Designed by Rob Carmichael and edited by SS Sandhu, The Twilight Language of Nigel Kneale is a limited-edition Risograph book – published by Texte und Töne in collaboration with the Colloquium for Unpopular Culture – to mark A Cathode Ray Séance: The Haunted Worlds of Nigel Kneale, a day-long event held in association with Strange Attractor in New York in November 2012. It’s the first collection of critical and artistic responses to Kneale’s pathfinding body of work ever published.

The book  also comes with Restligeists, a cassette featuring specially-composed pieces by The Asterism, Emma Hammond and Robin The Fog, Hong Kong In The 60s, Listening Centre, Mordant Music, and The Real Tuesday Weld.

The cassette is now sold out. Remaining copies of the book will come with this  poster:

    Hi, I found my way here c/o The Belbury Parish Magazine… This Nigel Kneale book looks lovely but, I was just wondering, do the copies you have in stock still have the supplementary cassette with them? If you could drop me a quick line of confirmation @ the above email I’d really appreciate it. Many thanks, R/R.

    Hi, as a Brazilian resident, I have a doubt: there are any way to get the book overseas? I appreciate any information about this question.
    Many thanks,

    Hello – I just placed my order but missed out on the cassette. It’ll be great to have the poster but I don’t suppose the music will be available as a download at any point? Thanks!

    Hey, just came across this though unfortunately a little late for the tape. I was wondering if orders would come with a download code?
