Coming soon – two new novels and more!

We’re going to have a busy, busy year and we’re starting off with two new novels from a pair of incredible authors – Ash Dogs by Justin Nicholes and The Golden Calf by Henry Baum. Both are very much worth your time – so please check them out, and better yet, pre-order them!

We’ve also got some other great stuff in the works – a sequel to our successful Invision art book, other novels, some childrens’ books, and more! If you’re in Portland, we’re having an Invision 2 release party on July 31st at The Goodfoot featuring art work from both books!

A special note about pre-orders for these two novels: any pre-order with a contribution of $10 or more will be signed and personalized by the author. Any pre-order placed previous to this notice will automatically qualify regardless of contribution amount. As our authors live far from us (one is currently residing in China!) this pre-order period may very well be the only time we can offer signed copies of these novels. So please consider supporting the authors and the press!

Ash Dogs by Justin Nicholes

  • Binding: Perfect Bound
  • Dimensions: 5.5” × 8.5”
  • Length: 180 pages

Marcus Green has just been discharged after a tour of duty in Iraq. Wounded and disfigured, Marcus returns to a life he barely recognizes… and that barely recognizes him. Stricken by guilt and self-doubt, and spurred on by deep-rooted restlessness, Marcus decides he must embark on a journey to reclaim that part of himself which he has lost. As he explores his past he reconnects with a forgotten half-brother in Mexico and a former hometown love, but he must also come to grips with his accidental family — other wounded veterans and the Iraqis he was supposed to protect.

20% of the profits from Ash Dogs will be donated to the Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust.

Praise for Ash Dogs!

“Justin Nicholes’ impressive debut offers us a psychologically nuanced, spare and cinematic look at the way families and strangers cleave together in times of great crisis. The odd arrangement of family, as important a theme as ever here, is investigated alternately with great tenderness and a hundred-yard stare. The effect is often electric. This is compelling work by a young writer to watch.”
-Darren DeFrain, author of The Salt Palace (New Issues Press)

The Golden Calf by Henry Baum

  • Binding: Perfect Bound
  • Dimensions: 5.5” × 8.5”
  • Length: 180 pages
  • ISBN: 0977605159
  • Release Date: June 15, 2008


Ray Tompkins is the kind of person you never get to know. He’s the security guard, the factory worker, the man working the midnight shift. Nobody really understands Ray – not his coworkers, not his family, and certainly not the women in his life. There is a rage building inside Ray Tompkins and Los Angeles is the fuel – the sick obsession with celebrity mixed with the vacuousness of everyday life. Against this backdrop, Ray Tompkins finds a way to vent his anger. He, too, will be known…

Praise for The Golden Calf!

“This pacy, tightly written novel is like ‘Taxi Driver’ meets Charles Bukowski’s Factotum.”

“An amusing, persuasive insight into obsession, stalking and the disintegration of sanity. Highly recommended to anyone with a bitter hatred of Tom Cruise and Hollywood stars in general.”

“A marvel of pace and comic timing….Much of Baum’s narrative bears a similarity to Dostoevsky’s Notes from the Underground.”
-Daily Telegraph

“With a superb narrative control, Baum paints a portrait of male dysfunction set to explode.”
-The List

“Ray is nearly as good a portrait of post-collegiate angst as has been painted so far.”
-New York Press

“Explores the hazy junction where the teeth of the daily grind sink into the day-dreamt certainties of life’s true bell-head sounds.”
-Lee Ranaldo, member of Sonic Youth
