Everything Brain Jar Press published in our first twelve months.
If you love science fiction and fantasy and an interest in building your won writing career, now's your chance to get to know the work of Peter M. Ball and Brain Jar Press. Featuring two story collections, one collection of essays, and the first release in the Brain Jar Press Short Fiction Lab series, this box set celebrates our first birthday by bringing together everything we released in a single, convenient package.
Peter's Aurealis Award-nominated debut collection, The Birdcage Heart and Other Strange Tales, features twelve tales of fantasy, magic realism, and horror, including the coming of age tales featuring piratez and zombies, The Last, Great House of Isla Tortuga, the slipstream wonder of On The Destruction of Copenhagen by the War Machines of the Merfolk, and the eternal staircase of L'esprit de L'escalier.
The second collection, Not Quite The End of the World Just Yet, features thirteen science fiction and slipstream stories, including the baroque cyberpunk of Clockwork, Patchwork, and Ravens, and the futuristic western of Dying Young.
The non-fiction collection, You Don't Want To Be Published, includes sixteen essays about the writing life, starting with the seemingly contradictory advice about being published that can help you become a happier, more focused writer.
Finally, the two releases from the Short Fiction Lab: two short, strange stories that experiment with the spaces between fantasy and other genres.
