We are very happy to announce three new books for 2020. We are publishing "Thin Places," the debut short story collection from Kay Chronister. Kay is a remarkable new writer, with stories in Black Static, The Dark, Strange Horizons, Shimmer, and more. This manuscript captivated me. You are in for a treat.
We've acquired our first novella--"Armageddon House," by Michael Griffin. This is an engaging and timely piece of dystopian fiction. Michael's latest book, "The Human Alchemy," was a Shirley Jackson Award Finalist. He continues to grow and evolve as a writer, fashioning a unique worldview. As soon as we have cover art we will share it.
Our novellas will be released in paperback and eBook editions, and an extremely limited 26-copy lettered hardcover.
A title we are always excited to produce--Shadows & Tall Trees--will see volume 8 published early next year. Volume 7 won the Shirley Jackson Award; volume 6 was a finalist for the World Fantasy Award and the Shirley Jackson Award. Through 7 volumes we've published 74 stories and had 29 'Best Of' reprints. It's a tremendous showcase for the contemporary field of weird fiction and horror. The contents of volume 8 are thus:
