Early ReviewersNewCon Press

NewCon Press is a multiple award-winning independent publisher specialising in science fiction, fantasy, dark fantasy and horror. Founded in 2006 by author and editor Ian Whates, NewCon Press has established a reputation for quality, working with some of genre fiction’s best known names as well as with exciting new voices.

NewCon produces signed limited edition hardback, paperback, and eBook editions, and we are never frightened to showcase the talents of debut authors alongside those of more established writers. In 2015, we launched sister imprint Steel Quill books, featuring genre-related non-fiction and other projects that fall outside our normal remit.

Whether through novels, novellas, anthologies, or single author collections, NewCon Press remains determined to stay at the forefront of speculative fiction in the UK and beyond, willing to venture where traditional publishing houses dare not go.
