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.

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.
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.
Available at the following:
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 Miéville
- 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.
