Publishing interesting books...

We published our first book City without a head in 2013 to rave reviews. City without a head is an anthology of creative writing, which if you had to search for it online, might be found under the sub-headings of 'psychogeography', or poetry about place, or experimental prose. Since then we have been working on developing our micro-publishing project. We currently have a number of books in development, with several pamphlets planned.

The Unbearable Sheerness of Being by Barry Fentiman Hall
Paperback, 28pp, 2016

£5 (+ £1.50 UK postage)

Thirteen poems and one story all inspired by the Isle of Sheppey. From scorpions, and teenagers, to an escaped dog and an encounter with a timeless entity, follow in BFH's fantastical footsteps as he travels round the island, observing and imagining, and make sure you beware the Big Bad...  Barry is a poet, performer and presenter with a taste for psychogeography. 

"a kind of nautical magical realism, told on a lingering poetic note with hole punches of bog standard humanity" Sarah Hehir

Dip in and out of this collection of short stories, poems and other ephemera inspired by life in cities... City without a head is an alternative index of life in the city. It is a collection of poetry and prose taking the theme of an alphabetical index. It is not a guide book. If you are lost it cannot help you find your way, but it may help you pass the time until the the way finds you.

 

Reviews of City without a head:

“This is a city that does not do, or suffer, or change; instead, its parts fall into place like small dead meat on an ocean floor...”

Cover of An assemblance of judicious heretics

Writing and artwork by long-standing and established writers and artists sits alongside the work of new talent in this stunning anthology-catalogue. (Nominated in the Kent Culture Awards 2016.) Taking Robert Frost's poem 'The Road Not Taken' as inspiration, 33 writers wrote stories, poems and a play. The writing was then given anonymously to 35 artists who then interpreted the new text in whatever medium they wanted: and the art was featured in an exhibition in September 2015. Words and art are reproduced in full in this gorgeous A5 full colour book. (There are too many heretics to list in full here - but you can read more on the Judicious Heretics page.)
