Everything you see, Asimov, is a deception.’ This book is a collection of deceptions, of reflections, of fictions, of distractions and distortions. ‘Media Unfriendly’ features vignettes, short stories, improvisations, meditations and sketches inspired by, but not exclusive, to John Simm, Five Star, Elvis impersonators, cream jeans, androids, Italo disco, Nicole Kidman, media barons, psychosis, local councils, Swedish pop groups and idea material one cannot mention in a family publication. It requires your emotional and financial investment, and your attention span. You could ‘Like’ if you are a slave to platitudes. Or buy it, if this blurb is not considered too smug to the point that you want to smash the authors face in. With a horse skull.

About the Author

Jason Winstanley has a bit of form in the area of creative writing. His first ever published piece was on the subject of what it feels like to be the skull of a badger. (This is true) Since then he has written a novella, 'Replika' and more recently, his first full length play, 'The Travesty', which was performed in the 2013 Words Festival in Wigan. He currently works in Vicenza, Italy, where he teaches Italians (young and old) how to speak in a north of England accent. However he would like to DJ in a cool, sexy club, where he can play what he likes.
