In all honesty I have been thinking about this for some time, wondering whether or not anyone would be interested, but since I started producing these I have been pleasantly surprised at how popular they are, therefore I have decided to offer subscriptions at £10 for 4 issues.

Of course, a subscription displays a great deal of faith on your part – which is why to entice more of you, the first fifty to subscribe will receive a fifth chapbook free of charge!

If this interests you – and I sincerely hope it does, since it not only will give a much needed boost to the coffers to pay the authors and artist a little more for their hard-work – then pop along to the CHAPBOOKS page and press the button.

After much thinking, and deliberation, you can send in your short, sharp and shocking tales for consideration in this, the very first Pendragon Press e-anthology!

On Monday I returned from the fun in Brighton sun that was FantasyCon feeling revitalised – I still over-spent and sales were on the slow-side (but I was expecting that), but it was just the kick I needed to push me out of a recent malaise I was feeling with publishing: it was quickly becoming a chore; I wasn’t getting that excited really. I won’t bore you with financial pressures of running a business – yes, this is a business with accounts and tax-returns – since you too are also under the same strain (we all are, apart from a very select few) but prior to FantasyCon I came very close, very close indeed to saying, “fuck it” and closing up altogether, contacting authors, customers and printers, that sort of thing.

But, last weekend changed all that: it put a vim and a va-va-voom back in my step.

Of course, the recent controversy of that weekend did dampen my spirits a little but I am still in a fun mood…

Since returning from the weekend, I have received a number of orders for the three hardcovers and in a move to try and help customers out, I have slashed the price of said hardcovers by 50% – but only until the end of October. That’s Silversands, Feral Companions and We Fade to Grey for £6 each.

As always, I thank you for your continued custom and here’s to the future!
