I'm pleased to announce the official launch of the publishing company that intends to issue my novel Twisthorn Bellow in September...
Atomic Fez was set up by the Canadian fellow Ian Alexander Martin, former boss of Humdrumming Ltd, publishers of my Less Lonely Planet collection (aptly enough, Atomic Fez also plan to being out a second edition of that volume, an expanded version, sometime next year).
Twisthorn Bellow is a sort of rival to Hellboy, but he's much more incompetent than that good red demon. Twisthorn is a golem who falls into a vat of nitroglycerin before he has set, turning him into a living stick of dynamite! His adventures among the supernatural creatures of the world often drive his potter potty! The novel is a black comedy satire in which I tried to be as inventive as possible... Apart from Hellboy my main inspiration came from the work of Philip Josť Farmer.
