Ian Alexander Martin, the proprietor of Atomic Fez, says that the press is â€œentirely filled with joy to declare the following points of incredible wondrousness”:
â€œThe winner of the World Horror Convention contest where the lucky soul would have a â€˜wickedly delightful champagne breakfast with the author of Wicked Delight; was Stephen Bacon. Author John Llewellyn Probert, his Lady Kathleen, and the publisher joined Mr Bacon at the Radisson Blu Hotel and enjoyed a selection of croissants, jams, breads, and the fine champagne recommended by the ever-so French manager of the lounge.â€ For details on Probertâ€™s Wicked Delights go here.
And speaking of Wicked Delights: the initial printing has entirely sold out. The book is now being simultaneously re-printed on both sides of the Atlantic, thereby reaching its third reprinting in less than as many months.
Also having substantial sales, and thus necessitating a reprint is The Terror and the Tortoiseshell, John Travis’s dÃ©but novel about a feline private eye and based around H L Menken’s The Terror having actually happened.
Other recent Atomic Fez publications worthy of your attention are: Twisthorn Bellow by Rhys Hughes and James Cooper’s The Beautiful Red. Cooper, according to Peter Tennant in Black Static is â€˜one of the most promising writers to emerge from the small press in recent yearsâ€™.
