Volume 1: Seventh Child

September Weekes discovers a stone that takes her to Gwlad, where she is hailed as the one with the power to defend them against the evil known as the Malevolence. September meets the people’s leader, the Mordeyrn Aurddolen, and the bearers of the seven metals linked to the seven ‘planets’ that give them special powers to resist the elemental manifestations of the Malevolence. She returns home, but a fortnight later, is drawn back to find that two years have passed and there have been more attacks. She must help defend Gwlad against the Malevolence.

Volume 2: The Power of Seven

Having reached Arsyllfa, September is re-united with the Mordeyrn Aurddolen with whom, together with the other senior metal bearers that make up the Council of Gwlad, she must plan the defence of the Land.

The time of the next Conjunction will soon be at hand. The planets, the Sun and the Moon will all be together in the sky. At that point the protection of the heavenly bodies will be at its weakest and Gwlad will be more dependent than ever on September. But now it seems that she must defeat Malice, the guiding force behind the Malevolence, if she is to save the Land and all its people. Will she be strong enough; and, if not, to whom can she turn for help?

Seventh Child was published in a digital edition on 2nd January 2015 and The Power of Seven on 30th January 2015 – they will be launched in paperback together at Dysprosium.

The Janus Cycle can best be described as gritty, sexy, surreal, urban fantasy.

Janus is a nightclub. But it’s not merely a location, it’s virtually a character in its own right. On the surface it appears to be a subcultural hub where the strange and disillusioned, who feel alienated and oppressed by society, can escape to be free from convention. Underneath that façade is a surreal space in time where the very foundations of reality can be twisted and distorted. But the special, unique, vibe of Janus is hijacked by a bandwagon of people who choose to conform to alternative lifestyles simply because it has become fashionable to be ‘different’ and this causes many of its original occupants to feel lost and disenchanted.

The story unfolds through the eyes of eight narrators, each with their own perspective and their own personal journey. A story in which the nightclub itself goes on a journey. But throughout, one strange girl briefly appears and reappears, warning the narrators that their individual journeys are going to collide in a cataclysmic event. Is she just another one of the nightclub’s denizens, a cynical mischief-maker out to create havoc or a time-traveller trying to prevent an impending disaster?

The Janus Cycle was published in a digital edition on 2nd January 2015 and will be launched in paperback at Dysprosium.

Douglas ThompsonOur very own Douglas Thompson will be leading an ‘In Process Masterclass’ for the Scottish Writers’ Centre in Glasgow, on Tuesday 27th October 2015 at 7pm. Douglas is one of Glasgow’s most original exponents of dark surreal fiction. Described as “a name to watch” by Interzone magazine Douglas has published eight books of which Elsewhen Press have published two: Entanglement and The Rhymer, an Heredyssey. He will also be launching his ninth book, The Sleep Corporation (Exaggerated Press) at the masterclass.

The evening is billed as a diverse and unorthodox exploration of the art of writing from the perspective of someone implacably opposed to the sameness and complacency of major commercial publishers. Sounds like fun!

Existence is Elsewhen, our fantastic new anthology is available from 18th March 2016 as an eBook. It will be published in print on 25th March 2016, and launched at Mancunicon.

The title, Existence is Elsewhen, paraphrases the last sentence of André Breton’s 1924 Manifesto of Surrealism, perfectly summing up the intent behind this anthology of stories from a wonderful collection of authors. Different worlds… different times. It’s what Elsewhen Press has been about since we launched our first title in 2011.

In Existence is Elsewhen we present twenty science fiction stories for you to enjoy, one from each of the following twenty great authors:
