Today is Valentine’s Day, and the official launch date for the second of Superversive Press’ Planetary Anthologies, this time it’s Venus—twenty captivating stories of love, romance, the planet and the goddess (in various guises). It’s well worth a look, and not just at the video above 🙂
Planetary Fiction from Superversive Press kicks off with Mercury: tales of wonder, mystery, trickery, illusion, alchemy, couriers desperate to get through against all odds, teasing promises of power and immortality, meetings with alien intelligences and explorations of weird alternate histories of the closest planet to our Sun.

When otherworldly forces conspire against those she loves, Rachel Griffin must face her most desperate hour.
This on top of winter fairies, lost friends, undeniably attractive older boys, and, oh, a rampaging ogre.
With the imminent launch of the latest book in L. Jagi Lamplighter’s excellent Books of Unexpected Enlightenment series coming up on November 21st, it is time to reveal a little something I put together, an upgraded version of an old promotional video the book used to have. I will be at the launch party on Tuesday, where an all-original promo video I made (including a vocal performance from myself in collaboration with Sarah Koolbeck) will be unveiled, so look forward to that and take this opportunity to introduce yourself to this wonderful series.
Both versions of the song ‘A Tale of the Once and Future King’ are now available for purchase at my cdbaby.com artist page for only 99 cents each. They can both be found by clicking the image below:
In time they should also become available from other online music stores. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did creating them, and they help to prepare the audience for Anthony Marchetta’s upcoming masterpiece.
As if the new version of Sci Phi Journal wasn’t enough, in just three days Superversive Press is going to launch the new Space Opera/Space Romance/Pulp magazine Astounding Frontiers, featuring serialized stories by not one but two Dragon Award winners:
Nowhither, the long-awaited sequel to John C. Wright’s Dragon Award-winning Somewhither,
Galactic Outlaws by Nick Cole and Jason Anspach, Book Two in the Galaxy’s Edge series (Book One being Amazon bestseller Legionnaire)
besides many more fun and imaginative stories by a variety of talented authors, both established and new talent.
Watch out for it, and spread the word!
With the imminent release on Thursday 15th June by Superversive Press of Jon del Arroz’ second novel For Steam and Country, I have dared to produce a promotional video to capture its epicness, with some capable help from Sean McCleery and Shawn King.
Do You See the Crystal Spire?
Do you see the Crystal Spire
That adorns Rislandia?
You’ll want to join the Crystal Knights
To guard her land, her sea, her air.
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the thundering of the guns,
Then you’ll be sure to play your part
When the battle comes.
The invading Wyranth soldiers’ eyes
Emit an eerie glow;
The ground is shaken by a force
Whose source you’d like to know;
So now climb up this rope,
Renew your old hope as we go!
Do you hear the turbines roar
As we soar into the sky?
This great airship offers more
Than just a simple earthbound life.
When the fire within your heart
Mirrors the glorious setting sun,
Then you’ll be sure to play your part
When adventure comes.
The book is currently available for preorder at the bitly shortlink given in the video, but Jon would prefer people to buy on the release date itself so as to maximise the Amazon ranking on day 1, meaning the book becomes more visible within Amazon’s maze of recommendation algorithms.
