Coming soon: Crap Dad

Coming soon: Crap Dad by SJ Bradley.

A single short story chapbook, typeset and letterpress printed by Phil Treble (@muttonsandnuts) with centrefold illustration by Helen Entwistle (@memohelen).

I've only seen the cover of this so far, and it looks amazing. I'm indebted to my co-conspirators Helen & Phil for agreeing to collaborate with me on this book. It should be out by mid-November in a limited edition of 75 (soft cover) or 15 (hard cover).

If you'd like to get one, you can contact me on s.j.bradley [at] hotmail [dot] com.

Tony 'The Great' Boltini

I had a fabulous night at The Red Shed Readings on Thursday this week - many thanks to hosts John Irving Clark and Jimmy Andrex for organising it.

Sharing the stage with me that night was Lancashire born poet Tony 'The Great' Boltini. I've read alongside Tony a couple of times now, and the man's something of a legend around these parts. Yet Tony has never published a collection. Perhaps it's partly for that reason that he isn't more well-known. Here are a couple of videos of him in action from The Red Shed this week.
