A Word From The Editor

Every publisher has moments in the company’s business which are defining. Often, it is when a book is published that has the magical combination of quality production and an interest to the general public – or a keen interest to a select reader group. In April, we will have the latter.

Last year IFWG Publishing Australia had the fortune to meet with internationally respected genre author, Robert Hood, and the conversation quickly turned to all matters horror – which he has a keen interest in, and has written extensively. He has a particular love for ghost and zombie stories.

As if our paths were meant to intersect, we got excited about the idea of publishing his complete catalogue of ghost stories, which spans nearly 30 years, as many of his tales are now inaccessible from earlier anthologies and magazines. To make a long story short, we agreed to carry out this project, and we are now at the ‘business end’ of the process. We announced a few days ago our intention to publish the 2-volume print and ebooks, titled Peripheral Visions, in April 2015, along with a massive single-volume hardcover. Additionally, we have also offered a great price for a limited edition, signed copy of the hardcover, with a bonus, and significant, chap-ebook.

Peripheral Visions is a special book – a defining product – for IFWG Publishing, and we intend to continue to produce this level of quality material in the future.

I am also pleased to announce that in the next few weeks we will be publishing The Andromedans, by Elizabeth Lang, the third in the 4-volume series, The Empire. This series is great space opera, with touches of romance, and has been one of our more successful lines since we began publishing. I can say, as editor of this latest instalment (and backed up by our proofreader), that this is clearly her best work yet. Having said this, a contributor to the impact of her novel is the accumulation of quality character development and world-building in the previous two novels, which are features of her work. I strongly advise you to read all three novels – it is well worth your time.
