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.

Just because we’ve not posted any new fiction or news on here recently doesn’t mean there’s nothing happening at Clinicality Press. We’ve got a few things in the pipeline for 2013, including a first print edition of Christopher Nosnibor’s latest novel, This Book is Fucking Stupid, and other which we’ll announce in due course.
Meanwhile, being clinical, brutal and cutting edge, we’re considering new avenues for getting Clinicality out there. Because we think we’re pretty rock ‘n’ roll and espouse the punk ethos in a publishing context, and some of our covers are a groove sensation, we thought, hey, why not Clinicality T-shirts?
So far, we’ve come up with a Clinical, Brutal design based on our ethos-defining anthology and a This Book is Fucking Stupid themed design.
This T-Shirt is Fucking Stupid
So, who wants one?
We publish books. Brilliant books. However, we are a zero-budget publishing house, and putting books out and promoting them is costly and time-consuming, and we receive more brilliant submissions than we can ever publish in print. So, to address this, we shall shortly be using this blog space to publish some of the great work we receive but can’t, for one reason or another (usually financial) put out as books or pamphlets or include in collections.
In time, this blog will also be integrated into the Clinicality Press website, but in the meantime, skip over to http://clinicalitypress for more… and watch this space!
