It literally took them a couple of tweets and one direct message to convince me that Fahrenheit Press was where this anthology was meant to live.

Read this exclusive extended extract from Deathbeds by Tony R. Cox

Deathbeds - the new book in Tony R. Cox's popular Simon Jardine Investigates series is published on 30th April and today we're giving you a sneak preview with this exclusive extended extract...

Quite a few of you have been asking for the link this weekend so I've decided to move it away from the obscure tumblr url it was hiding on and give it new home here on the main Fahrenheit blog - seems to make sense, pretty sure if there had been no Bowie in my life, there would have been no Fahrenheit Press.  Kooks A little 7 year old boy from an irish catholic council house in Glasgow was lying in front of a massive valve powered cabinet tv one night...

Call for submissions : Gabba Gabba Hey - A Ramones Anthology

“Well, I think we're the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world.." - Joey Ramone Formed in 1974, the Ramones were one of the quintessential punk bands. Fast, loud, and in your face, they captured the anger and ennui of a generation.  Teenagers for decades have identified with the themes in their quick, sparse lyrics and driving music.
