Welcome to 2018. We’re starting as we threatened to, with the publication of Retail Island, Christopher Nosnibor’s first longform work of fiction in five years.
It’s available to order in print or as an eBook from our store front here.
It will be avaiable globally via Amazon and most other major on-line retailers before long.
We’re elated to announce the publication of Christopher Nosnibor’s new book, The RAGE Monologues, in print, today. To celebrate the launch, we’re offering it at a special offer dicount price with 25% off the retail price of £5.99 (or domestic currency equivalent) for a limited period only.
The blurb: Modern life is full of niggles and frustrations. It’s also bursting with ballaches and tempestuous turmoils on a global scale. What is it that winds you up or grinds your gears? Sometimes, it’s an accumulation of the little things that push you to, or over, the brink. So, what gets under your skin, gnaws away at your gut, and drives you crazy? For Christopher Nosnibor, the answer is pretty much everything. Evolved as a spoken word project over the course of three years, ‘The Rage Monologues’ is the hoarse, enraged, spittle-spraying voice of one man against the world. Politics, media, poetry, and post office queues – it’s open season in this collection of splenetic, profanity-laden tirades. By turns amusing, sad, and simply ire-fuelling, ‘The Rage Monologues’ is a relentless, uncompromising, and eye-poppingly vitriolic tour de force.

The RAGE Monologues is also available as an ebook, here, and will be available both digitally and in print via all on-line retail channels soon.
We are proud to announce that an expanded edition of Christopher Nosnibor’s Rage Monologues, previously only available as a limited-edition pamphlet at his live performances, will soon be available as a trade paperback and e-book.

While we’ve been away, we’ve been looking at our publishing methods in comparison to other publishers. And we’ve decided we’re doing exactly the right thing, ploughing our own furrow. There’s so much snobbery and elitism in the industry, and we want no part in it. Therefore, our objective remains unchanged: to publish great books that we find exiting, regardless of trends. Our books will continue to look like no-one else’s, instead of following the herd. And we still have no budget.
Still, during our haitus, we’ve discovered that many publishers, partcularly indies, make a big deal of unveiling the cover art to their forthcoming publications. Most of them seem to feature male torsos, ripped and glistening, or hot chicks in underwear, regardless of genre. It’s not out style, but we thought we’d nevertheless make a deal of the grand reveal for not just one, but two, of three titles scheduled for release later this autumn.
Feast your eyes… and watch this space.

Clinicality Press are proud to announce that 1st February 2016 will see the publication of a new pamphlet containing two short stories by Christopher Nosnibor. A project to mark the leap year, Something Must Break / Dream of the Flood will be available to order in print and as an e-book until midnight on 29th February, at which point it will be deleted.
About the publication: ‘’Something Must Break’: A dissonant tale of mental fragmentation and duality. ‘Dream of the Flood’: A meditation on climate change and possibilities of the near future, of human interaction and solipsism. Together, these two pieces represent Christopher Nosnibor’s more literary side as he continues to explore narrative forms and voices.’
Prices and links to follow.
Pretty much all you need to know is here. Be there.
It’s all happening on Monday 8th September at the Woolpack in York. ‘All’ would be the launch of the second Clinical, Brutal anthology. Entry is free and a special, limited, numbered edition of the book will be available for purchase at a discounted price on the night.

See you there!
It’s been four years since the first Clinical, Brutal anthology was unleashed to an unsuspecting public. It would be an overstatement to say the world has never been quite the same since, but it was no small achievement for a zero-budget publisher established barely two years. The fact we’re still here is an achievement in itself, and what better way to reassert the vision of Clinicality Press than with a follow-up that’s even more sharply-focused in its clinicality and its brutality?
Clinical brutal 2, edited by Christopher Nosnibor will hit the virtual shelves this Autumn, and will be preceded by our first official book launch event, which will take place at our spiritual home The Woolpack in York on Monday 8th September 2014. A number of the featured authors will perform. There will be music. There will be copies of the new book available for purchase, before it hits Amazon or anywhere else, and at a discounted launch-night price. Other Clinicality Press titles will also be available.
There’s much work to do, not least of all in terms of formatting, editing and proof-reading, but it’s shaping up to be a truly killer collection.
It has a cover already. It looks like this.
We can also confirm the list of contributing authors. That looks like this: Nicola Burgess / Michael Hann / D M Mitchell / A.D. Hitchin / Karl van Cleave / Dale Prudent / Niall Rasputin / James Wells / A.B. Johnson / Johnny Webster / Christopher Nosnibor / Mistress Rosie / Dyke Van Dick / Andy Rigley / James J. Osman / Pete Miller / Mark Wynn / Díre McCain / Cal Leckie / Michael McAloran / Jock Drummond / Vincent Clasper/ Dave Howden / Lee Kwo / Stuart Bateman
Watch this space and the Clinicality Facebook page for further updates.
Clinicality have been keeping a low profile of late, but that doesn’t mean we’ve not been hatching plans for new publications. The silence of recent months won’t last! Coming in the next couple of months, we have a paperback edition of Karl Van Cleave’s spectacularly brutal collection of short stories, Incisions, Collisions and Aborted Missions.
It will be followed by a collaborative work by Van Cleave and Stuart Bateman, which will be a limited, print-only multimedia headfuck.
Finally, we’re also planning to publish Christopher Nosnibor’s previously unseen novel Exiled In Domestic Life.
Keep watching this space, and meanwhile, keep it brutal.
We make no bones about the fact Clinicality Press is a zero-budget operation run by a couple of guys with regular jobs. Rebellion and revolution isn’t about being bankrolled or even hitting a mass audience (and most ‘viral’ Internet phenomena achieve their status with silent financial backing). We’re all about keeping it real and doing it the hard way: no sell-out. That’s sticking it to the man.
Unfortunately, remaining true to the punk ethic means that sometimes things take longer than we’d like or necessarily anticipate. So when we announced our publishing schedule for the first half of 2013,we knew it was going to be a challenge, and sadly we couldn’t quite manage it. However, we’re not far off.
Christopher Nosnibor’s This Book is Fucking Stupid, set to appear in print in March, hit the shelves on 11th April 2013. It looks great and contains material not in either of the ebook editions.
The print edition of James Wells’ Hack, scheduled for publication in March, is now set to appear in June. After some hellish difficulties with the pagination and formatting, we’re finally there. It will be available to order via Amazon shortly. We will be stocking it in our own shop in due course, just as soon as we can afford to carry new stock again.
We also said we’d be publishing Christopher Nosnibor’s latest work, a collection of essays entitled The Changing Face of Consumerism in April. It’s now good to go, and will be published as an eBook via Amazon on May 31st. The cover will look like this:
The print edition of Incisions, Collisions and Aborted Missions by Karl van Cleave has been put back from May to July / August, but we will be putting out another couple of short stories by different Clinicality authors as standalone free e-books in thee meantime, and we’ve got some more really exciting titles lined up for the Autumn, so keep watching this space.
