Darkwater Syndicate turns ten on April 30th. Ten! Can you believe it? We've come a long way since we organized our company back in 2008. In our early years, we were a quirky webzine promising "new stories each week; bad poetry or drawings otherwise." And while we had a good run as a webzine, it was only natural that we would evolve to become a publisher of fine indie books.
Since then, we've branched out to publish sci-fi, thrillers, and horror. We've made a quite a name for ourselves in horror, particularly, with our large selection of horror titles. Want a slasher? You got it in Simon Petersen's Slasher Sam. Want something paranormal? Try Michael Warriner's The Man in the Forest. Fancy a pulpy occult read? Nicholas Paschall's The Father of Flesh and Travails for Teyuna are sure to satisfy. And if you want horror short stories, look no further than our award-winning Shadows and Teeth horror series.
To celebrate our ten years in business and to thank you, dear readers, for your continued support, we're working on something special. That's right—it's our tenth birthday, but you get the presents. It's our great pleasure to introduce you to Postcards from the Void, our most ambitious project yet.
It's an innovative new horror anthology about shunned and abandoned places that do not exist—complete with photographs. Yes, you read that correctly: photographs of shunned places that don't exist. Postcards from the Void will combine some of the best names in contemporary horror—Guy N. Smith, Adam Millard, and Nicholas Paschall to name just three—with vintage photographs to send the fear factor to eleven.
