eMergent Publishing Books Now in Store

The wonderful folks at eMergent Publishing have sent us a range of new stock this week. These books are independently published here in Australia and look absolutely amazing.

I would like to thank Jodi Cleghorn and her staff for making this endeavour possible. I am a firm believer that independent authors and publishers should be given as much exposure as possible. I am looking forward to strengthening our ties with eMergent Publishing in the near future.

EIGHTY NINE

Editor: Jodi Cleghorn

Publisher: Literary Mix Tapes, 2011

ISBN: 978-0-9871126-6-8

1989: a cusp between decades.

The year the Berlin Wall came down and Voyager went up. Ted Bundy and Emperor Hirohito died. The birth of the first Bush administration and computer virus.

In San Francisco and Newcastle the ground shook, in Chernobyl it melted. Tiananmen Square rocked the world and Tank Man imprinted on the international consciousness. Communism and Thatcherism began their decline, Islamic fundamentalism its rise.

It was the year Batman burst onto the big screen, we went back to the future (again) Indiana Jones made it a trifecta at the box office and Michael Damian told us to rock on.

Based on a play list of 26 songs released in 1989 , Eighty Nine re-imagines the social, political, cultural and personal experiences at the end of the decade which gave the world mullets, crimped hair, neon-coloured clothing, acid-wash denim, keytars, the walkman, Live Aid, the first compact disc and MTV.

NOTHING BUT FLOWERS 

Editor: Jodi Cleghorn

Publisher: Literary Mix Tapes

ISBN: 978-0-9807446-7-5 (eBook)

ISBN: 978-0-9807446-1-3 (paperback)

In a devastated world, a voice calls out through the darkness of space, a young woman embraces Darwin, a man lays flowers in a shattered doorway, a two-dimensional wedding feast awaits guests, a Dodge Challenger roars down the deserted highway

…and that’s just the beginning.

Inspired by the Talking Heads’ song of the same name, Nothing but Flowers explores the complexities and challenges of love in a post-apocalyptic landscape; from a take-away coffee mug to a gun to the head, a fortune cookie to a guitar, the open road and beyond. Poignant, funny, horrifying and sensual, this collection of short fiction leaves an indelible mark on ideas of what it means to love and be loved.

All profits from the sale of this anthology go to The Grantham Flood Support Fund.

FROM DARK PLACES – E.J. NEWMAN

Publisher: eMergent Publishing

ISBN-13: 978-0980744651 (Paperback)

Abby finds a creative solution to her father’s problems. Ben makes a pact with the Devil for a new Mum. Katie is pursued by unrelenting voices. John just found his colleague’s hand in a strange girl’s lap. Jarvis is falling apart on his wedding day. Rosalind comes face-to-face with her number one fan. And that is just the beginning.

E.J. Newman’s debut anthology is a dark and twisting journey across the urban landscape, mining the rich seam of human frailties with insight and humour. The stories traverse the magical and the mundane, where supernatural beings are indistinguishable from their mortal counterparts in their complexity and complicity.
