Kirkus Reviews on Meet Me in the Strange by Leander Watts

Kirkus Reviews has weighed in on Leander Watts new YA novel, Meet Me in the Strange and we loved what they had to say! Check out the full review here. “The world of the novel, from its language and geography to its layers of popular culture, is drawn with intricacy and vitality . . . Watts successfully captures not only the gravity of a teenage subculture, but also the more mercurial feeling of an axial generation on the cusp of something completely new. A bighearted and imaginative tale about a glam god’s fans.” -Kirkus Reviews   Meet Me in the...

The Year of the Knife Playlist

We asked G.D. Penman to share with us a playlist of the music he listened to while writing The Year of the Knife. He even organized it for us. General Music: Because of the divergent history of The Year of the Knife, music that we take for granted as old hat is only just coming to the fore. In the American colonies this means that country music and bluegrass are the next big thing. Of course, culture and music are deeply intertwined, and urbanisation has already happened, so these bluegrass bands can’t be singing purely about rural experiences. Thunderstruck- Steve...

Smoke City by Keith Rosson Reviewed by IndiePicks Magazine

If you haven’t bought the January issue of IndiePicks Magazine, we highly recommend it! We loved the review of Keith Rosson’s Smoke City. The comparisons are exciting to say the least. Get the Magazine at IndiePicksMag.com. “Rosson creates a fantasy where a very real world of human relationships filled with common concerns such as forgiveness or guilt mixes with fantastic elements in a seemingly matter-of-fact way, similar to the slipstream style of writers such as Kelly Link, Ted Chiang, or Jonathan Lethem. Smoke City is an involving and engrossing blend of fantasy and the everyday, and is highly recommended to anyone looking...

Behind the Mask is a Kirkus Best Indie Books of 2017

Behind the Mask made the Kirkus Best Indie Books of 2017 list and we think this is news of heroic proportions, which is kind of fitting given that it is a superhero anthology. This was such a fun anthology to work on and we were delighted with the range of amazing stories contributed. Well-known authors like Carrie Vaughn, Seanan McGuire and Kelly Link and others we’d never read before but were so excited to discover! In fact, it was the first story several of our authors had ever published. If you haven’t checked out this collection, what better reason...
