UK genre specialist PS Publishing introduces Australian imprint

UK genre press PS Publishing is introducing a new imprint, PS Australia, to publish Australian writers and artists.

PS Publishing founders Pete and Nicky Crowther said they were impressed with the quality and breadth of Australian talent, and ‘want to play a part in showcasing the wonderful work of established Australian writers’.

Australia-based US author Jack Dann has been appointed managing director of PS Australia and has already acquired ‘several projects’, including the anthology Dreaming in the Dark with stories by Alan Baxter, James Bradley, Garth Nix, Angela Slatter, Kim Westwood and Kim Wilkins, among others. Dreaming in the Dark is the third instalment in a series edited by Dann and Australian author and editor Janeen Webb that began with Dreaming Down-Under (HarperCollins).

‘Australian writers are producing some of the best genre fiction in the world,’ said Dann. ‘These books have an agenda: to showcase established Australian writers and promote the emerging talent that is already lighting up the genre—and the country—with promise for the coming years.’

Dreaming in the Dark is expected to be published in Spring, with more information on the imprint’s launch list to come.

PS Publishing specialises in fantasy, science-fiction and horror titles.
