"Fiction is like a spider's web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners."

Virginia Woolf

Faraway Press, an independent imprint for far-fetched and not so far-fetched ideas, was born with the publication of Tales of Grin - The Magic Opening Chord by John Skinner.

This children's fantasy, which is also linked to a tricky online treasure hunt that still remains to be solved, was followed last year by Henry with an Eye, the author's second publication for young people and the young-at-heart with a taste for things a little out of the ordinary.

In addition to further information on these two books, you will also find an online bookshelf on these pages, where older readers are invited to browse at their leisure.

Faraway Press does not accept unsolicited manuscripts for book publication, but will be happy to consider short pieces (not more than about 3000 words) for publication in its online Reading Room.
