Meerkat Press Acquires The Invisible by Seb Doubinsky

We are ecstatic to announce the acquisition of the next book in the City-States Cycle, The Invisible, by the enormously talented author, Seb Doubinsky. The book was acquired by Meerkat Press in a deal for world English language rights, from Matt Bialer of Sanford J. Greenburger Associates literary agency. Publish date will be announced.

Like previous books in the series, The Invisible is a masterfully written dystopian set in a dystopian universe. It’s election time in New Babylon, and President Maggie Delgado is running for re-election but is threatened by the charismatic populist Ted Rust. Newly appointed City Commissioner Georg Ratner is given the priority task to fight the recent invasion of Synth in the streets of the capital, a powerful hallucinogen drug with a mysterious origin. When his old colleague asks him for help on another case and gets murdered, things become more and more complicated, and his official neutrality becomes a burden in the political intrigue he his gradually sucked into. Supported by Laura, his trustful life partner and the Egyptian goddess Nut, Ratner decides to fight for what he believes in, no matter the cost.

“After publishing Seb’s Missing Signal last year, I was anxiously awaiting the next entry in this series, and The Invisible was worth the wait. Like all of Seb’s novels, the journey is supremely satisfying,” says Tricia Reeks, who acquired the novel for Meerkat

Seb Doubinsky says of The Invisible, “I wanted to write an unconventional dystopian noir with political implications that resound with actual realities and Meerkat Press is the perfect publisher for this kind of non-conformist fiction.

Folk Songs

Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons Blog Tour & Giveaway


With Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons, award-winning author Keith Rosson delves into notions of family, grief, identity, indebtedness, loss, and hope, with the surefooted merging of literary fiction and magical realism he’s explored in previous novels. In “Dunsmuir,” a newly sober husband buys a hearse to help his wife spread her sister’s ashes, while “The Lesser Horsemen” illustrates what happens when God instructs the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to go on a team-building cruise as a way of boosting their frayed morale. In “Brad Benske and the Hand of Light,” an estranged husband seeks his wife’s whereabouts through a fortuneteller after she absconds with a cult, and in “High Tide,” a grieving man ruminates on his brother’s life as a monster terrorizes their coastal town. With grace, imagination, and a brazen gallows humor, Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons merges the fantastic and the everyday, and includes a number of Rosson’s unpublished stories, as well as award-winning favorites.

“These powerful stories will leave readers unsettled in the best ways.”

Speculate Blog Tour & Giveaway

From what began as a dialog between two adventurous writers curious about the shape-shifter called a prose poem comes a stunning collection that is a disruption of language—a provocation. Speculate is a hybrid of speculative poetry and flash fiction, thrumming in a pulse of jouissance and intensity that chases the impossible.
