This month, we launch our second ebook reissue in the fabulously anarchic Borrible trilogy, The Borribles Go for Broke (free extract of The Borribles Go for Broke here). You can see the stunning cover below, designed by our Jo Thompson, who used the Daniel Baur's (K5 Media Group) eye-catching title font.
These dark London tales start with The Borribles and can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. We follow the child-like Borrible protagonists as they go on brave quests across their city to preserve their way of life. These ebook reissues also contain some great extra material, such as maps, character sketches and archive material. Praised by China Miéville (who wrote a heartfelt introduction to the series), Neil Gaiman and Cory Doctorow, the series has a huge number of fans. If you haven't dipped in already, why not join the enthusiasm!
You can find out more about Book One, The Borribles, in our blog post here. And do check out The Borrible trilogy on Facebook as they are putting up all kinds of interesting archive material on the series. See below for two great reviews from 1977 and 1978
