Is an update from the dark heart of the operations centre of the Burning Eye adventure. We feel we have a duty to bring to your attention the following important information:
1. News from The General:
Keep up with the left honourable Salena Godden as she continues her mission to perform EVERYWHERE there is to perform. Full info here at Waiting for Godden. Salena’s Burning Eye book Fishing in the Aftermath – Poems 1994-2014 is available here here here from the Burning Eye Book Store which regular readers will understand is a figment of our collective imaginations next to a cactus and a tramp. Although it occurs to us that if that was a compulsory either/or “lick it” my money would be on the tramp. (If this means nothing to you – you need to get the book my friend. It has the answer.)
You can also read an interview with Salena here courtesy of The Skinny.
Salena’s memoir Springfield Road is out any day now from Unbound. More info here.
2. POOR QUEEN
Everyone is feeling sorry for old Liz II – The Sequel. My people north of the border look like they might just give a mighty eff you the London Establishment so some are calling her the Last Queen of Scotland. Ho ho. But look my friends stop feeling sorry for one of the richest people on the planet and direct your energies in the direction of THIS Poor Queen by Mab Jones. The only book we have published that is as rude as Salena Godden’s. There might be a trend here. Be warned. Also listen to Mab’s performance here in collaboration with Little Eris for a taste of what to expect:
Poor Queen is also available from from The Burning Eye Bookstore. Huzzah we hear you cry.
3. BACK TO SCHOOL ESSENTIALS
It is that time of year that the marauding hordes return to the hallowed halls of learning. Make sure your little darlings have this essential book to ensure the navigate their way to the very best grades that are mathematically possible without bribing the examination authority: APPLIED MATHEMATICS by Dan Simpson. (Warning: May contain POETRY and not algebra.)
Applied Mathematics is ALSO available from… yes you guessed it Amazon. No no no we meant to say THE BURNING EYE BOOK STORE!
More to follow. Eight in fact. Yes EIGHT more incendiary devices disguised as books from Burning Eye and not a mainstream zzzzz fest amongst them. Stay tuned.
