Our next two books will be published on 1 May, and both are well worth getting excited about!
We've already been making a bit of a fuss about A PRIDE OF POPPIES, an anthology of modern GLBTQI fiction of the Great War. We hope that our readers will welcome this particular project, as all proceeds will be donated to the charity The Royal British Legion. Three of the ten authors involved are Manifold Press stalwarts, and we are delighted that their contributions are joined by those of seven authors new to the Press.
Our second offering follows on from last year's DANCE OF STONE, with Jay Lewis Taylor bringing us another vivid historical with THE PEACOCK'S EYE. This time we visit the last tumultuous years of Queen Elizabeth's reign, and we come to know and love the actor Philip Standage just as surely as we did Hugh mason. Jay deftly combines thorough research with a cracking good yarn, with the whole brought to life by his wonderful range of characters.
Meanwhile, tickets are still available for the new one-day event that the Press is hosting: Queer Company, in Oxford on Saturday 9 May. Everyone who loves this genre as much as we do is very welcome to join us! You can find the event website, including registration details, at manifoldevents.co.uk.
The final piece of the programming puzzle is just falling into place now, so we'll have some more details available very soon!
