The foundations for Egaeus Press were laid in the cold English summer of 2011 in the dreamclutter of a childish melancholia – a nursery room agoraphobia compelling us to recall the anguished ticks of broken clockwork, the smell of curdled milk, the image of a songbird’s funeral on the tobacco-dry pages of an antique scrapbook … We are moved by the concept of the world as a haunted house, and by the paradox of all life’s darkest fears and most ecstatic wonders being essentially one and the same.
Eibonvale Press is a small press run by a writer, artist and reader who loves books – It’s as simple as that. It aims to produce beautiful and lovingly-designed editions of excellent writing in modern horror, magic realism and the surreal.
Ex Occidente Press
Ex Occidente Press is an independent publishing house from that doubtful place that was once called “la Porte de l’Orient” by travellers, seers and esoterists, generals and freemasons, poets and spies, prostitutes and rakes, salon artists and theologians, but which is known nowadays under the name of Bucharest. Ex Occidente Press specialises in rara et nova fiction of the supernatural, the odd and the weird, the strange and the decadent, the fantastic and the obscure, the very holy and the luxuriously heretical.
Gray Friar Press is based in Dracula’s Whitby, literally around the corner from where Bram Stoker was staying when he was thinking about that character’s dramatic arrival on the town’s coastline. There must be something in the water…
We are a small imprint primarily dedicated to publishing works of an eclectic and rarefied nature: to use a quote from elsewhere we wish for spiritual art – Decadence, Esoterica and Symbolism.
The publishing arm of D.F. Lewis!
Salt now publishes around thirty new books per year. Over 80% of our revenue is made from our fiction list, the rest is divided between our poetry publishing and our non-fiction titles. Just over a quarter of our total income is now derived from our anthology publishing, centred on The Best British Short Stories and The Best British Poetry. Salt is expanding this series of Best Ofs to include The Best British Fantasy in 2013. This new list has already brought Salt international attention and has led to the company working with some of the most important British authors writing today. We are expanding this publishing with further important anthologies each season.

Apparitions was a finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award.
