Perverted by Language: Fiction Inspired by The Fall will be launched later this year. It’s a collection of short stories inspired by the music of Mark E. Smith’s band and the first of a series. I’ve often used song lyrics and titles to name stories and blog posts. So Much to Answer For is from a throwaway line in a Ned’s Atomic Dustbin song and there has also been Ten Years Asleep, from a Kingmaker song, and Out of Fashion and a Trifle Uncool, from a line in Echo Beach. And those are just the ones I can think of right now.
