We're delighted to announce the full list of successful submissions for the first two of our 2017 Gothic Fantasy deluxe anthologies: Lost Worlds and Supernatural Horror. These join our growing collection of popular hardcover anthologies, which so far include the titles: Dystopia Utopia, Swords & Steam, Crime & Mystery, Murder Mayhem, Horror, Ghosts, and Science Fiction.
We received an overwhelmingly positive response to our call for submissions this year, making narrowing down the final selection a difficult but immensely rewarding process. The Supernatural Horror volume, which attracted over 900 submissions alone, brings an array of nightmarish monsters, sinister happenings and creepy tales, while Lost Worlds carries with it the thrill of unexplored lands and mysterious civilisations. We are proud to be publishing this selection of exciting contemporary writers alongside works by iconic authors that have helped shape and inspire these genres.
Congratulations to all!
