THE EMPTY CHAIR — Coming AUGUST 2021
A novel thirty-four years in the making from Roger Keen, which holds up a skewed mirror to personal and cultural history, gaming the relationship of truth and fiction.
Steve Penhaligon confronts his father symbolically and then for real, and his Empty Chair takes on a life of its own as the cameras roll.Set in the milieu of the British film and TV industry from the 1980s through to the 2000s, the novel blends the genres historiographic metafiction and autofiction.
LITERARY STALKER — Coming SEPTEMBER 2017
Roger Keen branches into new territory with a psychological crime/thriller containing horror overtones, set within the milieu of the British horror, fantasy and sci-fi writing community.
Literary Stalker is also metafictional, using the device of novels-within-novels and exploring the interface between fiction and its sources in reality. In this respect, it builds on Roger’s previous book, the ‘novelistic memoir’, The Mad Artist, based on his experiences as an art student...and writing about them.
