from our anniversary anthology, No Spider Harmed in the Making of this Book

Arachneversary – With Paper for Feet

Our final video for Arachneversary, Jennifer A McGowan talks about her poetry collection With Paper for Feet – covering Shakespeare, myth and fairytales, 16th century witchcraft and much more, with readings.

Arachneversary – Five by Five

Our penultimate video for the Arachneversary. This is quite long, as all five writers contributed both thoughts and/or readings. We enjoyed it so much we’re thinking of doing it regularly. Featuring Joan Taylor-Rowan, Cassandra Passarelli, Katy Darby, Helen Morris and Sarah James.

Five by Five was one of our books celebrating the centenary of some women in the UK finally getting the vote. There’s nothing about voting in it, just women going about their (extr)ordinary lives.

Arachneversary – Happy Ending NOT Guaranteed

Nearing the end of our month of celebrations for the Arachneversary, our eighth anniversary, and a longer than average interview, with Liam Hogan. Liam talks about his collection Happy Ending NOT Guaranteed, and his prodigeous output, and his rejection rate! This was carried out over the phone, so we’ve added some footage from the book trailer and so on to add to the entertainment value, and finish up with a reading by Liam from Mechanical, one of the fantasy stories in HENG, that leans into steampunk, just a little, illustrated by Cherry Potts.
