Meerkat Press to Publish Seb Doubinsky’s Missing Signal

Published by:

With the recent acquisition of worldwide English rights to Seb Doubinsky’s Missing Signal, from Matt Bialer at Sanford J. Greenburger Associates, 2018 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for Meerkat Press.

Missing Signal could be described as a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a government conspiracy. Agent Terrence Kovacs has worked so long at the Counter-Intel Department propagating fake UFO stories that he’s unsure where fact meets fiction when he is contacted by aliens.

Seb Doubinsky is a bilingual writer born in Paris in 1963. His novels, all set in a dystopian universe revolving around competing cities-states, have been published in the UK and in the USA. He currently lives with his family in Aarhus, Denmark, where he teaches at the university.

Published by:

-46Days -18Hours -29Minutes -56Seconds

The waiting is over! We are excited to unveil the cover for The Year of the Knife, by G.D. Penman!


About The Year of the Knife
 – Sully is an agent of the British Empire who is not afraid to use her magic skills to crack a case. But she may need more than magic to track a serial killer across New Amsterdam and the American colonies, since the killer is controlling its victims’ bodies with a powerful magic of its own.

About G.D. Penman – G.D. Penman writes fantasy fiction. He lives in Scotland with his partner and children, some of whom are human. By day he is a writer for hire, by night he stares at the ceiling and makes up stories. He is a firm believer in the axiom that any story is made better by dragons. His beard has won an award. He is a time traveller, but only forward, and only slowly. Once upon a time he was the editor of Forgotten Worlds Magazine and Amphetamine Press. His short fiction can be found in Phantasmacore and Three Lobed Burning Eye. His literary criticism can be found online at BookWitty. If you have ever read a story with queer people and Kaiju, it was probably his.
