I agree and I want to highlight some of the very best of these independent horror publishers. In the past, I have tried to be inclusive and include as many as possible, but I found that this resulted in a list that was too long to be useful to the average American public library as a collection development and purchasing tool. And since that is the whole reason I am here....
I have narrowed the focus of this page to include only the horror independent presses I have found to produce a consistent product worthy of being considered for your public library collections.
So please visit the pages of these publishers and consider ordering some of their books for your patrons.
Here they are in alphabetical order:
- Apex Publications
- Bloodshot Books
- Cemetery Dance Publications
- ChiZine Publications
- Crystal Lake Publishing
- Dark Arts Books
- Deadite Press
- Flame Tree Press
- Necro Publications
- Night Shade Books
- Permuted Press
- Raw Dog Screaming Press [they publish all formats, but their horror poetry is top notch!]
- Sinister Grin
- Trepidatio Publishing [an imprint of JournalStone]
- Worde Horde
- Written Backwards
If you are a horror publisher and want to be include here, contact me.
