Wild Boar Books: First publications

Poetry: Onesie by Guy Wilgress Hudson Guy portrait

Guy was a huge part of Lincoln’s nascent poetry scene and was the proprietor of an independent bookshop just a short distance from the splendour of Lincoln Cathedral. He reads runes and is studying at Lincoln University.

Onesie is his first collection for Wild Boar Books. The Onesie is not simply an item of clothing. It is a kaleidoscopic filter through which to view our unsettled world. Climb in and zip up.

Guy Hudson straddles the fence between town and gown. This is work by a dedicated and crafty poet who has stuck to his guns whilst others left the scene with nothing more to say. His perseverance should earn him a medal if he believed in such things. Certainly he has struck gold in this selection of his poems.

Dr Keith Armstrong, author of The Month of the Asparagus

 Available from May 4th: Amazon

Richard has been producing the pulp fiction zine, Venusian Astro Dirt, for the last 2 years. Recently he has written a play, The Grindhouse, which received Arts Council funding and was performed at the New Theatre Royal in Lincoln.

Our Bright Dark Summer is Wild Boar Books first prose publication. Available from May 4th: Amazon

Nails always said that Summer Land was cursed from the very beginning. Maybe he was right. A dead theme park, slowly rotting away is the perfect place to hide ghosts and traumas and kidnap victims.

Jimmy Benson knows the past is always your shadow and the older you get the darker the shadows become. That’s why he will return to Summer Land. It might be the only chance he has for redemption – if he can keep the kidnapped girl safe. Safe from Nails, safe from ghosts, safe from the past.

Fun and thrills by the sand. It’s waiting for you at Summer Land.

Wonderfully unsettling. A brilliant, breakneck ride that demands your attention from start to finish. Tiffany Scandal, author of Shit Luck & Jigsaw Youth
