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).

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.”

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

Cover Reveal: Turning of the Seasons by J.S. Breukelaar & Seb Doubinsky

IFWG is very happy indeed to reveal the cover of J.S. Breukelaar and Seb Doubinsky’s upcoming collection of poetry and prose, Turning of the Seasons: A Dark Almanac. The artwork is by Derek Ford and the design is by Greg Chapman. A truly international collaboration on all fronts!

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.

Turning of the Seasons will be released world-wide in November 2022.

Cover Reveal: Songs From a White Heart by Jack Dann (a poetry chapbook)

IFWG is very pleased to reveal the cover of its next chapbook, Songs From a White Heart, a collection of poetry by Jack Dann. This cover needed to be pitched perfectly, as it covered a number of complex themes and fields, and Luke Spooner, once again, did a fantastic job.

Songs From a White Heart will be released worldwide on 3 October 2022. Preorder offers will come out in September.

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.

As he writes in his introduction, “During that initial white hot time of exploration and revelation, I asked a medicine woman to vet the early poems that now make up the spine of this book. I had wanted to publish them in magazines and literary quarterlies, but did not feel comfortable doing so without her permission. She read the poems…and gave me her blessing. And over the long years that followed—long after I had lost touch with those who conducted and participated in the ceremonies I describe—I continued to write poems for this book.”

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.”
