Unearthly Powers: Prelude To A Nocturne

The first half of “Unearthly Powers,” the two-part tale that concludes the Jamie Hurst trilogy (also including “Full Throttle” and “Blackpool Rock”). “It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine…” Eternal love will be consummated. From Philip Nutman’s Cities of Night, this tale is one of a dozen stories leaping from Atlanta to Blackpool, London to New York, from Rome to Albuquerque via the city of Lost Angels—all cities of night.

ChiZine Publications (CZP) curates the best of the bizarre, bringing you the most excitingly weird, subtle, dark, and disturbing literary fiction. Look for more titles in the ChiZine short stories collection to build your digital library.


Philip Nutman is a man of many hats (literally, he has a very cool hat collection). He is a multi-award-nominated novelist for the seminal apocalyptic zombie espionage police procedural novel, Wet Work. An internationally acclaimed journalist who has written over 2,000 articles, he was Fangoria magazine’s British Correspondent for over 10 years. He is an award-winning screenwriter and producer (Jack Ketchum’s The Girl Next Door). And he has written and edited over 70 comic books. In 2009, he also became a brand of coffee (we’re not kidding; Philip Nutman’s Wet Work “coffee that’s a shot to the head” is available from www.coffeeshopofhorrors.com). An English ex-patriate, Nutman has made Atlanta his home since 1993. For more about his work, go to www.philipnutman.com.
