Fantasy & Gothic Blog
We’re delighted to present the author lists for the next two anthologies in our Gothic Fantasy series: Detective Thrillers, and A Dying Planet. Due for publication in February 2020, these latest books continue to pair contemporary takes on the themes with classic tales that have helped shape the genres as we know them today. Once again, we received a great response to our recent call for submissions, and we’re excited to now share the results of a selection process that has been both tough and rewarding: congratulations to the below and many thanks to all who submitted!
We have three great new titles coming out in March, so we wanted to talk about them! These include a new horror from Tim Waggoner called The Forever House, Robert Mitchell Evans' Vulcan's Forge and Two Lives, a crime book featuring stories from China. Find out more here!
In the last of this month's Q&As with our February authors, we have Beth Overmyer. She talks about the themes of her book, The Goblets Immortal, her writing methods and gives some advice for new writers!

Please note, these submissions are now closed.
We are so excited to announce that Stoker's Wilde, by Steven Hopstaken and Melissa Prusi has been longlisted for this year's Not the Booker prize! Three books will be chosen from the list by popular vote, with three others being added by the judges, so we really need your vote!
