BAD MACHINERY VOLUME 1 OUTSIDE N. AMERICA
I've had a number of messages from people struggling to get the Bad Machinery book outside the USA, particularly in the UK and Australia. Here's what to do:
1. If you have a local comic shop, they can order it for you if it's not in stock. Just ask! It's in the system.
2. In the UK? Amazon.co.uk has it. If you use this link
, I get a little bit of extra cash that way. Hate Amazon's tax-dodging ways? Use Foyles
3. In Australia? Kings Comics
has it. New Zealand's Mighty Ape
can get it for you too.
I'm afraid you can only get the hardcover direct from Topatoco
or direct from Oni Press. If you want a personalised book, I will be selling adhesive personalised bookplates from the beginning of May.

BAD MACHINERY VOLUME 1 IS AVAILABLE NOW!
I'm very proud to announce that the first Bad Machinery book, The Case Of The Team Spirit, is now available from Topatoco
! Published by Oni Press, it contains the first Bad Machinery case (and the pre-amble). Running to about 140 pages, it features many new pages of story and loads of extra material, including an in-depth guide to the fake history of English football that I can only describe as "dense", "nutty" and "extremely time-consuming to write".
The book is available in standard paperback
and strictly limited hardback
editions. Unlike my Scary Go Round collections, it is not a bijou volume. It's HUGE - 9 x 12 inches - and beautifully designed.
As I've said before, these stories were meant to be read as books, and I'm grateful to Oni for giving me the chance to put them out in such lavish fashion. I hope to collect all the stories this way and get them to the widest audience possible - and needless to say, I can't do that without your help. Recommendation to friends, a Goodreads review
, a mention anywhere that you can tell someone that something pretty reasonable is going on here.
A NOTE FOR PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE US/CANADA:
The book is also available from your local comic shop. You can just walk in, give them some money, and walk right out of there completely satisfied. Give it a go! What's to lose? Good comic shops in England: Page 45 (Nottingham), Gosh!, Orbital (London), Dave's (Brighton), Travelling Man (Leeds, York, Manchester, Newcastle). But wherever you go - comic shop or normal bookshop, if they don't have it, they can get it for you.
