Unrealistic emails keep coming and going. Now I've got to go to the post office to post an unrealistic letter. #projectLOCI

Writer John Moore-Reppion and Daily Grail's Greg Taylor have been working on a joint project, called projectLOCI. Okay it's not called that, its real name will be revealed soon.
But it is a collection of writing by twelve authors. You may recognise a few of them – Bryndís Björgvinsdóttir, Vajra Chandrasekera, Maria J. Pérez Cuervo, Warren Ellis, Alan Moore, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Kristine Ong Muslim, Dr. Joanne Parker, Mark Pesce, Iain Sinclair, Gazelle Amber Valentine and Damien Williams.
Not so unrealistic, it seems.
Edited, curated with an introduction by Reppion-Moore, it's "a book about place and our relationship to it; how ideas and stories and events become embedded into locations. And how people interact with those places; how they change the way we look at and think about ourselves and others."
Here's a bit of the cover by Pye Parr with that synopsis expanded a little. It should be out – with full, actual title, in a week or so.
And some previews of what to expect…
