New Anthology Announced

2018 sees the re-launch of the Alchemy Press Book Of… anthologies with a brand new title: HORRORS, edited by Peter Coleborn and Jan Edwards. We are looking for horror stories … but tales that can be described as “weird”, “strange”, “amazing” and “peculiar”: stories that would have found a home in Weird Tales, Unknown Worlds, Fantastic and Fantasy Tales among other illustrious publications.

For the full guidelines visit the Alchemy Press of Horrors submissions page.

Online at last

We are pleased to report that our house move went well with only a few hiccups along the way. The new house is comfortable and is beginning to feel like home 🙂
