"Merry-Go-Round and Other Words is the definitive collection of work by the South Wales poet and writer Bryn Fortey. The book includes a warm introduction by Johnny Mains plus an afterword by Bryn, in which he discusses some of the stories included in the book. We are certain you will all want a copy of this collection gracing your shelves.
"We shall also have copies of Rod Rees’s book Invent-10n in both paperback and hard-cover, limited editions! If you missed the launch last December now is your chance to race down to Birmingham and grab a copy.
"In preparing for the book fair we “unearthed” a few copies of the late Joel Lane-edited anthology, Beneath the Ground. We’re pretty sure that these are all the remaining copies in Alchemy Towers. We also came across a handful of Shadows of Light and Dark by award-winning poet Jo Fletcher. This collection of poems includes an introduction by Neil Gaiman plus art and photography by Les Edwards and Seamus Ryan. The book is signed and numbered by all contributors (including the book’s designer Michael Marshall Smith).
Other Alchemy Press titles available include Astrologica: Stories of the Zodiac, The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes (volumes 1 and 2), The Alchemy Press Book of Urban Mythic and Doors to Elsewhere."
