Electric Sheep book launch at the Horse Hospital, London

To celebrate the publication of their first book, the folks from Electric Sheep Magazine held a launch party at the Horse Hospital, Colonnade, Bloomsbury WC1.

Entitled, ‘The End: An Electric Sheep Anthology’, the book is an enthralling collection of previously unpublished essays on the ‘darker side of cinema’.

The event kicked of with a panel discussion on apocalyptic cinema, and in attendance were writers and illustrators who had contributed to the book.

These included Electric Sheep editor Virginie Selavy, assistant editor Alex Fitch, writer and musician Frances Morgan, graphic artist and film writer Mark Stafford and Jim Harper, author of Flowers from Hell: The Modern Japanese Horror Film.

The Horse Hospital is an arts venue catering for literary and spoken word events, underground film and avantgarde media screenings, and visual art exhibitions.

Built in 1797 by James Burton (and possibly redeveloped sometime after 1860), the building originally served as a purpose-built stable, and was opened as an arts venue in 1993.

Getting stuck into the cake!
