Hey ho, what do you know? We’re very excited to have a chatsy with the inimitable AJ Kirby, whose vicious new novella, Nu-Gen, is out this Monday! Here’s what it’s all about, and what AJ has to say for himself.
Hear ye, cublets!
We are überstoked (it is a real word. See we just used it!) to announce our May short story. Say hello to Beautiful Things, by Jennifer Loring (yes, esteemed horror queen and multi-published writer, JENNIFER LORING).
Here’s what you need to know about Beautiful Things:
Mitzi Weinhaus is the talentless daughter of two Munich Kabarett stars. One night, in an underground club that has so far escaped Nazi detection, she meets the enigmatic singer Giselle, who offers her the chance to be a hero. All Mitzi has to do is infiltrate the notorious Dachau death camp, but she won’t have to do it alone.
Teamed up with the mysterious Wolfrik, for whom she develops an alarming attraction, Mitzi soon finds herself ensnared in a world of secret societies, super-soldiers, monsters, and gods. Double-crossed on all sides, it is up to her to save her parents from certain death–and to save her heart from one of the most powerful beings in the universe.
Loring paints a WII steampunk/urban fantasy mashup with grace and infinite skill, and delivers a gripping story centred around those immortal human challenges: love, fear, oppression and deliverance.
Don’t miss this exquisite novelette, which is out this Friday!
The time has come for an epic gathering; a mustering of speculative fiction novelettes, bound into one sickening tome of good writing. We’d like to present to you: ravensmoot: An anthology of speculative fiction. Here’s what you need to know about this limited edition paperback:
In this debut anthology of speculative fiction short stories, Fox & Raven Publishing presents a smorgasbord of delectable tales. In an eclectic mix of horror, fantasy, dystopian dreampunk and all-too-real thrillers, ravensmoot exhibits some of the best new writing in the genre.
With a cartel of South African, Ugandan, British and American writers, ravensmoot promises to delight readers looking for powerful writing that isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of their respective genres.
We are very happy to announce that ravensmoot will be available as a print anthology in select bookstores across the country before Christmas! And yes, that makes this the first Fox & Raven print publication, so we’re all warm and fuzzy about that.
With the introduction written by Charlie Human, acclaimed author of Apocalypse Now Now, and featuring six powerful writers, we just know you’re gonna love this.
