New Release: Drive, She Said, and Other Stories by Tracie McBride

Drive, She Said Book Cover

It is with pleasure that we can announce the UK and Australian release of Melbourne-based author, Tracie McBride’s collection of short fiction titled ‘Drive, She Said, and Other Stories’. “What attracted IFWG to Tracie’s short fiction,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director, “wasn’t just the quality and weirdness/darkness of her narrative. It was the collection itself, that centred female characters in each and every story. Something different, something compelling.” We welcome Tracie to IFWG’s fold, confident that her work will be greeted with a great response to this horror collection.

The magnificent artwork and cover design was rendered by IFWG regular, Keely Van Order.

A collection of horror and dark fantasy short stories.

The themes and settings are diverse, but one common thread runs through the stories—they all feature women.

Women as protagonists. Women as doomed heroines. Woman as villains. Mothers and spinsters, wives and prostitutes, sisters and witches.

And in some stories, monsters in feminine form.

The collection will be released in North America on the 1st April 2020, through our International imprint – it is available for preorder through various outlets.

New Book Signing: The Year of the Fruitcake by Gillian Polack

IFWG Publishing is delighted to announce the acquisition of Gillian Polack’s science fiction novel, The Year of the Fruitcake. The novel tells of the Earth-based life of a mostly-mindwiped alien anthropologist inhabiting a human perimenopausal body instead of her own more rational body with its capacity to change gender. Polack describes her novel as, “Bleak. It’s political. It’s angry. It’s also sarcastic, cynical and funny.”

And we agree. “We have never read anything like this novel, and we believe readers will be entranced by it,” commented Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG.

The Year of the Fruitcake will be released in the first quarter of 2019.
