The Publishing Pipeline

The Fandom Fifty by Diane Lee BaronThe next book in Firebringer’s publishing pipeline is The Fandom Fifty by Diane Baron.
The history of Maryland’s SF convention scene is chronicled through interviews and anecdotes from many longtime organizers, guests, and attendees. The Baltimore region is home to a number of popular and enduring SF cons that include Farpoint, Balticon, Shore Leave, and others. The Fandom Fifty is slated for release in mid-2019. Cover art by Todd Brugmans.

In eternity, all stories are timeless.
 
Join gods and mortals in combat against slithering demons in famine-stricken Finland…
 
Witness an unconventional battle of wits as a devious genie tries to outfox a clever robot…
 
Ride with two hapless deliverymen as they stumble upon a frightening ritual to propitiate an ancient and malevolent power…
 
Escape to a remote corner of the globe with a desperate family fleeing an insidious alien invasion…
 
Follow a fraternity pledge as he undergoes an initiation to terror at a local cemetery…
 
The second project in the pipeline is the third volume in our speculative fiction anthology series—Meanwhile in the Middle of Eternity. This collection of sixteen spellbinding tales of SF, fantasy, and the paranormal follows in the tradition of its two predecessors.
 
Our august cadre of storytellers includes returning contributors Daniel Patrick Corcoran, Michael Critzer, Phil Giunta, Susanna Reilly, Stuart Roth, April Welles, Steven H. Wilson, and Lance Woods. Joining us for volume three are Sean Druelinger, Julie Fedon, Christopher Ochs, Bart Palamaro, and Peter Ong.
In addition to magnificent cover art by Michael Riehl, each story will be accompanied by one black and white illustration provided by a team of artists including Mike Riehl, Laura Inglis, and Tim Marron.
 
Meanwhile in the Middle of Eternity is tentatively scheduled for a late 2019 release. For now, you can catch up with the series in paperback or ebook:
   

We’re Just Getting Warmed Up!

Ah, our first blog post on our new website and we’re excited to have you with us!  We hope you’ll take the time to peruse our available titles and get to know our brilliant authors and artists.

So what’s next? We’re working on Meanwhile in the Middle of Eternity, the third volume in our Middle of Eternity speculative fiction anthology series once again edited by Phil Giunta and offering a collection of sensational stories from returning authors Stuart Roth, Susanna Reilly, Daniel Patrick Corcoran, Michael Critzer, Phil Giunta, Lance Woods, April Welles, and our venerable publisher here at Firebringer, Steven H. Wilson. We’ll also welcome several new voices including Julie Fedon, Sean Druelinger, Peter Ong, Christopher Ochs, and Bart Palamaro.

Phil and Steve are planning to release a double horror novel (two books in one) that will combine a vampire novella by Steve called Freedom’s Blood and a paranormal mystery novella by Phil called Like Mother, Like Daughters starring psychic-medium single mom Miranda Lorensen, who has drawn quite a following since her debut in Testing the Prisoner and further adventures in By Your Side. This book will be in the format of the old ACE Doubles where you read one story, then flip the book over to read the other. 

We could not be more fired up about our new look and our upcoming releases. Stay tuned as we bring you more news in the coming weeks and thank you for supporting small press authors!
