              Blood Curry By John Irvine is a top-notch collection of is timeless poetry. It is a collection of sophisticated horror. John had been in a number of writer's groups since around 2000, had submitted to many anthologies and magazines dedicated to the horror genre. With moderate suc...cess, but one day after a number of red wines John felt driven to produce a collection of just his own work. John states: Let me say that I really enjoy writing horror and its derivatives, as one can be or do anything the imagination comes up with and suffer no jail time. Be a murderer, an alien, a worm, even a politician doing dastardly things with no fear of retribution. Horror is fun. John began to collect writings from past years, so far unpublished, and wrote a lot of new ones. I had also decided to have the book illustrated and a number of arty friends around the globe helped out. Then he had an epiphany... why not include recipes? Genuine ones. People thought he was crazy, but he sourced dozens of recipes that did fit the genre, all of which had one ingredient in common... that's right, blood!

              Sam is employed by the Department of Conservation (DoC). His two mates are helping out. Their task is to clear out as many feral pigs as they can in the Tongariro National Park, which is located in the North Island of New Zealand. There are three major volcanoes within this park,... so the culling of the pigs has to be done with great care as there are an abundant amount of thermal pools, mud pools and, of course, volcanoes. In the high country of New Zealand, the weather can be very fickle, going from warm to cold within minutes. The three friends draw even closer as they get caught up in a weather pattern with a difference. Mist, sulphur and rain envelop them and propel them back to the start of the New Zealand Wars of 1863. Three modern blokes, with all the paraphernalia of the 21st century, running around in the past, confused, lost, and trying to stay out of harm's way, once they realise where they are. Will they get home? Will they change history? Experience the history of New Zealand in an exciting story of the past and the present.

              Buccaneers, Sonneteers & Spittoons (Hardback)

              By Leon, Gary; Spearing, Michael; Irvine, John

              Buccaneers, Sonneteers and Spittoons: sonnets for the unhinged. This book by John Irvine is very unique. If you want to know what the title means and why spittoons are included you will have to track Gary down somewhere in the America heartland and ply him with Absinthe for an an...swer. The subtitle was the best I could come up with. Mike was asleep at the time and we didn't bother waking him. So: what is it that we have done here? And what sort of publisher has doomed his corporate future by agreeing to publish this clever insanity? Well, although I say it myself what we have achieved here is unique. Utterly so. Most sonnet poets are caught in the gluey soup of daffodils and unrequited love. Not us, dear reader. We're out there flying with the genuine Underworld, painting word pictures about death, sex, goddesses, pixies and angels. Plus other stuff I have no names for. I mean, I don't understand some of the content myself, and I'm the editor. God only knows what the publisher must think. So, my dear unknowable friends, I beg you to do yourselves a favour and buy this delightfully wicked collection. By the year 2025 it will be worth a lot more than today. The poets will all be dead with any luck and the publisher will have become rich and famous as a result of this book. And guess what? Gary, Mike and I are already planning a follow-up collection. How lucky are you all! Not sonnets this time, but any kind of style that happens to infest the brains of any of us while doing our detentions in various institutions at the time. Alea iacta est!

              My original concept was to provide a platform for poets in the speculative genres to showcase their poetry without being littered and lost amongst countless pages of explicit Gothic horror fiction. I think in this we have most certainly succeeded. Many editors of speculative fict...ion treat poetry as an evil necessity. This collection was intended to stand alone, as good poetry of any kind should. It was always going to be a collection of poetry more subtle, more whimsical and more labyrinthine than that which one usually reads in horror/sci fi/fantasy/ speculative magazines and anthologies. Likewise the art.
