Gipps to Publish Uncle!

17 Mar

ImageMarcus Gipps, Editor at Gollancz, has decided to do a personal project and publish the complete Uncle series by J P Martin. There are 6 books in the series: Uncle (1964), Uncle Cleans Up (1965), Uncle and His Detective (1966), Uncle and the Treacle Trouble (1967), Uncle and Claudius the Camel (1970), Uncle and the Battle for Badgertown (1973). 

Marcus Gipps plans on using the site Kickstarter, a crowdfunding site, and his project aims for a target of £8,000 to fund a 400-copy print run of The Complete Uncle – priced at £30 each. One fan has already promised £2,000 and if the fundraising goes well the print run will increase and will be distributed by Matador Press. 

A Facebook page for the initiative has been set up here
