Editorial Focus

Apocalypse Party is on the lookout for challenging books that push boundaries and defy convention. They are as interested in mood, sensation, and altered states of perception as they are in story. They like stories with the ethereal quality of memory filtered through a psychedelic kaleidoscope. They want profoundly bleak narratives that are cognitively demanding, often ambiguous, and emotionally poignant. Surprise them. Use your unique voice to draw them into your distinctive linguistic landscape.
