Recent Imperfections

Welcome to Perfidy Press, publishing dark matter since 2018.

We hope you enjoy your visit. There’s lots to see here and it’s not all perfidious. Besides pages about us, our philosophy, and our publications and works in progress, find an entertaining blog with literary musings, book reviews, and thoughts on politics and technology. (See some recent posts down yonder on the sidebar.)

Here, we run down recent items of possible interest, such as event announcements, sample chapters, book reviews, videos, and the occasional rant. Speaking of which, find a bunch our Admin’s skew views at The Daily Eruption over on our sister site, Progressive Pilgrim Review.

Here’s some of what’s happening…

Excerpt from Her Own Devices

Her Own Devices is a sequel to Geoff Dutton’s Turkey Shoot, but it’s not a thriller. Call it Contemporary Crime Fiction, Women’s Fiction even. Look for it in 2021, but in the meantime, here’s an interesting scene from its current version.

Turkey Shoot the Movie

Turkey Shoot will attend the 2020 Frankfurt Book fair along with 200 other titles in the Independent Book Publishers Association’s online booth, with its author lurking nearby to snag foreign rights agents and film studio scouts as they pass by. Exhibit A will be this book trailer. Check it out.

Turkey Shoot the Rap Sheet

Selling books in venues like the Frankfurt Book Fair requires providing something called a tip or sales sheet describing one’s wares (swag helps too). The one we had for Turkey Shoot was way out of date, so we gave it a makeover. Please take one of these and put it in your book bag. Tells you everything you need to know to incentivize you to cut a deal for translation, republication abroad, or even a miniseries.

Perfidy Press the Bookstore

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with, especially as an author, but have found it hard to connect with independent bookstores to sell my work. And so, I got one of my own. It didn’t cost anything and stocking it was a breeze. It’s just a kiosk in the grand bazaar at, a nonprofit that aims to be an Amazon-killer and has sold tons of books online since debuting last winter.

Unlike Jeff Bezos, gives away 75% of its proceeds to booksellers and publishers and, to date, claims to have remitted over $7M to them since it opened for business last winter. Once I found out any publisher can have its own store at and they would do the fulfillment and bookkeeping and even pay commissions, I was hooked.

Visit my kiosk at by clicking on the book cover here. Whether or not your do, please tell all your friends and relations to quit buying books from Amazon. Tell them that when they shop at they get to favor their favorite local bookseller with a commission on whatever they purchase . It need not be Perfidy Press, but why not? Let them explain

Say Hey to Mr. Fish

Perfidy is in full display in color and monochrome by the artist known as Mr. Fish at his website and store at He’s a fabulous draughtsman who has mastered a range of media and styles to forcefully speak truth to power, as in this cartoon titled Donny Quixote.

Check out his many two-dimensional representations of perfidy there, and If you like what you see, consider buying a print or shelling out for Mr Fish the Movie. (it’s really good.)

Love, dolorem ipsum, and all that…
