Electricity: a podcasted novel by myke bartlett
Aston Somerfield, casual smoker and part-time alcoholic, has come to London to find himself. He knows who he's looking for, he's seen him on the cover of the NME. Drawn across oceans by fame and fate, Aston is keeping his diary empty to make sure he's available. Won't commit to anything until it's everything.
London, however, has other ideas.
When a virtual stranger calls Aston a few hours before his death, fate catches up with him, derailing his barely-made plans. Amid a hundred boozy evenings and romantic deadends, a mystery unfurls.
Equally assisted and hindered by tremulous accountant Tom Hensley and dedicated loafer Steven Black, Aston uncovers a different London, one of murder, ghosts, dangerous emails and the second big bang.
As chaotic and random as the city it inhabits, Electricity gradually evolves into a mystery bigger than the universe itself. Being of a somewhat useless persuasion, Aston does his best to ignore it.

Electricity: The Trailer!
After some seemingly endless mixing and jiggery pokery with suddenly vanishing monologues, a nice, long trailer for Electricity is now finally and properly online at http://electricity.podshow.com/
Alternatively, you can download the trailer directly here
At this stage, there will be two versions of Electricity:
a) one which will eventually appear at Podiobooks featuring royalty-free music
b) a "remixed" version which will be available a bit sooner at podshow featuring a top selection of music from 1999.
I hope you enjoy it! The book launches at podshow in June.
