September was a busy month: James Well’s novel Hack was simultaneously published via Smashwords and as an Amazon Kindle edition, which is available for £2.88 from the .co.uk site, $4.48 in the US, and roughly equivalent prices in different currencies across the other Global Amazon sites. Free samples are available, with the most comprehensive – the first 15% – and in a range of formats being available from Smashwords.
Christopher Nosnibor conducted an in-depth interview with James, which can be found on his blog.

We’ve also just launched Kindle editions of Clinical, Brutal… An Anthology of Writing With Guts and Bill Thunder’s brutally hard-boiled detective novel, The Bastardizer. These now join Christopher Nosnibor’s furiously experimental anti-novel THE PLAGIARIST, and further titles will be added shortly.

Finally, we’re always on the lookout for new material for our Blog/zine. If you think you have a piece of poetry or prose with enough punch to knock out a frenzied lion, get in touch via the website.

Cutting-edge cult underground publisher Clinicality Press have redoubled their attempts to assault the world’s literary frontiers by publishing a selection of titles as Amazon Kindle editions. Beginning with the twin blast of their latest title, ‘Hack’ by first-time author James Wells, coupled with Bill Thunder’s brutal pulp novel ‘The Bastardizer.’

About ‘Hack’:

Rob Price is a music journalist. He’s a hard-drinking hack who’s frustrated, skint and cynical, and he’s drowning in a pile of CDs to review that he simply doesn’t have the time to listen to. He’s not only got money issues, but girlfriend issues, flatmate issues, personal hygiene issues and a rampant libido he’s incapable of keeping in check after a few pints.

‘Hack’ follows Rob round endless seedy dive venues as he finds himself at odds with the people he meets in an industry teeming with hangers on, wannabes, maybes and no-hopers, as he sneers, snorts, tokes and spews his way through a succession of sordid encounters and dangerous liaisons in his quest for that ‘big’ story.

A graphic and darkly comic tale of misanthropy, music and misadventure, ‘Hack’ makes Lester Bangs seem positively straight edge in comparison to Price. This book is to music journalism what John Niven’s ‘Kill Your Friends’ is to A&R – only grimier, slimier and grittier. While some writers go for the jugular, James Wells just goes straight for the jugs.

Meanwhile, ‘The Bastardizer’ takes detective genre fiction on a journey straight to hell, as PI Bill Thunder ducks, dives, kicks and punches his way through the sordid underworld of Internet pornography in his quest to find a missing man.

With more titles to follow before the end of the year, Clinicality Press look set to leave their mark – a bloodied stain – on 2011.

http://clinicalitypress.co.uk

Described as ‘disturbing’ and ‘what black metal is to Led Zeppelin’, Bill Thunder’s hard-hitting novel ‘The Bastardizer’ goes digital as Clinicality Press publish in e-book format via Smashwords.

Clinicality’s director, Stuart Bateman said ‘Clinicality Press is a very 21st century publisher. We like books in print, and will always publish in print, but e-books are where it’s at now. Plus, just because we’re niche doesn’t mean we don’t want to reach the broadest possible audience for our books’.

More of the current Clinicality catalogue is scheduled to follow the route of Thunder’s novel in the coming months, along with new titles that are in the pipeline.

‘These are exciting times,’ Bateman said, ‘and we publish exciting books’.

About ‘The Bastardizer’:

Bill Thunder is your average disaffected, world-weary misanthropic PI. He’s been there, done that, seen it all and got it remembered in the minutest, most obsessive detail. But this is a case that sees him tested to his limits. There’s nothing unusual about a missing man… but things are a little more complicated when the missing person happens to share a name with the world’s most famous recently-deceased celebrity. While on the hunt for Michael Jackson – a wealthy businessman – Thunder risks life and limb as he trawls the violent underworld of shady dealings and Internet pornography.

