First of all, we would like to announce that we have a winner for the Orphan Palace prize draw, and that winner is Dave Brzeski, who will soon be receiving in the post a customised copy of Joseph S. Pulver, Sr.’s The Orphan Palace with free bookmark and CDs with selected tracks from the novel’s ’soundtrack’. Bad luck to those who entered this time but did not win. Remember to be eligible for future prize draws, please sign up to our mailing list using the free update widget next to our Twitter feed on the home page.

In further news, and on the subject of The Orphan Palace, we are very pleased to announce that Issue #117 of Rue Morgue magazine contains as spotlight feature on Chômu Press, which includes a look at The Orphan Palace and an interview with Quentin S. Crisp. It also has a very fetching image of Lon Chaney’s Phantom of the Opera on the cover.
Last and not least, something calling itself the ‘Chomu Radio Archive’ (thanks to Joe Campbell) has uploaded a long, in-depth, audio interview with Chômu writer John Elliott. John Elliott talks to Quentin S. Crisp about Philip K. Dick, Lovecraft, Oulipo, John Calder, Queneau, Georges Perec, and many other things.
