Here’s a radio interview I gave in Beijing when I did my Anna May Wong Must Die! talk for the Bookworm Literary Festival in China in March. It has gone out on Beijing’s Studio-Plus — listen here. Thanks to web editor Li Shiyu. More on this on my blog.
Anna Chen won the 2014 New Year Farrago Poetry Zoo Award for Best Performance by a London Poet on 30 January – and Charles Shaar Murray won Best Fiction Performance. How splendid! Aaaargh! Press roolz. Audio and video to come with any luck ….
Music legend Wilko Johnson gives the thumbs up to Aaaargh! Press’s first title, Reaching for my Gnu, when he calls Anna Chen’s collection of poetry, “Fuckin’ great”.
That’s some endorsement coming from our cultural hero. Love you, man.
Recorded Tuesday 22 January 2013 at Wilko’s house in Southend.

We’re kicking off with two brand new eBooks on Kindle and electronic readers, and a paperback.
Poet, performer and broadcaster Anna Chen had her first poems published when she was 14, in an anthology from Jonathan Cape. Her first poetry collection, the “brilliant and dangerous” Reaching for my Gnu, is fresh out as both an international eBook and a gorgeous glossy paperback with additional photos.
Legendary author and music journalist Charles Shaar Murray, named as “the rock journalists’ rock journalist” by Q magazine, has collected 25 of his coruscatingly witty Guitarist magazine columns in The Guitar Geek Dossier, available as an eBook.
Reaching for my Gnu and The Guitar Geek Dossier eBooks are on sale through Amazon for the knock-down introductory price of only £1.99 each.
