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.

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.
