To recap: The author has provided a bundle of extremely rare signed and numbered chapbooks – highly limited runs of works from 2013 that have previously only been available as ebooks. Only ten copies were ever made of each title and they have never been offered for sale. I have 18 copies in total and the first 18 orders for the hardcover of How Many Times? will receive a randomly selected chapbook as a free gift. This will be strictly first come first served (going by the time the order is placed with Paypal) and for this reason, I will be opening the orders for this title at 6PM UK time, Saturday 31st March. Please be ready to place orders then as I have no idea how quickly these will go! This only applies to orders placed directly with Eibonvale Press and only to the hardback edition. Any questions or anything I have forgotten, please drop me an email!

A very curious little book will be available to order as of next Saturday – How Many Times? by Rhys Hughes. Hughes has never been a stranger to experimental fiction and unusual ways of constructing stories, and this mini-collection gathers some of his most far-reaching examples, placed squarely in the world of OuLiPo writing. Short for Ouvroir de littérature potentielle or the workshop of potential literature, OuLiPo is a grouping of authors who fashion works based on constrained writing techniques – writing that follows rigorous and extremely precise rules concerning structure and layout etc. And here, we encounter works based on rigid numerical constraints, works in the form of grids that can be read in any direction, and a “logico-erotic tale in which the permutations of the sexual acts are based on the workings of logic gates.”

The intricacy of construction within these carefully defined restraints is stunning but the resulting literary world is still very much the author’s own, filled with his characteristic sense of humour, the absurd and the fantastical.

This is a slim but large-format book to provide space for all the complex layouts, grids, structures etc. that make up these stories.  The contents list is as follows:

In addition, we have a special special offer for the first 18 purchases of the hardback.  The author has provided a bundle of extremely rare signed and numbered chapbooks – highly limited runs of works from 2013 that have previously only been available as ebooks.  Only ten copies were ever made of each title and they have never been offered for sale.  I have 18 copies in total and the first 18 orders for the hardcover of How Many Times? will receive a randomly selected chapbook as a free gift.  This will be strictly first come first served (going by the time the order is placed with Paypal) and for this reason, I will be opening the orders for this title at 6PM UK time, Saturday 31st March.  Please be ready to place orders then as I have no idea how quickly these will go!  This only applies to orders placed directly with Eibonvale Press and only to the hardback edition.  Any questions or anything I have forgotten, please drop me an email!

I will announce this again on Saturday – but remember the date!  🙂

Here is a look at the cover of Brendan Connell’s chapbook Curious Births to Light the Universe. This style of art is very different to the usual Eibonvale covers, but one that I really enjoy doing and one that I hope rather lends itself to chapbooks.  I hope there will be more of these.

Just to reiterate, there will be only 50 copies of this 44 page book of microfictions and they will only be available as a free gift alongside Hardcover preorders of his collection Pleasant Tales, or as a special bundle with the paperback. Visit the Eibonvale Press website for more info and to get copies while they last.  Way over half of them have already sold, so if you want a copy of this, don’t delay too much longer!

Yesterday (ok, Saturday to you – don’t ask about my sleeping patterns!) the extras for Alexander Zelenyj’s Songs for the Lost bundle deals finally arrived!  That is, the chapbook containing a few new stories, the signed bookplates and the special ‘tickets’, which the world will have to decipher for itself if it can.  Some copies have already been sent out and the rest will be going out over the next few days I hope.  The special bundle deals are now closed for this title, but keep an eye on our blog as we often offer these special deals to launch a book.

Please note that those of you who also ordered the new edition of Experiments at Three Billion A.M. will receive your copy later when the book is published.

Ok folks! We are now good to go on the special lettered edition bundles of our latest title: Alexander Zelenyj’s massive new collection Songs For The Lost and its companion book Ballads To The Burning Twins with matching lettered bookplates, one of a range of very rare Deathray Bradburies ticket stubs that will serve very well as bookmarks, and best of all, Forgotten Hymns Of The Death Angels – a signed lettered ‘zine-style’ chapbook produced by the author containing four additional stories that will not be available for sale outside this offer.

Zelenyj is an author distinguished by the extraordinary levels of bleak honesty and human pain in his writing – an almost unique perspective on the human condition in my experience, coupled with roots deep into classic genre forms which are then transmuted into something entirely new – a classic facet of slipstream writing.  His works remain among the strongest, strangest and most emotional I have ever been privileged to publish.

