About Us

We are a small online publisher and blog, Veteran owned and operated.

Being a small, independent press, we get to focus on a blend of genres.  We don’t just look to publish any horror or sci-fi, we hunt for the literate horror and the fantastic.  Our picks are curated to meet the standards of fine literature.

Blog Creator and Publisher, Willy Martinez:

Throughout my education, I have always been attracted to the metaphysical; this small press and blog is my exploration of the why, how, and where the horror, science fiction, and fantastic are crafted.

I began my writing career in 1st grade when I scrapped together a short fiction called, “Caveman Will”.  In 8th grade I was introduced to Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle” and began reading voraciously. During my Sophomore year in highschool I picked up fiction and poetry writing.  Soon, I would submit a short story for the Fenton High School paper called “Alberto and I’, a story about a troubled teen with a best friend.

After Highschool graduation on Friday, I immediately began my college studies that following Monday.  I began by taking a writing class and science fiction course, however, I did not yet have a focus.  About a year into my studies at the community college, I decided that if I wanted to be a writer, I need to travel, to challenge myself, and to see the world.  So I did what some young men with a wanderlust do… and I joined the Marines in 2002.

After I was Honorably discharged in 2004, I began studying at College of DuPage.  I received an A.A.S. in multimedia.  I then transferred to SIU and moved to Southern Illinois around 2008.  I completed my Bachelors in English, in 2010.  In May of 2018, I graduated with my Masters in Rhetoric and Composition, which falls under the English program.

Throughout all of my travels, studies, and adventures, I have always kept a journal of my readings and reflections. I have collected over 800 books ranging from Egyptology, War History, Autobiographies, to metaphysical books. I consider myself more of a curator of fiction than I would a writer of fiction.  However, I do write expressively and persuasively to promote anthologies. I love working with other writers to help them get their works out into the hands of the world’s bibliophiles.
