Calling all fans of Mark West outside the UK – or even fans of gritty, crime novellas: you can now download the DRIVE ebook for $1.25 here. Can you afford not to check out this most gripping of tales?

If you don't believe me, Mark has collated a list of much love for it.

In fact, UK fans of Mark or gritty, crime novellas can download the book for a meagre 77p here.

The first post-publication review is in, and it is a cracker:

"[O]nce I started to read, I found it difficult to stop… a great tale, atmospheric and exciting."

Have you still not read it?

Of course, if you prefer your book physical then signed copies are also still available. :)

It's official – Pendragon Press' first official ebook. I'm finally getting on down with the kids, daddio. You can now purchase Mark West's novella for the Kindle.

I consider this the start of something…

Updates….

Proofed and with the bookplates all signed, Mark West's DRIVE is in production and should be with me any day now, with the ebook due to enter production following…

Neil Wiliams' THE DERELICT is on track for a FantasyCon launch and has just received a superb quote from William Meikle, "… a spooky nautical tale worthy of William Hope Hodgson himself. Atmospheric and genuinely chilling. I loved it."

Closing the year, I'm hoping to launch Stuart Young's collection REFLECTIONS IN THE MIND'S EYE in London in December.

Talking of FantasyCon, Pendragon shall be there in the dealer's room albeit with a limited number of titles – no driving this year, I shall be allowing the train take the strain. Arriving on Thursday and staying until the Monday, looking forward to spending a day or two wandering around York.

Just to re-iterate the special offer in the previous post: any hard cover purchased between now and FantasyCon (which gives you a month) will net not just the hardback itself but also a copy of Mark, Neil and Stuart's books.

In other news, it is more than likely that Uther Books will be launched next year. Taking the form of a new imprint for electronic-only chapbooks, open to all for download to your Kindle and any other device you can think of. Still thrashing out the finer details, but watch this space.

Packing and Special Offer

Sorting out the ol' convention sack for EdgeLit in Derby this weekend where I will "theoretically" by launching Mark West's new novella Drive. Alas, no actual copies will be on sale – except for the proof copy – but Mark will be busy signing the bookplates for the actual books when they rush off the printer.

Further to this… any hardback purchased between now and the publication of Stuart's collection (scheduled for FantasyCon in September) will net the buyer a copy of Mark's novella, Stuart's collection and Neil Williams' debut novella The Derelict.

Hope to see some of you in Derby this Saturday on what is forecast to be the hottest and wettest day of the year.

Driven!

… and now, the excellent noir-esque final cover by Mark for his novella, Drive.

Coming soon: a trailer!

I've known Mark West for a long-time now – since his story in Tourniquet Heart (2002) – and it is safe to say that I like his writing. When I first read the manuscript to this, a novella which I believe is very much his strength as a writer, I understandably enjoyed it but moreso the fact it is very different to his usual horror stuff; in fact, there are no horror tropes – it is a pure, unadulterated gritty urban crime drama.

The book though has been languishing in the Pendragon "to be published" pile and fair play to Mark he hasn't badgered me too much… but I'm glad to say the day has arrived, well… technically, that day is in July during Edge-Lit in Derby but I'm officially announcing it available for pre-order since only 100 paperback copies will be printed, but a mass-market ebook will be available closer to the time.

So, without further ado, check out book page and pre-order your copy before it sells out. And I know it will…

Hardcover blow-out

From now until the end of the year, prices for the remaining stock of Silversands, Feral Companions and We Fade to Grey hardcovers have been reduced.

Though the latter two are signed, the signed copies of Silversands have long since sold out.

In other news, a Review of 2012 is forthcoming…

Over at This is Horror, Gary McMahon writes about this his second anthology has editor.

Unfortunately, there are no more signed copies left… but you can still have a numbered hardcover – and paperback of course (but the hardcovers are much, well, nicer to behold.)

… and, a review of Mark West's The Mill (which originally appeared in We Fade to Grey). If like the reviewer you would prefer to read the story within a collection, then of course copies of the numbered/signed hardcover still available. :)

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.)
