Eibonvale Press is announcing a call for works for an anthology on the theme of Lighthouses, which is to be edited by Sophie Essex. At the Lighthouse is intended to be a fiction anthology which must feature a lighthouse, either physical, imaginary, or tangential, in each story. The definition of lighthouse is yours, but it must engage with the concept. Think associative/dissociative, think Ray Bradbury’s The Foghorn, think Pharos by Alice Thompson, think Woolf, think Moore, think VanderMeer, think the films of 1998, 2016 or 2019, think beckoning, think warning, think outside the bulb.

We look forward to reading your work!

We’re pleased to announce our newest release, The January Estate by Charles Wilkinson! This chapbook  presents a pair of stories that showcase the author’s unique style. Wilkinson writes with a classical and subtle touch, mixing quiet historical writing with the haunting weird tale, shot through with elegance and refinement. This is the type of writing that slowly seeps its way into your mind, and that pulls you in slowly until you find yourself deep in the strangeness of it all. Available in hardcover and trade paperback, the chapbook can be purchased here.

New releases!

We are excited to announce our latest releases:

Gaseous Clay and Other Ambivalent Tales by John Travis is a full-length collection of 16 stories that straddle the line between horror and outsider art. Experimental and utterly unique, this outstanding volume offers a great example of British slipstream fiction! Available in hardcover and trade paperback.

Furious in the Expanse by Yarrow Paisley is our latest release in the Eibonvale Chapbook Line. A mini-collection of 14 idiosyncratic, transgressive and unclassifiable short pieces, and exactly the type of highly original work we’re proud to publish!

And coming very soon: the two-story mini-collection, The January Estate by Charles Wilkinson!

We’re very pleased to announce the official release of our newest title, #19 in the Eibonvale Chapbook Line: Affairs of a Cardiovascular Nature by Terry Grimwood! Now available for order here!

Or, if you’re interested in any of our chapbook bundle deals, have a look here.

Terry Grimwood is an author who has made a name for himself with his very powerful, human and wide-ranging fiction, covering horror, speculative, dystopian and other styles. This mini-collection gathers together some of his more innovative and experimental short fiction from all across that range. The title story is a grotesquely hilarious, absurdist and very British tale of love, intrigue and the exchange of hearts that reads like a post-modern PG Wodehouse fever-dream. It is joined by a collection of miniatures in the form of monologues or dialogues, ranging from a dystopian sales pitch and the political horrors revealed through a farcically unnerving interrogation, to a quiet restaurant meeting where the topic of discussion could hardly be greater or more shattering.  Affairs of a Cardiovascular Nature is an unusual example of British slipstream writing, a complex and bittersweet confection that deserves to be taken slowly.

Big thanks to Adam Groves of The Bedlam Files for his recent review of The Neo-Decadent Cookbook, edited by Brendan Connell and Justin Isis! And while you’re there, check out the VAST archive of book and film reviews – a fantastic reference!

631px-FullMoon2010Merry Christmas everybody!  It’s Christmas day and I am releasing a new call for works – mostly because this is the first day in a while when I’ve actually had a bit of time.  🙂

The Once and Future Moon brings back Eibonvale’s familiar and long-time partner Allen Ashley with a new themed anthology – you can probably guess which theme from the title.  Such celestial fiction, and even off-planet fiction, is relatively unusual for the press, so this will be an interesting addition to the catalogue – a slipstream take on what must be one of the ultimate themes.

Submissions open on 1st February – please don’t send anything yet – and publication will be in 2019.  You can find the full guidelines here: http://www.eibonvalepress.co.uk/infoforwriters.htm

Planet Suite

Eibonvale’s next title is now available to order through the Eibonvale website – The Planet Suite by Allen Ashley.  This is a new expanded edition of his extraordinary first novel, a vivid and almost hallucinatory SF work referencing Holst and far far more.

There will also be a launch event for the book at the Finchley Literary Festival on the 24th June: http://www.meetup.com/Finchley-Literary-Festival-Meetup/events/230752724/  Come if you can!
