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.

But before we get to more interesting Bzff info, check out this very cool video for the amazing novel, Glass House 51:


Bzff Books is a tiny press dedicated to publishing the works of John Hampel, author, raconteur, and former IT geek.  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.

At present, Mr. Hampel is currently working on two new strange and wonderful novels, which should emerge from the dark matter in the coming year – or at least one of them should, God willing (& the creek don’t rise)….

In the meantime, 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….
