The Return of Mike Faraday

Mike Faraday visualised by Rob Moran
Piccadilly Publishing is to release the digital backlist of Basil Copper’s PI Series, Mike Faraday. The Dark Mirror will be published on 01 April 2014 at the low price of .99p and will publish one per month thereafter until the series is complete.

Mike Stotter said, “We’ve looked at our past sales and like every publisher out there, look to experiment with the price. At .99p per title the readers will eventually be able to build a complete Mike Faraday series for less than £52.00. Compared to having to buy the physical books, which could set them back in the region of £350 (if they can get them all); this is a bargain that will be very hard to resist. The series will also carry especially-commissioned covers painted by film noir specialist Rob Moran.”

The Dark Mirror was originally published in 1966 and introduced hard-boiled Los Angeles P.I. Mike Faraday. Faraday is your typical pulp private eye: tough; quick with the wise-cracks and his fists, and oh yes – he also has a healthy eye for the ladies. The series ran for more than two decades, with the final book, Print Out, appearing in 1988. The series will be available across all platforms including Kindle, Nook, Kobo and Smashwords.
