On Thursday September 3rd 2020 it is expected that there will be approximately 600 new releases into the book market, some held over due to the lockdown and some that were expected to come out at this time, and this is not going to be much less on each successive Thursday.
All of these books will be vying for the marketing pound and limited shelf space in various bookshops. We have all seen the books being released from the Big Five but have we seen the books/zines/pamphlets being released by the indie publishers? Probably not.
Here are a selection of releases throughout the month of September from independent publishers. (list of preorder links at the bottom of the page)
