THE OLD LADY WHO INVENTED GOITH – the debut novel from Mick Mercer




Having written about Goth since it began, with a past in fanzines (starting in 1976) and music journalism, I guess it isn’t surprising what lies at the heart of my first novel, THE OLD LADY WHO INVENTED GOTH, but this is not a typical book. For a start the first edition is illustrated in a new way for a novel, while the story is a prequel to what we know and understand. 100 years ago Hermione M. Lee wanted what we have now, but it simply didn’t exist. As she was just fourteen, and a surprisingly foul-mouthed child, with The Great War brewing quietly in the distance there wasn’t a great deal she could do about it, or anything. That never stopped her trying, from the moment she found creativity crackling beneath her fingernails and in a busy life Hermione was rarely inert for long. A champion of darkness, and yet a vanquisher of gloom, Hermione M. Lee is a Gothic blueprint in action, living a life steeped in sin and intrigue, but justifiably so.

All my GOTHIC, PUNK( including Siouxsie and The Damned) and INDIE (with darker artists like PJ Harvey, Psychic and Daisy Chainsaw) books are now available as downloads too for £5 each, or £7.50 if they are over 400 pages. Apparently these will work on Kindle if you’re tech savvy (if not, ask someone who is), and they’ll work with all the new iPads. (If you have an earlier iPad you simply get a shareware app to read pdfs.) Scroll down the mighty list: http://stores.lulu.com/mickmercer

Following actual requests from America I have done a couple of new Goth photo books, currently only in the US Letter size, of CHRISTIAN DEATH, posed in 1984, and DANIELLE DAX, posed in 1983. Although my website was updated recently these are too new to have been included, as is the ALIEN SEX FIEND 1984-1985 one. Full details for all of these behind the cut, along with masses of covers.

IF you would like your venue/city to join in this week-long benefit, please contact either Linda or Myself, Jack. It's not too late to get involved and help a great cause.

BATCAVE BOOKS x 10




The publisher I use is offering free shipping in America until June 30th so I thought I’d pop this up here in case it benefits you. These are cheap books on gloss paper, featuring individual gigs from the Batcave. These have appeared in the Batcave compendium books I do (on 55# weight matt paper), but these are on 80# weight paper, done saddle-stitch, magazine style, with a lovely feel and using the full colour printing process. Although they remain black and white photos, the inks used ensure more vibrant detail comes through in the images. All covers, details and urls behind the cut.

http://stores.lulu.com/mickmercer - all books (Punk, Goth and Indie) – worth a look if you can benefit from the American postage offer.

HEX FILES: Resurrection update



I have deleted the earlier post because people have asked for more specific details of contents so behind the cut of this trimmer update you can see how many photos have been added, and of whom, which should prove easily enough why this is the biggest book ever published on Goth, with the American and UK sections now individually bigger than the original book was.
(*Someone that just ordered it tells me Lulu – the publisher - are offering free shipping within America through the Summer.)
