Tim Dry’s Ricochet is a novella-length blasphemical wedding of fevered edginess, violence, drug-fuelled nightmares, psychedelia, and madness, set in London and Paris, and written in the mould of a collision between Hunter S. Thompson and William Burroughs. Partly a stream of consciousness narrative and partly a morality tale for the end times, it’s a signpost to the apocalypse of the nuclear imagination, the logical implosive endpoint of the Beatnik generation’s experiment. Here lies the carcass of reality in all its rotting, putrid, and fully decomposed glory: it’s what remains of the dreams of the Love Generation, laid bare for all to see.

Ricochet is the first volume in a projected series of novellas based in the same chaotic universe. This one will surprise, enlighten, infuriate, anger and repulse in equal measure.


Tim Dry is a writer, mime, musician and photographic artist, best known for being featured as J’Quille and a Mon Calamari Officer in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi , playing The Alien in the cult Sci Fi/horror movie Xtro and for being half of the Tik and Tok duo that popularized robotic  mime in the UK in the 1980s.
