Tim Hopkins of The Half Pint Press has been kind enough to print up and publish ‘Letterpress [n]’, one of my Missing letters stories. Having faced down the many challenges involved in realising his boxed version of The book of disquiet, typically Tim gave himself a fresh conundrum to solve, one requiring some serious letterpress jiggery-pokery in order to achieve the finished result:
You can find further details and photos here. If you’re interested in getting hold of a copy, let me know via the First contact page, and I’ll pass on the relevant information just as soon as I have it from Tim.
To celebrate its appearance in print, and also The Half Pint Press publication of Peter Miller’s short story ‘Dusty Springfield’, a launch party is being held at the bookartbookshop on Thursday 12th October 2017. Do come along if you’re in London, as it will be a chance – rare as hen’s teeth – to hear me read…

Congratulations, Dan! Looks like a very fine edition indeed and I look forward to hopefully acquiring a copy before it inevitably sells out. Regrettably I will not be in London on the day of your reading, though. Maybe someone will capture it on video.

Thanks, Sean. I’m reserving you a copy – the least I can do for someone who read all the stories as they appeared! Will be in touch by email shortly to check on your address.
