Coming Soon


These two books have now been put back until the Autumn. With no book shops open and live launches still impossible, we prefer to hang fire and launch the books properly later in the year. This will be in September with more news later.


IRON Press presents an anthology of thirteen new stories on beings that don't belong: beings from other planets, asylum seekers braving the high seas in small boats and people who are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Comic, poignant and tragic in turn, the writing covers a broad range of subject matters and styles.

The collection is edited by the novelists and Royal Literary Fellows Kitty Fitzgerald and Carol Clewlow.

The stories are written by Rieve Atkinson, Paul Brownsey, Gerald Cole, Ian Inglis, Eileen Jones, Pauline Plummer, Robert Rayner, Noreen Rees, Andrew Sutherland, Sarah Tanburn, Fiona Ritchie Walker, Judith Wall and Gerry Webber.

The Whistling Licence

The Whistling Licence

In a unique publishing partnership, four new short stories by Peter Mortimer are printed alongside their graphic versions from artist Pete Shaw. Haunting and disturbing, the stories include a man arrested for whistling, a mysteriously disappearing cabbage, the life-changing decision of an unborn baby and the secret of the locked room. Pete Shaw brings a distinctive visual style to all four.
