Bad Chapbooks

  • Your Guilt Is A Miracle by Ryan Dobran
    This post-poem features a 15" concept-mouth and a removable 36" wooden image-handle. The heavy duty muslin, designed to minimize damage to the noumenon's fragile wings. Dox-bran's little wrists flick out faster than their abundant chandelles and Immelmanns can handle.

  • When I Say I Believe Women... by Emily Critchley
    4.00 incl. P&P.; Like yr "GO" Pringles, but galleried in chitin. It says whether philosophy can handle crying & kissing.

    About Bad Press


    Bad Press publish those things quod vide. We consider submissions from Steve Aylett, Miranda July, Chantal Mouffe and Chris Morris.


    If you have an event to publicise, and this event of yours, it fits somewhere in a kind of UK peace movement / socialist movement / anti- war movement milieu, or some foreign equivalent, let us know well in advance and we'll run a free ad in the Bad Press Serials. For everyone else, rates are pinned to Tatler's (06/06/2006: 1,200.00 p/p).

    You may have them. You're a sweetie.

    Courtly Hatred

    Bad Press is organised by Jow Lindsay, Marianne Morris and Jonathan Stevenson. We have no fixed publication schedule and no very good record, either. Sorry if we never got back to you or completely ripped you off or whatever.
