Ian R MacLeod’s short story SNODGRASS has been developed and produced for television by Made Up North Productions and will air on Sky Arts as part of their Playhouse series, on April 25th 2013. SNODGRASS is an alternate-reality tale, following a certain John Lennon – who quit the Beatles just before they became famous…
A 50 year old John Lennon (Ian Hart) sits in a dingy kitchen, smoking a roll up, unemployed and on his uppers. This is the John Lennon who walked out on the Beatles in 1962, before the hits, before they changed music for ever. A hilarious comedy drama which also stars Kevin Doyle and Eric McNichol.
Open Road Media will publish a ‘best of’ e-book collection of MacLeod’s short stories, enttled SNODGRASS AND OTHER ILLUSIONS, to coincide with the broadcast of SNODGRASS and will be publishing further titles from the author’s backlist later in the year – details to follow.
Ian R Macleod’s most recent novel, WAKE UP AND DREAM, won the Sidewise Award for Best Alternate History. His previous works have won the Arthur C. Clarke, John W. Campbell and World Fantasy Awards, and have been translated into multiple languages.
