TELOS WINS SILVER
We're absolutely delighted to announce that Telos Publishing scooped the Silver Award in the Performing Arts category at ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Awards, announced at BookExpo America in New York last week. The winning title was Axelle Carolyn's It Lives Again!, an analysis of the modern horror film.
ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year Awards were established to bring increased attention to librarians and booksellers of the literary and graphic achievements of independent publishers and their authors. ForeWord is the only review trade journal devoted exclusively to books from independent houses.
Telos Publishing's David J Howe commented on the award, saying, 'We're delighted that Axelle Carolyn's book was considered worthy by the judges of this award. We tried to ensure that textually and visually it presented the best overview of the subject that it could, and it's great that all the hard work has been recognised in this way.'
ForeWord’s founder and publisher, Victoria Sutherland, spoke at the awards ceremony: 'This year more than ever before, we heard from the judges how great the finalist books were and how difficult it was to make their decisions,' she said. 'Despite this tough economy, independent publishers are producing some of the best books out there, and we are happy to honour them today.'
The award process brings readers, librarians, and booksellers together to select their top categories as well as choose the winning titles. Their decisions are based on editorial excellence, professional production, originality of the narrative, author credentials relative to the book, and the value the book adds to its genre.
ForeWord named 201 Book of the Year Award winners in 60 categories. These books, representing the best independently published works from 2009, were selected by a panel of librarian and bookseller judges.

It's always pleasing when sales are booming, but this brings its own challenges. We have just sold out of the signed copies of Simon Clark's brilliant horror novella Humpty's Bones, and so thanks to everyone who has supported this great title. We will be reprinting, but the new print run will be unsigned.
We are also sold out again of the new guide to Space: 1999, Destination: Moonbase Alpha, and unfortunately the reprint will need to have its price increased to £15.99 to cover an increase in printing costs as well as to set the price point to something more appropriate given the size of the title. Long-time Telos customers will know that we always try and honour the prices originally set for our books, but on this one, we were caught out a little by the eventual size of the book, and so the original £12.99 price was only just enough to cover the costs.
As soon as we have copies of both books back in stock again, then I'll add a note here.
While we're talking about signed copies, we have available a very limited number of copies of Axelle Carolyn's fabulous guide to modern horror films, It Lives Again!, signed by both Axelle, and by top film director Neil Marshall, who provided the foreword for the book. These were originally signed at a Borders event in London, but Borders went bancrupt shortly afterwards (hopefully nothing to do with us!), and we were lucky to be able to retrieve most of the copies from them. Therefore anyone ordering It Lives Again! direct from Telos will receive, completely free of charge, these special signed editions while we have copies available.
