About Alliteration Ink: Alliteration Ink is a small publisher from Dayton, Ohio. They have published over 16 original and award-winning anthologies, collections, and novels. Notable examples include the twice-nominated Eighth Day Genesis as a worldbuilding guide for writers and gamemasters, the award-winning Steampunk World, and genre-twisting anthologies such as Not Our Kind, What Fates Impose, and Streets of Shadows.

With a commitment to treating authors fairly, Alliteration Ink has spearheaded ethical standards for crowdfunding in publishing, as well as making their base contracts public and exposing scams.

Just as importantly, Alliteration Ink is dedicated to publishing “stories that take chances”. Owner Steven Saus explains: “When I started, anthologies were considered really risky. Since we’ve demonstrated that anthologies can be profitable, we’re focusing on telling and publishing stories that take risks, that don’t fit neatly into categories. From The Crimson Pact shared-world without a shared-world anthologies, through Dangers Untold which has no ‘traditional’ monsters, and the genre bending offerings in Sidekicks! and Not Our Kind, I’ve really enjoyed being able to bring these unique stories into the world.”

Alliteration Ink has more plans for the upcoming year before Imaginarium 2016, including launching a periodical and several new anthologies. There are currently calls for submissions for the first two – Steampunk Universe and No Sh!t, There I Was.

Imaginarium 2016 Proudly Welcomes Charon Coin Press as an Official Sponsor

Imaginarium 2016 is proud to welcome Charon Coin Press as the latest member of our sponsor family. With increasing awareness of its State of Horror anthology series, Charon Coin Press is a fantastic publisher of speculative fiction that we are proud to have with us as an official sponsor for the third year of the nation’s premier creative writing convention.

CCP_WhtBack_Web

About Charon Coin Press: Charon, the mythical ferryman of the river Styx, pay him your coin and he would take you across the river to the underworld. Seems only fitting to name a press that will take readers on journeys through new worlds, horrifying minds, trips through the dark side, after such a creature. Charon Coin Press is a publisher of speculative fiction– a term encompassing a variety of genres from fantasy to horror, science fiction to supernatural stories, superheroes to apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic fiction, even historical fiction. What matters to us is a good story.

We here at Charon Coin Press are first and foremost lovers of books. We are avid readers and love nothing more than to be wrapped up in fantastical tales taking us away from our own mundane worlds. Our first foray into the world of speculative fiction was through horror. At a young age, masters like Clive Barker, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, and Anne Rice pulled us into their world and kept us craving for more. As we continued our quest for stories we found some amazingly talented independent authors. These writers would weave their stories into an imaginative tapestry which called to us, drawing our attention, keeping us engaged.

As we became involved in the State of Horror Anthology, we realized how much talent and creativity there is out there waiting to be discovered, waiting to get into the hands of anxious readers like us. Our vision became clear, becoming a mission-to produce quality works of speculative fiction with the readers in mind by creating a connection, a relationship if you will, with these fantastic authors.

Our goal is to help support authors reach the readers with their wonderful stories. Currently we offer full editing services, and graphic designs to help with the release process. As we grow, we plan to have a full line of resources available to the writing community through our network in order to connect with readers. Our goal is to forge a link between readers looking for a great story and the authors creating the stories.

So whether it is a short story collection, novella, or full-length novel, we here at Charon Coin Press, are dedicated to making connections and ferrying you through this enjoyable journey of speculative fiction.
