We’re proud to announce that our first ever book is now ready for public consumption. It’s taken a while to come to fruition, but we’re finally able to show off our book. It’s titled The 1st PlayingBingo.co.uk Anthology Of Bingo, and collects together a range of short-stories, poems and photographs all inspired by the game of bingo, and you can buy it right here!
Featuring a diverse range of content, from sci-fi to kitchen sink drama, the book has been compiled from the short-listed and winning entries to the poetry and writing competitions we held a few years back. There’s also a number of full-colour photo pages in the book, featuring the work of Michael Hess and Henry/Bragg. All in all it’s a nice little compilation of content that’s should have a few items to appeal to anyone.
I’m going to call it here and now, this (to my best knowledge) is the world’s first (and only) anthology dedicated to the game of bingo. Why it’s taken this long for someone to create such a compilation I can only guess, but there you go. If anyone out there knows different and would like to quosh my claim, then please feel free to let me know. Until then, I’m sticking with my assertion that there’s never been a collection in print like this one before, and this is a genuine world first. 😉
What’s more, all the writers of the short-listed and winning entries to the competitions each received two copies of the book, which we sent out to them last week (pictured below). We’ll also be giving away copies of the book as prizes at Tidy Bingo.
If having a proper book doesn’t appeal to you, then keep an eye out as we’ll be getting it on to Kindle very soon. But, if you would like to get a slab of bingo right there in your hand, visit the shop page and place your order. They won’t be around for long so grab ’em whilst you can.
