SAVAGE COMPANY, my new novella
Available on Kindle from September 24 2014
I’ve always loved novellas. Some of the best writers of the Twentieth Century wrote some of their best material in novella form. D H Lawrence was a master. Then, of course, there’s Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice. But come the Millennium, you couldn’t publish them except in collections, which leaves you with a book of long short stories, which rather defeats the object. Then along came Amazon Kindle, Nook and other e-book publishers. Now you can make your story just as long as it needs to be. No padding, no waffle. Well, anyway, this is my first attempt. Three years of refinement and polishing. It costs 75p – so, really, what have either of us got to lose?
