Turning of the Seasons: A Dark Almanac including shipping AU$20.95

Seasons have always been connected with the passing of time and the changes of life, inspiring myths, folklore, poems and songs. In this short collection award-winning J.S. Breukelaar and Seb Doubinsky have decided to pay tribute to the old tradition of yearly almanacs, which contained short pieces of lore and traditions. Keeping with the short format, they have renewed the genre by infusing it with a modern-day setting, pushing the boundaries of the folk-horror uncanny into the borders of our cities. A succession of disturbing stories and vignettes, sometimes poetic, sometimes funny, but always gruesome, The Turning Of The Seasons will surely be an almanac you will never forget.

(*) Some more obscure geographies might be problematic – in these situations we will provide full refunds. Most shipping will be from the UK.

New Release: X-Dimensional Assassin Zai Through the Unfolded Earth by Jason Franks

IFWG Publishing is extremely pleased to announce the Australian and UK release of Jason Franks’ science fiction/fantasy/mystery/crime/multiverse mashup novel, X-Dimensional Assassin Zai Through the Unfolded Earth. Cover art is by the amazing Daniele Serra. The North American release will occur in early November 2022.

“Franks’ story was a no-brainer for IFWG,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director, “and it certainly was a pleasure for our staff to work with him through the production lifecycle. Franks always delivers, what with our earlier publication of his fantasy novel, Faerie Apocalypse, this new title, and a soon-to-be revealed project coming in 2023.”

Zai is an international assassin who’s in it for the travel. So, when his new agency starts to send him on assignment to places that do not exist, it’s a dream come true.

Crooked accountants, faerie industrialists, hero scientists, down-at-heels gods, secret police chiefs. A hidden continent colonised by refugees from sunken Atlantis, a secret space station, an aerostatic city-state, a post-apocalyptic Faerie Land, a Britain that has taken the hardest Brexit of all.

Whoever you are, and wherever you hide, X-Dimensional Assassin Zai will find you… but not until he’s taken some happy snaps and tried the local cuisine.

A few happy reviewers:

“Infinitely imaginative, XDA Zai is a twisting tale of travel, adventure and unconventional murder that will have you ripping through the pages.” 

— Devin Madson, author of We Ride the Storm

“Multiversal murder? Extradimensional travel through the strange liminal spaces of airports? Mayhem from the mind of Jason Franks? Sign me up.”

— Justin Jordan, author of Luther Strode and Spread.

X-Dimensional Assassin Zai Through the Unfolded Earth is available from all good online and bricks and mortar bookstores. It will be released on the 1st November 2022 in North America.

New Release: Almost Human: A Collection of Short Stories by Nathan Burrage

IFWG Publishing is pleased to announce the Australian and UK release of Nathan Burrage’s horror collection of short fiction, Almost Human. Cover art is by the talented Greg Chapman. The North American release will occur in early November 2022.

In this collection, you’ll encounter stories set in the near future where neuroscience and technology are used to rehabilitate convicted criminals with unexpected results. In the icy winter of a distant Transylvania, a struggle for freedom from Ottoman oppression unfolds. In the present, one man struggles to accept his failed marriage. A pair of cursed lovers live out multiple incarnations, doomed to always find one another, yet never be together. And when a mythical figure walks amongst us, his notes in the margins of history take shape.

The past, present and future blur when we consider what it is to be Almost Human.

This title is now available through all good bricks and mortar stores, as well as Kindle, throughout the world except North America (when, in November 2022, it will also be released through IFWG Publishing International).

Preorder Offer: Songs From a White Heart

Jack Dann’s upcoming poetry collection chapbook, Songs From a White Heart, will be released in North America on 1st November 2022, and the rest of the world a little earlier, 1st October 2022. It is a true chapbook, slim and small in size, but dense with poetic form and meaning.

Click the following link to preorder the title from anywhere in the world*, and North American readers will get the shipment delivered, like the rest of the world, on, or just prior to 1 October 2022. This offer ceases on 15 September 2022.

THIS OFFER IS NOW OVER

In the green days of youth-in another life and in a far land-Jack Dann was invited to participate in Native American religious ceremonies and culture. And in that far country of the past Jack experienced numinous moments and small revelations that changed his life and his art. Some of those distant moments and visceral wisdoms are encapsulated in Poems From a White Heart…a lifetime’s distillation of poems birthed in the ice and fire of a lost America.

Songs From a White Heart is a journey grounded in intensely personal revelations that inspired Jack’s poetry, short stories, and novels such as Bad Medicine, which Locus Magazine described as showing us “that true magics, supernatural moments of both grief and joy, can be found in life itself. You just have to know where to look, and how to invoke them-and Jack Dann is an expert at such things.”
