Hard-Hitting New Fiction

One-off chapbooks – a new series of single-story chapbooks


Virginia Ashberry has been very active in grass roots lit in Toronto – writing, publishing and broadcasting on community radio. Her fiction bores deeply into contemporary urban life, revealing its bruises, blemishes and unexpected beauty just so.


Gerald Locklin is a small-press legend, having published dozens of books of prose and poetry over the past four decades. A pivotal figure on the California writing scene, Locklin was a good friend of Charles Bukowski. Publishing his work is a terrific launching point for this new series of chapbooks from Black Bile Press.



David Rose is no stranger to readers of Front&Centre where his fiction has appeared many times. Rose is an outstanding writer of variable and visceral short fiction. Nicholas Royle of Time Out London called Rose one of England’s “finest short story writers.”




Black Bile Press One-off chapbooks are published in very limited editions of only 50 copies each. These books will move quickly and escalate in price once collectors catch on. Get in early; buy now!

Books can be purchased individually for $5 or all three, as a series, for $10.
