Raven’s Head Press is launched

dtp_4078680_USER_CONTENT_5_D5R3J7M0JJMXGS8EHYK1Great news reaches us at Fedora – the redoubtable John F Norris of Pretty Sinister Books and Michael Hudson have launched Raven’s Head Press, a new imprint devoted to weird and wonderful crime and adventure fiction. Their motto is ‘Reviving Pulp Fiction for a new Generation of Readers’ and I for one couldn’t be more excited.

They have published their first book, The Starkenden Quest (a review to appear here at Fedora very soon), available though Amazon, with more to come on paper and as e-publications. For updates, visit their website: http://ravensheadpress.com/

    Sergio, this is good news and it is great that you are publicizing this. I am eager to see what authors they cover as they publish more books.

  2. Margot Kinberg says:

    Thanks so much for sharing, Sergio! This is great news. 🙂

  3. Kelly says:

    It’s always exciting news when cool old stuff gets re-released. I look forward to the review.

    Ah shucks! Thanks for the plug, Sergio. Wait till you see the second book! It’s even more fantastic than this one. I’ll be reviewing that one in the coming months but it will take about six months for production to get it out to you lovely readers. It’s just the two of us slowly cranking these out. And there are lots and lots of emails going out to acquire rights & permissions. Oh, the waiting for those replies…

    Count me in as another who is excited to see the arrival of a publisher committed to putting this kind of genre fiction out there.

  6. Thank you for sharing! Very excited at this news, and the first book sounds excellent.

  7. Maja says:

    A lot of similarities to Hard Case Crime books—website design, text, etc. Mind you, that’s not a bad thing—I’m a huge HCC fan. Thanks for the info, Sergio!

    • My pleasure Maja – these ones are going to be much more whodunits rather than thrillers or often dipping in the realm of weird adventure I suspect – will review the first one as soon as it arives!

      • Maja says:

        Looking forward to reading your review! As for the similarities, I guess I was thinking more about the similarity in appearance of the two websites (e.g. compare the text on their respective “Contact” pages)…..Are the two companies related to each other?

  8. The last thing I want is more vintage books! I was quite contented reading a few books all by myself and not writing about them before I entered the tentacled world of blogs. Too late… Thanks for this bit of news, Sergio. John always has some fascinating books up his sleeve.

    • I know, too little time, too many books – how great os that? And thank goodness for john, a man who truly knows what he’s talking about – not enough those about these days!
