Long Secret Ponthe Oldenguine History to be Published!!
« on: August 19, 2010, 12:03:31 AM »
Atomic Fez Publishing is delighted to make available the never-been-revealed, true story of the legendary Ponthe Oldenguine! Kept from the knowledge of the public for decades, now you can finally know what really happened in the halls of the BBC's Broadcasting house in the late 1960s and early-1970s!

Written with loving care and attention to details by noted British author Andriew Húk from notes left on his doorstep one day by a mysterious and smelly individual (who shouted "PORCU-PIIIIINE" through the letter-box before running away giggling), Ponthe Oldenguine is the man you've been denied any information about. So secret was Mr. Oldenguine's existence, you may not even be aware how badly you've wanted to know everything about him! But now, the story can be told and you can read it for yourself.

Here's something about the book itself:
Quote
If you want a picture of the future, Trunka,
imagine a boot stamping on a cake . . . forever.
Imagine just how glorious that would be.



Ponthe Oldenguine is one part fictional biography of a former television impresario who claims heís been hounded out of media history, and one part biography of the journalist commissioned to write his story. Where the tales merge, there is madness.

Trade Paperback copies of Ponthe Oldenguine are just $16.99 (Canada/USA) or £9.99 (UK/Others), with pre-orders being taken now. The electronic book (just $9.99 Canadian) will made available on the title's Official Publishing Date of October 8th 2010.

When it comes to writing fiction, Andrew Hook  is a sneaky bastard. He takes his reader gently by the hand, and leads them down a path until theyíre in a pleasant, lawned area with a bench. He sits them down, hands them a nice cup of tea, has a quiet conversation about various things that donít seem particularly connected to each other, and then asks permission to place a blindfold over the readerís eyes. This odd request granted, he does so. At which point one realizes that what he actually did was remove a blindfold, because everything that you saw until then was fiction, and one is actually sitting with cup of exceedingly fine coffee in the hand, and are surrounded by wonderful flora and fauna in the middle of a country field somewhere in the middle of the New Hebrides. This sudden change of awareness is surprising, but not unpleasant.

Thatís what his writing is like: full of surprises, always rewarding, always exceedingly seamless in its use of technique.

Heís good; so very, very good.

For those of you in North America, the books are here (see below); for those of you in the UK,
we'll see you at the Pendragon / Screaming Dreams / Atomic Fez table at FantasyCon.
