John Jarrold has sold limited-edition rights in popCULT!, a novel by UK author David Barnett, to Chris Teague at Welsh publisher Pendragon Press. David is the Assistant Editor of the Bradford Telegraph and Argus newspaper, and has had two earlier novels published by Immanion Press, Hinterland and Angelglass. He also writes regular blogs for the Guardian books website.
popCULT! is a contemporary SF caper in which a struggling writer is drawn into the machinations of a motley group of underground art prankster rebels who harbour a strange and terrible secret beneath the streets of London.
David said, ‘popCULT! is one of my favourite works and I’m delighted that a press with the reputation of Pendragon has taken it on.’
‘David is both prolific and incredibly inventive,’ said John Jarrold. ‘I’m expecting great things of him as his career progresses!’
