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.

Mr. Hampel’s exciting new novel, River of Fire, River of Light, is featured this summer on Net Galley! You will be able to snag a free copy (in exchange – we humbly request – for a decent review) through September.

Below is a feature to proclaim River of Fire, River of Light’s availability on Net Galley.

Elizabeth has done what she must to support her impoverished family, sometimes working at night. . . .

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.

Also . . . we are refreshing Glass House 51 this summer with a new cover and text—the latter to clean up some typos.  Here is a sneak peek at the new cover:

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, where you can make them your own. . . .
