"Great Depression Special" Treats Readers' Depression with Dystopia, Satire, and Severely Slashed Prices

ENC PRESS, an independent, all-fiction boutique press, whose specialty is social satire, today announced a "Great Depression Special," including three new acquisitions and price reductions of up to 25 percent for its entire catalogue.

Monkey See by Walt Maguire is available for pre-orders now. When asthma research accidentally leads to creating talking animals, Man must finally confront the question avoided for centuries: How will this affect dinner parties? Ed the Talking Monkey is stuck between two worlds, with only one good pair of pants, living in a world he never made. Who isn't? Illustrated by the author.

More information and a special sneak preview:

Dear Mr. Unabomber by Ray Cavanaugh is scheduled for release this fall. Trying to make sense out of life in the cultural wasteland of ever-ascending technology and materialism, a precocious college student writes letters to the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, whom he sees as the most compelling counterpoint to the frenzy of online dating, cyber-chats, Internet porn, and futile blogger slacktivism. Illustrated by the author.

The Eternity Brigade by Stephen Goldin is scheduled for release in 2010. A dystopian allegory of modern-day warfare originally published in 1980, The Eternity Brigade is not just a reprint: in an unprecedented move, this edition is a complete new edit and rewrite that turns a sci-fi cult classic into a contemporary commentary.

ENC Press's Great Depression special. If you're depressed about the recession, ENC Press can cure you with a humorous dose of dystopia. We also offer a veritable smorgasbord of other gourmet food for thought, and to make buying our books even more palatable, we've slashed our prices 20% to 25% off the list price.

Special offer for the fans of ENC Press on Facebook. The first 100 orders placed between now and 15 April 2009 will win a free book and an additional 20% off coupon on the next order. We plan to use our page on Facebook for virtual book parties to celebrate new releases and birthdays of the older ones; discussions with authors; spontaneously self-generating book clubs; and the opportunity to meet other like-minded readers.

About ENC Press. Founded in 2003, with 17 titles in its catalogue and three more on the way, ENC Press is the intelligent alternative to traditional publishing: a small but completely independent boutique press, whose specialty is social satire. Our business model allows us to welcome, promote, and keep in print, regardless of the commercial potential, unique, witty, genre-busting novels and authors whose views may be unpopular with some of the mainstream public. All ENC Press's titles contain elements of social and political satire or commentary, offer unexpected insights into foreign cultures, and tip a few sacred cows along the way.
