Aaaargh! Press is proud to announce the publication of Playing Possum by Kevin Davey, an unashamedly modernist mix of shocking thriller and reportage. It captures a moment in the history of the north Kent coast that almost happened.
An American poet spends a night in Whitstable’s Duke
of Cumberland Hotel in 1922. He is followed there 90 years later.
The second paperback edition of Moscow Gold? The Soviet Union and the British left by Paul Anderson and Kevin Davey has sold out — so we’re printing more (revised again) for the centenary of the Bolshevik revolution. It will be available from Amazon here for just £9.99.
Apologies to everyone we’ve been unable to supply with the book: it’s my fault, because I’ve been very busy with work. But I caught up with Aaaargh!stuff over the Xmas holiday, and we’re now on track for putting out at least four new titles plus some new editions this year. We’ve even fixed this website’s faulty spam protection…
We had a bit of a hiatus in 2016 – when we weren’t busy working for the Man we were kinda low because of events in the world – but we’re pulling our socks up this year with at least four new titles and new editions of books we’ve already published. Stay tuned for announcements.

I’ve just learnt from my lovely producers, Mukti Jain Campion and Chris Eldon Lee at Culture Wise, that my BBC R4 programme about the history of artists in St Ives, Cornwall, is on again.
BBC Radio 4 Extra is repeating St Ives and Me on Wednesday 21 December at 6.30am, 1.30pm and 8.30pm. And there may even be one at 1.30am the next day if you haven’t had enough of me by then or have rolled in merry from Christmas season fun and frolix and are in need of entertainment. More here.
