Starwarp Concepts is a publisher and packager of dark-fiction books and graphic novels for middle grade, young adult, and adult readers, with an emphasis on tales of urban fantasy and horror.
Founded in 1993, the company first gained attention—and critical acclaim—with the release of Lorelei, a Mature Readers comic book series about a woman who, through supernatural means, is transformed into a succubus: a demon who uses her seductive powers to take the souls of evil men and women.
Today, Starwarp Concepts blazes a new trail by entering the book market. The Saga of Pandora Zwieback—a Young Adult dark-fantasy novel series—Lorelei graphic novels, and illustrated classics are just the beginning. Some books we’ll be publishing; others we might be packaging for other publishers. Most will be available from brick-and-mortar bookstores, online retailers, and comic book shops; a few will be available exclusively from our Web site, or at the comic book shows, horror conventions, and book fairs we attend.
Look: We know that, with the advances in print-on-demand publishing these days, small-press publishers are a dime a dozen. What separates the exemplary from the commonplace is the quality of the titles they release.
At Starwarp Concepts, we’re committed to producing quality projects. The talent we hire—from writers to cover artists, illustrators to photographers—are some of the best in the business. And our design staff has years of experience. Sure, we might not have the kind of budgets the bigger kids have, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the publishing magic.
Great stories and good-looking books for readers who like a sharper edge to their fiction—not too much to ask for, is it?
