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

Now available for pre-order is Nicholas Day's debut novel and literary-horror masterpiece, GRIND YOUR BONES TO DUST.

A surveyor finds himself pursued by flesh-eating donkeys in the furthest reaches of Oregon’s desert, a mass-murderer leaves the sanctity of his mountain home to pursue a long-lost love, two estranged childhood friends set off to find a missing father, and a prisoner in her own home sees a vision of death and knows there is no escape.

What Does Excession Press Want?

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
  • William Gibson
  • Jeremy Robert Johnson
  • Flannery O'Connor
  • Mieko Kanai
  • Chuck Palahniuk
  • Octavia Butler
  • Joe Hill
  • Brian Evenson
  • K. J. Bishop
  • Philip K. Dick
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.
