Immanion Press was founded in 2003, led by author Storm Constantine. The idea initially was to publish Storm Constantine's back catalogue novels, but it quickly became obvious that there were many other avenues to explore!
Based in Stafford UK, IP publishes horror, fantasy and science fiction novels by new and established authors. The company was formed after thousands of requests from Storm's own fans who couldn't get hold of books in her back catalogue. Now she wants to do the same for other authors, as well as showcase exciting new talent.
We began publishing fantasy writer Freda Warrington's back catalogue work in 2004, and are on the lookout for other authors -- see Potential Authors note below -- who want to get their new or out-of-print works in circulation for a new generation of readers. We have already published back catalog books by Ian Watson and Michael Moorcock.
Our past schedule has included a large number of Storm Constantine works. This includes the re-publication of Storm's first Wraeththu trilogy: "The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit," "The Bewitchments of Love and Hate" and "The Fulfilments of Fate and Desire," and continued with the UK editions of her new Wraeththu trilogy: "The Wraiths of Will and Pleasure," "The Shades of Time and Memory" and "The Ghosts of Blood and Innocence." Her stand-alone SF novel "Hermetech" was re-published in 2004. In addition, IP has been publishing Wraeththu Mythos novels, which are stories set in the same world, but by different authors. The first of these was 'Breeding Discontent' by Wendy Darling and Bridgette Parker, published in 2003, and in 2005 IP brought out Terzah's Sons, by Victoria Copus.
Books associated with the Wraeththu role-playing game, were launched by IP in 2004.
In addition to our fiction titles, we have developed a nonfiction list, publishing cutting-edge esoteric titles. The nonfiction line was kicked off by the 2004 publication of Taylor Ellwood's controversial "Pop Culture Magick" (recently released as a second revised edition). More titles followed, and Taylor was appointed the managing editor over Megalithica Books, Immanion Press' nonfiction imprint.
Since then, the Megalithica imprint has included a wide variety of well-received books on esoteric topics. In addition to Taylor's other books, including "Space/Time Magic", "Inner Alchemy" and "Multi-Media Magic", titles from a number of previously unpublished authors were brought on board. These talented magicians and writers, including (but not limited to) Tony Mierzwicki, Lupa, and Frater Barrabbas, took the opportunities offered to them by Immanion/Megalithica and flourished.
Additionally, we have worked with previously published authors. Some, such as Brandy Williams and Joshua Wetzel, offered up new, revised editions of some of their best works. Others, including Nick Farrell and Erynn Rowan Laurie, gave us brand-new works, never before published. And there are those along the lines of Bill Whitcomb and Gerald del Campo, who have offered us a bit of both.
We're gaining notoriety as a publisher of innovative esoteric anthologies as well. Our first experiment--no pun intended--was the 2007 "Magick on the Edge: An Anthology of Experimental Magick" edited by Taylor Ellwood. This was followed up a year later by his "Manifesting Prosperity: A Wealth Magic Anthology", and "The Pop Culture Grimoire" less than a year after that. Lupa has been busy editing anthologies as well, presenting "Talking About the Elephant: An Anthology of Neopagan Perspectives on Cultural Appropriation" (Nov. 2008), "Engaging the Spirit World: Shamanism, Totemism and Other Animistic Practices" (2009) and "Digging Up the Ostrich's Head: Animal Sacrifice in Modern Pagan Practices" (2010).

While we aim to support exciting new writers in the fantasy/dark fantasy genres, we are only interested in work that is fresh and innovative. In terms of submissions, IP expects professional levels of grammar, spelling, punctuation and manuscript format.
The same applies to esoteric non-fiction. We are looking for intelligent, thought-provoking works, free of New Age fluff, unless it's dark or a black comedy about the New Age revolution.
Writers wishing to submit new, previously unpublished works, please visit our Submissions section for information on how to go about this.
For those who are interested in re-releasing previously published works, please Contact Us.
