Hello Ghouls and Boils,
Today I have some intriguing news to share. Andrew Hook has released a new, and truly strange piece of metafiction. The book is due out on the 8th of this month – and it has certainly piqued my curiosity. If you are in the UK you should try to stop by and see Mr. Hook at his book signing in Norwich. Below is the information about this truly unique story, perhaps we’ll be able to review it here. Enjoy, my fiends!

Atomic Fez Publishing is delighted to make available the never-been-revealed, true story of the legendary Ponthe Oldenguine! Kept from the knowledge of the public for decades, now you can finally know what really happened in the halls of the BBC’s Broadcasting House in the late 1960s and early-1970s!
Written with loving care and attention to details by noted British author Andrew Hook from notes left on his doorstep one day by a mysterious and smelly individual (who shouted “PORCU–PIIIIINE” through the letter-box before running away giggling), Ponthe Oldenguine is the man you’ve been denied any information about. So secret was Mr. Oldenguine’s existence, you may not even be aware how badly you’ve wanted to know everything about him! But now, the story can be told and you can read it for yourself.
Here’s something about the book itself:
If you want a picture of the future, Trunka,
imagine a boot stamping on a cake?.?.?. forever.
Imagine just how glorious that would be.
Ponthe Oldenguine is one part fictional biography of a former television impresario who claims he’s been hounded out of media history, and one part biography of the journalist commissioned to write his story. Where the tales merge, there is madness.
Trade Paperback copies of Ponthe Oldenguine are just $16.99 (Canada/USA) or £9.99 (UK/Others), with pre-orders being taken now. The electronic book (just $9.99 Canadian) will made available on the title’s Official Publishing Date of October 8th 2010.
