Eight years on from his last ‘29 Days of February’ project, Christopher Nosnibor is celebrating the leap year with a limited-run publication, and Clinicality Press are proud to be involved.

As Chris writes in his blog, ‘With the 29 Days of February concept, the number of units in circulation is determined by the market, meaning that while it can’t ‘sell out’ in the first three days, if only six copies sell in the 29 days the product is available, then only six copies will exist – ever.’

This year’s ‘29 Days’ project will be published as a back-to-back A5 saddle-stitched pamphlet priced at £3.50 and an ebook priced at $1.99. We have our reasons for using different outlets for the two formats, but links to both are at the bottom of this post.

Something Must Break / Dream of the Flood will be available from midnight GMT. At Midnight on 29th February, Something Must Break / Before the Flood will be deleted and will not be republished.

The blurb:

‘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.

Karl van Cleave’s biography perhaps speaks for itself:

Swedish-born Karl van Cleave has lived and worked in many cities around Europe, in jobs ranging from police work to journalism. He is fascinated by emerging technologies, developing methods of communication, telepathy, pornography, philosophy, avant-gardism and the Marquis de Sade. His work is featured in ‘Clinical, Brutal… An Anthology of Writing With Guts’ (Clinicality Press 2010). He currently lives at home in London with his mother’s mutilated corpse.

His first solo collection of fiction, entitled Incisions, Collisions and Aborted Missions is everything you would expect from such a writer when paired with a publisher like this one: clinical, brutal and cutting edge.

Incisions, Collisions and Aborted Missions is published today (28 February 2013) exclusively on Amazon Kindle. Other platform editions will follow later in the year.

With the six stories contained in ‘Incisions, Collisions and Aborted Missions’, Karl van Cleave proves himself to be a leading exponent of clinical brutality. Rendering the horrors of the every day in agonising, medical detail, van Cleave cuts through literary niceties to expose the core – and the gore – of the human condition. It isn’t pretty, but it is real. Very real.

Clinicality Press are elated to announce that Karl van Cleave’s collection of short stories, entitled Incisions, Collisions and Aborted Missions will be published as an e-book via Amazon Kindle and Smashwords on 28th February 2012.

Van Cleave made his Clinicality debut in the Clinical, Brutal… anthology in 2012 and has since featured in the Clinicality blogzine. Incisions… contains 6 short and brutal stories and is Karl’s premiere solo publication. Written in blood with no detail too unpleasant, Karl’s writing is not for those with a delicate disposition.

The six stories are as follows:

Blades
Broken Wings
Screw I
Screw II
Trauma
Appendix

We’re giving away ‘Blades’ as a free taster over at Smashwords.

Incisions Cover copy

Incisions, Collisions and Aborted Missions will be priced at £3.99 on Amazon.co.uk and (approximately) comparatively on international sites. Links to follow: watch this space.

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.
