Our latest full-size book is Humanagerie, edited by Sarah Doyle and Allen Ashley – a combined poetry and prose fiction collection.  Inspired by notions of the animalistic, Humanagerie is a vivid exploration of the nebulous intersection of human and beast. From cities to wilderness, buildings to burrows, and coastlines to fish-tanks, these thirty-two poems and thirteen short stories explore emergence and existence, survival and self-mythology, and the liminal hinterland between humanity and animality.

Our latest chapbook is also available now – Crossfaded in Narnia by Ian Kappos – a stunning dark mini-collection filled with broken homes, drug addictions and lost causes.  These five stories follow disaffected youths through the day-to-day routines that help them cope and into more surreal territory, where the destitute and the otherworldly intertwine.

From exploding televisions and absent parents to concerned therapists, crustacean junkies, and friendships cut tragically short, Crossfaded in Narnia burrows into the grit to take a closer look at the mystery beneath.

As usual, it is available in both hardcover and paperback.

I have also launched a new chapbook bundle deal on the website where you can choose any three chapbooks for £15 / £30 – click here for more info.

The Eibonvale Chapbook Line is temporarily closing to submissions.  I have had a massive massive response to this and I need to work through them all and actually set about making some more books.  The decision-making has been and is predictably challenging – and if you haven’t heard from me yet, then you should do in the next couple of weeks.

This closure is only temporary and I hope to reopen again when I have released a few more titles.  Thanks to everyone who has sent material in!

I now have three more chapbooks accepted for Eibonvale Press. I shall reveal more shortly, but for now, I am very happy to welcome three excellent short works by Ian Kappos (Crossfaded in Narnia), Gaurav Monga (Family Matters) and David Gullen (Third Instar). I will not be rushing these out immediately like last time – Rosanne Rabinowitz’s collection Resonance and Revolt is definitely the next project on the list – but I hope to get them out in the first half of this year.

And if you still have submissions with me, this doesn’t mean it’s over. I am still reading and making selections – and still keen to receive more as well, especially from women authors. Check the Eibonvale Press website for more details.

The new Eibonvale Press Chapbook Line is now a reality, with no less than three small books available to order – in both hardcover and paperback.  You don’t see that many hardcover chapbooks around unfortunately but I am really pleased with the results.  The first set of books includes titles by Kristine Ong Muslim, D. F. Lewis and Tom Johnstone.  They can be purchased either individually or as a set on the Eibonvale website: http://www.eibonvalepress.co.uk/chapbooks.html

 

And a reminder – I am still open for submissions for more chapbooks.  Indeed, I hope to keep this permanent. I am especially keen to hear from the under-represented and those not published by Eibonvale before.  You can find full details here: http://www.eibonvalepress.co.uk/infoforwriters.htm
