BZFF World

Bzff is a wonderful Moroccan word for “Plentiful,” or “More,” oft-used by our intrepid publisher, who was exiled to El Menzel, Morocco, during her stint in the Peace Corps.


Bzff Books is a small press dedicated to publishing the works of the acclaimed author, John Hampel. His first novel, Wherever You Go, There You Are, received very positive reviews in Publisher’s Weekly, Library Journal, ALA Booklist, to name a few, and had impressive sales for a first novel by a small press. The hardcover edition sold out and was reissued as a trade paperback in March 2000.

Then, twenty years after the publication of Wherever You Go, There You Are, Mr. Hampel returned from the Midwestern hinterlands, bearded, dusty, reeking of woodsmoke and perhaps a vestige of polecat with Glass House 51 under his arm, a sizzling novel about our dark descent into the endgame of technology, privacy, and the human spirit.

Feel free to check out the Wherever You Go, There You Are and Glass House 51 blurbs on this website and in the Akashic  records, if they have found a place there, and on Amazon.com, where you can make them your own. . . .
