Types of books published: Non-Fiction Guides to cult film and TV; occasional fiction (Horror/Dark Fantasy)
Editorial policy: We’re always interested in ideas for Guides, especially where the author has some unique selling point – specialist research in the show, access to interviewees, photographic access and so on. Fiction tends to be commissioned rather than us accepting unsolicited ms. Familiarity with what we do would be very helpful.
Submission of manuscripts: Please contact us by email before sending anything. We can then discuss your ideas and see if they might fit our profile. We would then discuss with the author what we’d like to see in terms of copy and manuscript.
Average time taken to respond to unsolicited manuscripts: This can vary greatly depending on workloads. If we’re not interested, then we usually respond within days; but if there’s something of interest then we may take longer to consider before responding. However, please see above – we ask that you don’t send anything without having spoken to us first.
Any other information: We’re a friendly small press with bags of enthusiasm and love of publishing and books. We won the 2006 World Fantasy Award in the best Non-Professional category for our publishing work, and several of our titles have won literary and design awards over the years.
