To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Obverse Books in the autumn of 2019, we are proud to present a sextet of special novellas, covering some of the most popular of our fictional universes. 

From the immortal Seaton Begg to the ageless masked wrestler Senor 105, via the time travelling Manleigh Halt Irregulars and the time terrorism of Faction Hollywood, all the way to trans-temporal adventuress Iris Wildthyme and the apparently eternal City of the Saved, six returning authors have crafted six tales of celebration…

The books will be released over the last six months of 2019, in the following order:

THE RISE & FALL OF SEÑOR 105 By Blair Bidmead

The past has caught up with Señor 105 and is headed on a collision course with the future. As the secret history of the solar system is revealed, the shocking truth may be too much for even him to bear…

CLOSING THE CASEBOOK By Nick Wallace

It’s four decades since the Casebook of the Manleigh Halt Irregulars was finally closed. In the backwaters of a foreign land, Clarissa Miller finds that a summons from Isiah Dogberry cannot be ignored nor the past forgotten forever.

THE MYSTIC MENAGERIE OF IRIS WILDTHYME By Nick Campbell

When a fabulous beast is glimpsed in the British Museum, it’s just the start of an extraordinary adventure for the immortal Iris Wildthyme. The Clock-Watchers are on the rise, and meanwhile an enemy awaits Iris – under the hill…

THE IMMORTAL SEATON BEGG  By Simon Bucher-Jones

A femme fatale with a mysterious six fingered gloved hand, a seemingly cursed and missing Egyptian mummy, and a monstrous killer automaton are among the threats faced by Seaton Begg.

HYPONORMALISATION: A FACTION HOLLYWOOD PRODUCTION  by Jonathan Dennis

War Eternal, on Earth as it is in Heaven, but when the approval ratings for the war are down, who can the military industrial complex turn to?

VANISHING TALES OF THE CITY  By Kara Dennison

A court with no ruler.  A diary with no author.  A party at which the guest of honour may never have existed.  Six new stories explore mysterious disappearances from the City of the Saved… and the familiar faces who step in to take their places.

A subscription to the series guarantees a copy at a discounted rate of £10 per book on the RRP of £13.49, with each book sent out as it is published.