‘Thunder’s nearly machinelike character is the novel’s most disturbing element. The blood and dustups are secondary… recommended for readers who like their tales short and violent, and their heroes as brutal as their villains.’ – Nicholas Towasser, Dissident Books

‘…a good change of pace from the normal genre of books.’ – ManicReaders

‘Mediocre crime fiction it ain’t. If the prose was any more hard-boiled, demolition companies would be buying up copies of this book and using them as wrecking balls.’ – Christopher Nosnibor, editor of ‘Clinical, Brutal… An Anthology of Writing with Guts’

The Bastardizer is available now via Smashwords and various other digital outlets. The book is also available in print from Amazon, etc., and direct from Clinicality Press.

With just over a week left in the Clinicality Press January sale, we’ve made some further reductions to our titles.

There’s now 30% off The Bastardizer by Bill Thunder, which means it’s only £5.25.

What the critics have said:

‘…recommended [for] readers who like their tales short and violent, and their heroes as brutal as their villains.’ – Nicholas Towasser, Library Thing.

‘Thunder’s debut at once reinvigorates and exhausts the well-worn detective / crime fiction genre, presenting a classic pulp first-person narrative with a contemporary and deeply misanthropic twist.’ – Christopher Nosnibor

‘…a good change of pace from the normal genre of books.’ – Goodreads.com

Plus, our genre-smashing collection of poetry and prose Clinical Brutal… An Anthology of Writing With Guts has a whopping 40% off, making it just £4.79! Features: Pablo Vision / Kestra Faye / Jim Lopez / Radcliff Gregory / Díre McCain / Stewart Home / A.D. Hitchin / Christopher Nosnibor / Richard Kovitch / Lee Kwo / S. F. Grimm / David Mark Dannov / D M Mitchell / Jock Drummond / Lucius Rofocale / Stuart Bateman / Karl van Cleave / Vincent Clasper / Constance Stadler / Bill Thunder / Christopher Bateman / Simon Phillips / Maria Gornell

What the critics have said:

‘These are works driven by a raw edginess arising from a world of violence and fragmentation that the authors are seemingly trying to comprehend… at its best this clinical, brutal writing can in many instances be cynical, beautiful writing.’ – Christopher Willard, Bookpleasures.com

‘… a nauseating and very surreal collection of short stories and poems that captured my attention from the front cover, to the very last page… Reading the whole book in one sitting is overwhelming and really messes with your head.’ – Victoria Gonzales, ReaderViews

‘An interesting… experiment in forcing its reader to confront the “beast within”.’ – Lavanya Karthick, Bookpleasures.com

 

Finally, we’ve knocked 10% off Christopher Nosnibor’s dual-narrative brain-bender From Destinations Set, which is now available for just £9.00. It’s also available to download for FREE.

To order all of these and more, go to Clinicality Press’ shop: http://clinicalitypress.co.uk/Publications.aspx – But hurry, the sale ends on January 31st!

It’s been all systems go at Clinicality today, with The Gimp by Christopher Nosnibor and Kicks by Vincent Clasper being unleashed simultaneously. Both are available to order from Clinicality as of now, and will be available through the usual on-line retail outlets in the coming weeks.

These publications are both intended to be sharp, short shocks, clocking in at under 50 pages apiece and graced with covers that aren’t intended to be particularly cuddly. We like it like that.

Today also sees Bill Thunder’s ultra-hard-boiled detective novel, The Bastardizer go global. Unfortunately, we’ve had to up the price to cover the distribution pricing arrangements, but the trade-off is that it will soon be showing up on searches and available through Amazon and all the rest. One other plus point is that we’ve managed to retain the ‘pocket’ format for the trade paperback edition, meaning it’s still the compact 4.25” x 6.9” we’d always wanted it to be. We’ve also made it available as a download at a very reasonable £1.99 as of now, and hope to run some special promotions in the near future.

Hop on over to the website for more info and to order all Clinicality Press publications, and keep watching this space for more exciting new fiction on-line.