The bundles will open for orders on:

WEDNESDAY  27/08/14 – 21:00 London Time.

at this link: http://www.eibonvalepress.co.uk/specials.html

At that time the order buttons will go live (refreash the page!).  In the meantime though you can find more info there so take a look.

They often sell fast so keep an eye out, especially if you want a chance at the coveted letter A!

The slightly late hour is to give buyers in Canada and the USA a chance. Alexander Zelenyj is a Canadian author after all!

And just to reiterate – the price of Songs is a little higher than usual due to printing costs because it is a HUGE book! 34 stories no less. Over twice the size of many of our publications. It is a book that will last you a long time and take you to many places. This is our first book in far too long – and I am starting to feel as though we are coming back with a bang!

 

New Arrivals!

New arrivals! Alexander Zelenyj’s Songs For The Lost and it’s companion ‘extra’ Ballads To The Burning Twins – actually a full hardcover poetry/lyrics/photography collection. Some ‘extra’! If all goes well, I will get the lettered preorders for these plus special extras open this weekend. Keep an eye out here or on the Eibonvale facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/eibonvale ) and newsletter – remember the first customer to order gets the coveted letter A!

Well – it’s been a while, hasn’t it.  Things have been very quiet round here lately – you might almost say I took a year off.  Partly I had my own writing project to work on (my novel Meat) and partly, lets be honest, I was just exhausted.  It takes it out of you, running a small press – trying to sell books, keep writers happy (herding cats anyone?) and keep up with the admin and paperwork.  But I am pleased to say that things are moving again here – and it is with a certain ship-launching, bottle-of-campaign excitement that I can reveal the first cover of 2014 – Alexander Zelenyj’s Songs for the Lost.  Zelenyj is an absolute master of emotional horror, melancholy, passion and the delicate art of drawing on classic pop-culture and genre forms to create something highly complex, challenging and really quite visionary.  This is a spectacular big book and a fitting way to ‘break my fast’ as it were.

Songs 10 Final

We will be running our usual online ordering fun and games for the first 26 copies – keep your eyes open for that.  I will also be rushing these through and hope to have some of them available at FantasyCon 2014.

Most exciting of all, there will also be a small second book by the same author released alongside and forming a companion piece.  Ballads To The Burning Twins will essentially be a poetry collection – or more accurately a set of imaginary ‘lyrics’ that is intimately connected to the main Songs For The Lost.  I hope to make it a slim hardcover, but no promises yet!

Full details will be released shortly, but buyers of the special bundles will get both books plus some other exclusive goodies.  So well worth getting ready to pounce!

Just discovered a small technical error on our sales page. *sigh* – not one that affected ordering so if you have placed an order, I should have it safe – but one that affected FINDING it, which I guess is kind of important. That has been fixed now.

And hey – it doesn’t do any harm to remind people as well, so to reiterate – we currently have some nice ‘choose your own bundle’ offers connected to our three latest titles, Rustblind and Silverbright, Miss Homicide Plays the Flute by Brendan Connell and Caledonia Dreamin.  All three of these are up there among the most exciting titles we have ever released, I think. ‘Homicide’ is our first ever luxurious limited edition, a beautiful book and a unique and strange read. Rustblind and Silverbright has been attracting rave reviews – one of our most successful titles. And in the short time since publication, Caledonia Dreamin has proved one of our best sellers.

I think it is time for another sale here at Eibonvale Press – to clear some space and make a little cash ready for our next two titles. This time, if you buy the hardcover of one of our three latest titles, you can choose another three books for a special bundle price. That’s any eibonvale book you fancy! So here’s a chance to stock up a bit.

Our three latest titles are Miss Homicide Plays the Flute by Brendan Connell and the anthologies Rustblind and Silverbright and Caledonia Dreamin’. All three of these are up there among the most exciting titles we have ever released, I think. ‘Homicide’ is our first ever luxurious limited edition, a beautiful book and a unique and strange read. Rustblind and Silverbright has been attracting rave reviews – one of our most successful titles. And in the short time since publication, Caledonia Dreamin has proved one of our best sellers.

The pre-orders for Brendan Connell’s new novel Miss Homicide Plays the Flute are now open. This is one of the most unusual books Eibonvale has worked on, with multicoloured inks and a hugely eccentric cover (which you will have to wait a little to see i’m afraid!). Perhaps most importantly though, this is our first ever signed and numbered limited edition, printed by Anthony Rowe.

The first 26 copies to be ordered will come with a free and exclusive lettered chapbook entitled Drops of Poison.
