Welcome, Galley Beggar

Many of you will remember Sam Jordison who supplied some fine reviews of mainstream novels that would appeal to SF&F fans for Salon Futura. Well Sam and a couple of his friends have set up a small publishing house called Galley Beggar Press. The books they publish will probably be right on the edge of what can be classed as fantastical, but like the books he reviewed for me they will definitely be of interest. Their first book, The White Goddess: An Encounter by Simon Gough is a fictionalised memoir by a man who knew Robert Graves very well. The blurb makes it sound a little like John Fowles’ The Magus to me, though with Graves involved the magic will be very different. Sam tells me that their next book will be a collection of short stories featuring Elvis doing things that the real Elvis certainly did not do. It all sounds very interesting.
