We at Falling Sky Hazard Press have one
question for you: are you a demographic? Our books are not
chosen by a group of marketers pie-eyed and bruise-kneed from
worshipping at the altar of the god of demos (a creature with
five heads, all of them grinning and bland). We believe that
the obsession with image, gentrification of ideas, and
"branding" of artists is making all of culture into
a soul-deadening drive-thru experience. What's desperately
needed are more unique voices that cannot be captured on an
Excel spreadsheet. We won't promise that you'll always like
what these voices have to say, but we will guarantee that
their perspectives will be one-of-a-kind, passionate, and funny.
Oh, also, we promise that we won’t publish any books with
the bared legs of young women on the cover. Have you noticed
how many books there are with leggy covers on the shelves
these days? What they’re trying to do is instill in your
mind the promise of adolescent sex by having those legs all
over the place (cause you know what’s waiting between them).
And it’s probably a safe bet that if the cover art is that
uniformly dull, uh, what’s written inside ain’t exactly
inspired (after all, the same people who pick the covers, pick
the books). But then again, marketers are counting on you not
being able to tell the difference. As far as they’re
concerned, the legs and cheeky titles alone will hypnotize you
into buying their crap. It’s just another example of the
insulting mindlessness of trends, and the people who swear by
them. We think you deserve better.
