We at Founders House Publishing are gearing up for 2015 and would like to announce the first of our upcoming new titles, After Oil 2: The Years Of Crisis.  This is the second volume of short stories edited by John Michael Greer. The book's release date is January 16, 2015. Check back for updates on this and other new releases from Founders House Publishing.

Description: John Michael Greer, author and host of the popular weekly peak-oil blog, The Archdruid Report, returns with another collection of twelve tales of the post-oil future. As Industrial civilization staggers beneath its myriad disfunctions, ordinary people  endure the long, slow decline that shapes the years of crisis. The old world passes away an a new age takes shape.

News, Updates, and Open Submissions

SUBMISSIONS POLICY CHANGE

Previously, our submissions policy involved set reading periods. That worked fine, but we at Founders House Publishing have decided to keep out submissions open to authors interested in submitting their works of fiction (and, in some cases, nonfiction). At this time, we will also be accepting short story collections as well as essay collections. The editors at FHP like to see science, fiction, fantasy, and other genres are welcome as well. Be advised that our policies may change so stay updated on our latest.

UPCOMING ANTHOLOGIES

Additionally, we are pleased announced that in partnership with John Michael Greer, we will be releasing two new After Oil anthologies. The first will be titled After Oil 2: The Years of Crisis while the second will be called After Oil 3: The Years of Rebirth. Expect to see posts on cover reveals, publication dates, and other announcements in the coming weeks.

A BOOK HUNT

Founders House is also on the lookout for previously published books that have gone out of print in a variety of genres. In particular, we are looking at nonfiction titles that deal with issues of appropriate technology and sustainability. We are looking for select works and are even considering collections of shorter works that compliment one another. If you wrote a book and now find it out of print we would be interested in hearing from you, especially if you've written in the two areas just mentioned. The same is true if you own the rights to such a work.

We are also looking for works that may have fallen into the public domain and would like the opportunity to reissue these titles for current audiences. Any information that could be provided to our editorial staff would be appreciated. Please direct your messages to info [at] foundershousepublishing.com or use our contact form.
