Undermined by creep channels, home to soul-eating demons bored by their bland diet, the last resting place of the frayed and venerable Moral Fibre, Accomplice is a city like no other. Only Steve Aylett's extraordinary imagination could have created it, only his prose could have brought it to such frankly bizarre life. Accomplice is where William Burroughs would have dragged Alice to once he'd kidnapped her from Wonderland. It is thought provoking and satiric, always odd in ways that only real life can match. In the foreground is the feud between Sweeney, a demon, and Barny, a preoccupied innocent who has inadvertently become Sweeney's nemesis. Barny's immediate circle of friends and co-workers live lives of constantly grotesque scrapes on the bizarre streets of Accomplice. Other characters include Plantin Edge, Beltane Carom, Dietrich Hmmerwire, Golden Sid, Rakeman and doomed Eddie Gallo. More mystical are Accomplice's resident superheroes; the Rip and Dungboy.
Steve Aylett delivers readings like stand-up comedy routines. Lauded by Paul de Fillipo, Michael Moorcock, The Evening Standard, iD magazine and The Guardian, he is at the forefront of a new 'new wave' of British writing.
