Information:

The legendary Crick Crack Club brings its wild haven of fairytale, myth and epic to the Cube.

Put on your lucky socks, don your finest charms, and pick a card from the pack as we place ourselves in the hands of kismet, karma and Kassandra – she who could see exactly what was coming, but was never believed.

THE TOENAIL, by DANIEL MORDEN
What is luck anyway?
A random event dressed in a story?
Or is it a matter of attitude - what you do with the hand you are dealt?

Scattering salt, crossing black cats and knocking on wood as he goes, Daniel Morden delves deep into the lucky dip of life to unwrap a bundle of absurd coincidences and bizarre occurrences. Expect horned princesses, dipstick squirrels and fortuitous toenails...

'To experience Daniel Morden in full flight is an amazing thing' IAN MACMILLAN

AND

FUTURE IMPERFECT - the curse of Kassandra, by LUCY LILL
Gobbed on by a god,
Blessed with the power to see the future,
Cursed with never being believed,
Meet Kassandra...

Following a path less trodden, Lucy Lill, rakes through the ashes of a fallen city to find the story of those who knew exactly what was coming, but did nothing about it. Here a young woman bargains for unheard of powers and a new god smashes his way to the centre of the world.
