Ex Occidente deluxe

With Lord Bassington-Bassington's newfound passion for small press publishers, His Lordship was elated when news of Ex Occidente Press reached his velvety, drooping ears. Not only does this publisher have almost exactly the same name as Lord Bassington-Bassington's favourite record label, it also specializes in weird fiction. Not to mention that it produces books to a standard that must be seen to be believed.

Lord Bassington-Bassington has so far only been able to acquire one of Ex Occidente's releases, The Man Who Collected Machen and Other Stories by Mark Samuels, which comes highly recommended to anyone with a taste for the weird and decadent. The theme was particularily fascinating because His Lordship was able to visit Arthur Machen's birthplace this summer.

Oh, and in case you're wary of sending money off to Romania, calm your qualms. His Lordship has rarely experienced service as efficient and polite as that provided by Ex Occidente.


  1. Mmmm... they look delicious.

    Particularly this one:

  2. It's hard to recommend this publisher enough. I'm planning to get my paws on more of their releases, but with the price of dog food these days, I have to start saving money somewhere. Being a penniless Lord isn't all it's cracked up to be, I'm afraid.
