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. Check the sidebar for some recent posts.

Here’s a rundown of recent items of possible interest:


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 what to expect:

See a sneak preview and read Chapter 8, Scene 2


A Coronavirus Playlist

A heartwarming, satirical songfest curated for your viewing and listening pleasure by Perfidy Press as a pandemic palliative.

Start jamming.


Turkey Shoot the Movie

Turkey Shoot virtually attended 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 ethereally pass by. Exhibit A is this book trailer.


Turkey Shoot the Rap Sheet

Selling books in venues like the Frankfurt Book Fair requires providing something called a tip or sales sheet. You need one to incentivize foreign publishers to translate and republish your book, and scouts from film studios to option it.The one we had for Turkey Shoot was way out of date, so we gave it a makeover. Please take one and put it in your book bag.


Perfidy Press the Bookstore

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with amazon.com, 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 bookshop.org, a nonprofit that aims to be an Amazon-killer and has sold tons of books online since debuting last winter.

Visit our bookstore

Unlike Jeff Bezos, bookshop.org 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 bookshop.org and they would do the fulfillment and bookkeeping and even pay commissions, I was hooked.

Visit the Perfidy Press kiosk at bookshop.org by clicking on the book cover. 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 bookshop.org they get to favor their favorite 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 clowncrack.com. 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.)
