Far Fetched Books was launched in March 2012 to e-publish the early works of the Father of Far Fetched Fiction himself, Mr Robert Rankin. The imprint now features 23 e-books (available for your Kindle via amazon.com) from his earliest masterwork The Antipope and the subsequent Brentford Series, through the ground-breaking (and misleadingly numerated) Armageddon Quartet, The Cornelius Murphy Trilogy and The Completely Barking Mad Trilogy, also encompassing several wonderful standalone novels such as Snuff Fiction, Nostradamus Ate My Hamster and The Fandom of the Operator. Links to all of these can be found on the “Books” page.
In September, Far Fetched Books published Robert’s autobiography: I, Robert. We have been absolutely delighted by the readers’ enthusiastic responses to date and have been very busy fulfilling orders. We still have copies left which we will be selling at all forthcoming events throughout 2016. The book can also be purchased online from our shopify site.
I, Robert chronicles Robert’s life from his childhood in Ealing, his adventures at art school and hilarious anecdotes and moving moments from his 35-year career in publishing. It is lavishly illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photos and original artworks, beautifully designed by comix legend Dez Skinn who also conceived and created the full colour glossy dust jacket. This is a beautiful book which would make a lovely addition to any Rankin collection.
And here is a nice interview with Robert at the Sci Fi Weekender 2013
