Burnham Priory

Burnham Priory Publications was set up as an imprint of Bristol Folk Publications especially to reissue classic western and adventure novels by Shirehampton-based author, Hal Jons. Jons had 15 western adventures published between 1960 and his death in 1983. These were joined, under the ‘nom de guerre’ of Harry Graham, by Channel Incident, a gripping, all-action WW2 adventure novel, and Pit Prop, an explosive novel taking in disaster, infidelity and incendiary emotions in a Welsh mining village. In recent years Hal’s books have undergone something of a reappraisal and have been held up as all-action ‘genre exemplars’, where good always prevails over evil and the hero always gets his best gal. All books have been republished in the year that celebrates the 100th anniversary of his birth. Burnham Priory Publications has worked closely with the Hal Jons Estate throughout the publication process so that the surviving family members benefit directly from each and every sale.
