Blemish Books @ the Gorman house markets
November 3, 2014
Canberra has a thriving independent and small publishing scene. Unfortunately we don’t often get a chance to see them all together.
With that in mind Blemish Books is proud to be one of a number of local publishers teaming up to sell our books at the Gorman House Markets on the first Saturday of each month.
There will be a great range of books on sale including fiction, non-fiction, zines, biographies, poetry, essays and more. All of them are 100% locally published in Canberra.
Be sure to come along, have a browse, and maybe even buy a book!

The Beach Volcano coming soon
June 9, 2014
After the success of Nigel Featherstone’s first two novellas, Fall On Me and I’m Ready Now, Blemish Books is proud to announce the immanent release of The Beach Volcano.
The Beach Volcano is the third and final instalment of Featherstone’s “Launceston Trilogy”, a collection of thematically linked novellas written while writer-in-residence at the Kingsbridge Gatekeeper’s Cottage, Cataract Gorge, Launceston.
It tells the story of Canning Albury, a revered and irreverent singer-songwriter, returning home for his father’s eightieth birthday after years of estrangement. But it's not just his father's milestone that's brought Canning home. He also carries a secret about his family’s murky and unchartered past—a secret that could be explosive.
Renowned Australian writer Andrea Goldsmith says "Nigel Featherstone’s new book plunges into the loves and loyalties, the secrets and outward appearances of the wealthy Albury family. This is an insightful and at times disturbing story. Assured and compelling, The Beach Volcano holds you to the last page and beyond."
The Beach Volcano is due for release in the coming months. More information can be found in our bookstore.
