We mean to take risks.

 

Founded in 2011 by Blake Hausladen, Rook Creek Books is a small press publisher of fantasy adventure and science fiction for authors of non-traditional forms, styles, or content not popularized by mainstream fiction. This wild place will be an arena for spec-fic and genre-bending anomalies.

Explorers wanted. Apply within.

Open Submissions

Rook Creek Books is open to submissions for the Dark Reflections shared world--a dark retro fantasy hidden in the many layers of the Dark Reflections collection by Jeff Lee Johnson.

King's Bridge

Our imprint for high-risk professionals to publish and receive creative direction and development while protecting their interests, long-standing agreements, and anonymity.
