In case you always wanted to know, but were too afraid to ask: Pendragon Press has a page on Facebook and a Twitter feed.

I don’t generally “do” Twitter, but it turns out that every time I update the site it gets tweeted…

You give me a fiver…

… and I will send you a copy of Feral Companions, the limited signed hardback novella collection by Simon Maginn and Gary Fry. But, only the first ten people, though.

Be quick or be dead… well, not literally of course.

£5 to me via Paypal at chris at pendragonpress dot co dot uk.

The Places Between: reviews which slipped through…

Simon did tell me, but my memory has more leaks in it than a colander with very large holes. Anyway, this is his review of Terry Grimwood’s fabulous debut novella which is also long-listed for the British Fantasy Novella Award.

In addition, a review by Nathaniel Tapley of In the Gloaming who rather liked We Fade to Grey:

“The collection as a whole feels, in the best possible way, grim. No one gets out of it alive. Or at least, if they do, they’re bleeding heavily. . . This is British horror, and a great book, from an exciting small press.”

And, another review of We Fade to Grey from Matthew Fryer:

“[S]ets the bar high from the off and doesn’t pause for breath. . . All five authors weave genuine human pathos with blood and don’t then go and spoil everything with a happy ending. Brilliant. Grab one while you can.”

(. . . and it is also available has a limited edition, signed by all contributors.)

Delivery tomorrow, I have been promised. Pre-ordered copies will be despatched henceforth and forthwith. But, if you haven’t ordered yet… then do it now before I regain my sanity and remove the special offer of a 20% refund if you quote “popCult!” on your order…

Pendragon in the Mail!

Well, being reviewed in The Guardian is wonderful… but in the Daily Mail? well, that’s just plain surreal – and it’s very “promising” for popCult!
