Congratulations to Inch 9 contributor Christopher Meades who has just released a novel, The Last Hiccup, with ECW Press.




A little bit about the The Last Hiccup:

A darkly funny, tragic, and ultimately heroic novel set in 1930s Russia, The Last Hiccup is the story of Vladimir, an eight-year-old boy stricken with a case of the hiccups that lasts over a decade.

Put through a series of extraordinary, often bizarre treatments by a famous physician, Sergei Namestikov, Vlad is spirited away from his rural home and doting mother to a hospital in Moscow. But Sergei’s chief medical rival, the brilliant Alexander Afiniganov, believes that beneath Vladimir’s mirror-less eyes lurks a pure, unbridled evil, and Vlad is removed from polite society. Isolated from everyone and everything — save his hiccups — Vladimir grows up to find inner peace among the hiccupping. On his way back into the world he once knew, through a country now in the midst of war, he encounters many strange people and situations, always wondering what would happen to him should a cure for his now-comforting affliction be found.

You can read an excerpt of The Last Hiccup on Meandes’ website and purchase a signed copy (!) of the novel through Paypal here.
