About this project
About the campaign:
We are publishing An Unreliable Guide to London in July 2016. We are raising £2500 to help cover the cost of the book.
We have a fantastic array of writers and believe everyone should be paid for their contribution. By pledging, you help us achieve this ahead of publication.
This campaign is as simple as pre-ordering your copy of An Unreliable Guide to London, but with incredible bonus extras as you slide up the reward scale.
About the Book:
An Unreliable Guide to London brings together 24 stories about the lesser known parts of a world renowned city. Stories that stretch the reader's definition of the truth. Stories that have you questioning reality. Stories of wind nymphs in South Clapham tube station, the horse sized swan at Brentford Ait, Sleeping Clinics in N1 and celebrations for St Margaret's Day of the Dead.
Taking its cue from travel guides, London histories and books like Tired of London, Tired of Life, An Unreliable Guide to London will shake up the canon of London writing with a tongue firmly rooted in its cheek.
An Unreliable Guide to London is the perfect summer read for city dwellers up and down the country. With a list of contributors reflecting the multilayered, complex social structures of the city, it is the guide to London, showing you everything that you never knew existed.

Risks and challenges
We've got a proven track record delivery high quality, interesting books. The book is already written, and is just waiting to be typeset. We just want to make sure we can pay all our writers a decent wedge, and do it before the book is released. Plus... look at those rewards!
The rewards will be delivered in July - there might be a slight delay in shipping to Europe and the rest of the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
