Submissions are Closed

We want to thank everyone for participating in our open submissions period this year. We saw an enormous response and we're very excited. Unfortunately, this also means that it's going to take us longer than normal to process everything. Please be patient with us, as we're a small operation, but feel free to reach out if you have questions or concerns.

Thank you!
Karl and Whitney Fischer

Last Chance for Customized Pre-Orders!

We are dangerously close to releasing GRIND YOUR BONES TO DUST (Oct. 10th). When that happens, two things will occur simultaneously:

(1) The world will know what Nicholas Day has done and he will finally pay for his transgressions.

(2) You will NO LONGER have the option to purchase a lovingly-customized version of this book for the ridiculously low price of $13.99.

The only way to get a copy with the author's own artwork is by going to our website and pre-ordering the book before its release date.

That's it, friends. Think it over.

Grind Your Bones to Dust Now Available for Pre-Order

What do any of us want? A home? Social acceptance? Kitchen-fresh tamales delivered straight to our door for one low monthly fee?

We don't have answers like that. But here's a list, in no particular order, of authors we admire with books and stories we'd like to see more of in the world.
  • Iain Banks
  • Katherine Dunn
  • Stephen Graham Jones
  • China MiĆ©ville

Armed with this knowledge, we feel confidant that you can answer the age-old question: "what does Excession Press want?"

And if you don't see a name on here that you feel deserves immediate addition - run (don't walk) to the keyboard and sock it to us. Not a joke.
