It is an ambitious, thoroughly conceived, and beautifully-executed new work.One soul will be published in late-July/early-August by Oni Press.
Author Ray Fawkes will be reading and presenting from One Soul, and will participate in a lively interview about his life and career. Copies of One Soul and other works by Fawkes will be available for sale at the event, courtesy of The Beguiling.
