Clovenhoof by Heide Goody and Iain Grant
Have some sympathy for the devil…
Charged with gross incompetence, Satan is fired from his job as Prince of Hell and exiled to that most terrible of places: English suburbia. Forced to live as human under the name of Jeremy Clovenhoof, the dark lord not only has to contend with the fact that no one recognises him or gives him the credit he deserves but also has to put up with the bookish wargamer next door and the voracious man-eater upstairs.
Heaven, Hell and the city of Birmingham collide in a story that features murder, heavy metal, cannibalism, armed robbers, devious old ladies, Satanists who live with their mums, gentlemen of limited stature, dead vicars, petty archangels, flamethrowers, sex dolls, a blood-soaked school assembly and way too much alcohol.
Clovenhoof is outrageous and irreverent (and laugh out loud funny!) but it is also filled with huge warmth and humanity. Written by first-time collaborators Heide Goody and Iain Grant, Clovenhoof will have you rooting for the bad guy like never before.
We are very pleased to announce we will be publishing Heide and Iain’s Satan-in-suburbia comic fantasy in September 2012. We will be posting details and images as they become available.
We will be launching their first collaborative novel at this year’s Birmingham Artfest. Heide and Iain will (hopefully) be doing some workshops and readings at the Artsfest before the launch party at the Old Royal in Birmingham at 7:30pm on 8th September 2012.
