Phoenix Ark are delighted to announce that the sequel to The Sight, Fell by David Clement-Davies, will be published digitally this June. Fell is at the very heart of what happened in America to a real writer, and sadly what some readers have described as its ‘beauty’ was in marked contrast to the ensuing battle, and some very unbeautiful behaviour and politics. But that is over, and the founder may be struggling like so many writers to get financial backing, but at least he has complete say back in his own novels. The call for an independent publishing Ombudsman in the UK and America remains, to protect authors and editors too, but in many ways this is a great achievement, and one in the eye against a publishing machine that too often walks over talent, commitment and truly original voices.
