Bapton Books, Publishers
This is the LJ site for Bapton Books, a Small Imprint Publisher. We are the publishers of GMW Wemyss’ The Confidence of the House: May 1940, of The Annotated Wind in the Willows, for Children and Sensible Adults (or, Possibly, for Adults and Sensible Children, by GMW Wemyss and Markham Shaw Pyle, of the detective novel (mystery story, in American) Gold Red as Blood, and of Mr Pyle’s forthcoming ‘Fools, Drunks, and the United States’: August 12, 1941.


The Confidence of the House: May 1940 is the story of the fall of the Chamberlain government and the ascent of Churchill to the premiership. On 12 August 2011, it will be matched or mirrored by ‘Fools, Drunks, and the United States’: August 12, 1941, which tells the story of how, four months before the Japanese attack on Hawaii, the United States Congress kept the military draft by one vote.


The Annotated Wind in the Willows, for Children and Sensible Adults (or, Possibly, for Adults and Sensible Children is an annotated version of the classic tale of the middle Thames, enriched with literary and historical references and cross-references. And Gold Red as Blood is a twister of a tale we’re proud to have published, the author being an old friend of Mr Pyle’s.


Certainly our purpose is to sell books. But this is also the place for you, to say what you liked and what you didn’t, to review and discuss, to suggest books you’d like to see – and to let us know if you’ve one you’d like us to consider.


And if you are interested in buying, the Kindle version of The Annotated Wind in the Willows is now available at the UK, US, and German Amazon sites. [The Kindle version of The Confidence of the House: May 1940 should be available quite soon, and that of Gold Red as Blood shortly thereafter.] The print-on-demand versions of all books are available at Lulu, here, here, and here; each has a link to its respective downloadable (non-Kindle) version as well.


Sit down, have a cuppa or a pint o’ zoider, and let’s talk about books, shall we?
