The Saddest Sound *NEW* 




Richard Foreman’s Wilful Misunderstandings

Published April 1, 2016

WilfulMisunderstandings9780993390104thumbnailEach of the thirty-four short stories in this volume takes a word or a phrase from English language, twisting it into a new meaning, and by extension a new reality.

From humour to horror, from the fantastic to the philosophical, these stories are intended for readers who are too hip for the confines of genre.


Writing for the hell of it

While initially established to provide a platform solely for his own prose work, Lepus Books has now extended its remit to offer access to works which, overlooked by the mainstream, nonetheless appeal to Jamie Delano’s own idiosyncratic taste and, in his opinion, deserve the chance of an audience.

Limited capacity at this time however decrees that the platform is available by invitation only; we regret we are unable to consider unsolicited submissions.



With the aim of making our books more economically available on a worldwide basis, we have now arranged for print-on-demand editions of selected Lepus Books titles to be listed on major retail and wholesale platforms — thus making them also available for order at cover price via your local bookstore, who we recommend you support.

Print-on-demand books – while both durable and perfectly readable – are produced using a lighter grade interior paper and cover stock than the editions available via our website, and are sometimes subject to a slight, and hopefully temporary, ‘waviness’ in the book block.  This annoyance, we are informed, is ‘inherent in the POD process’.

If postage is not a disincentive, the better quality editions are still available direct via the book’s respective webpage.  These copies will also usually be signed by the author.

Yer pays yer money an’ takes yer pick.




DIGITAL EDITIONS of Lepus Books titles are now available at a reasonable price via Indie Selections – a new platform offering indie digital media: books, comics, music and more…

Please take a look by clicking here.

Print editions are of course still available for purchase, via their respective pages, should you prefer your reading matter in a more tangible form.


LEPUS BOOKS is happy to supply independent booksellers and comic shops, and our authors are available to offer support with signings and/or readings.  Please CONTACT us for details.


In 2012 the imprint launched with BOOK THIRTEEN, Delano’s first prose novel, published under the name A. William James.

Leepus: DIZZY is a second offering from Delano.

The Things You Do is Deborah Delano’s memoir of growing up working class and lesbian in 1970s Britain.

Deborah Delano’s The Saddest Sound is a novel about a misogynistic killer told from the perspective of the women who oppose him.
