Countdown to Liftoff

We’re having a busy and exciting time in the Erewhon office. We’re preparing to launch our first season of books with our excellent distributor Workman, which means it’s time to put together a newsletter for the folks who wish to follow us. We’ve added you to the list because you have attended an event in our space or you asked to be added, but if you don’t want to receive emails from us, you can unsubscribe using the link at the bottom.

We were quite excited to finally be able to announce our first few books. In 2020, we’ll be bringing you exciting speculative fiction projects from Benjamin Rosenbaum, Hannah Abigail Clarke, J. M. Lee, S. A. Jones, and more. Stay tuned for more information about these books, and others to follow soon.

One of our newly announced titles is an anthology of science fiction and fantasy roleplaying games that our publisher Liz Gorinsky will be selecting and editing. This anthology will contain both new commissioned games and reprints, and cover a range of game styles (tabletop, larp, and hybrid forms).

We’re doing an open call for submissions for this project. You can find more information on what we’re looking for, as well as a link to the submission form, over here. We hope to see games from some of you!

So far, we have hosted three successful and thought-provoking literary salons in our glorious office space, and we are excited to continue doing so. Our salons feature author readings, but they are also a space for our community to gather, a chance to talk and relax and play with speculative fiction fans and beyond.

The next salon, on Thursday, March 7, features readers Angus McIntyre and Keffy R. M. Kehrli. Visit this page to see event information and policies and RSVP. Event address and information will be emailed to those who have RSVPed a few days before the event.
