David Barnett will publish popCult! With UK small publisher Pendragon Press

Pendragon Press who published our favorite author Mark C. Newton first novel The Reef has acquired a novel from the very promising UK author David Barnett.

Earlier this year the author David Barnett had a Guardian post on: "Science fiction: the genre that dare not speak its name" which was quite well received in the sff online community and we are very happy to announce his new sf novel "popCult!" here.

More from John Jarrold:

PRESS RELEASE – DAVID BARNETT NOVEL SOLD TO PENDRAGON

John Jarrold has sold limited-edition rights in popCULT!, a novel by UK author David Barnett, to Chris Teague at Welsh publisher Pendragon Press. David is the Assistant Editor of the Bradford Telegraph and Argus newspaper, and has had two earlier novels published by Immanion Press, Hinterland and Angelglass. He also writes regular blogs for the Guardian books website.

popCULT! is a contemporary SF caper in which a struggling writer is drawn into the machinations of a motley group of underground art prankster rebels who harbour a strange and terrible secret beneath the streets of London.

David said, 'popCULT! is one of my favourite works and I'm delighted that a press with the reputation of Pendragon has taken it on.'

'David is both prolific and incredibly inventive,' said John Jarrold. 'I'm expecting great things of him as his career progresses!'

Contact John Jarrold by e-mail: j.jarrold@btinternet.com or phone: 01522 510544 for further details.

Note from Liviu: I loved Mr. Barnett's Guardian post when it made its way through the online sff community a while ago and of his two earlier novels "Angelglass" looks very interesting for me and I am looking into getting a copy.
