JOURNEY INTO THE OCCULT, WHERE HISTORY IS HORROR
Presented in six tales, GRIMOIRE OF THE FOUR IMPOSTORS takes readers on a dark tour of the seventeenth century, where corners of the world stand in shadow. Here grimoires possess secrets, impostors beguile the unwary, temptation turns macabre, and the night is no friend.
“Richly descriptive, hugely atmospheric, these stories blend the occult with folk horror and the gothic. An intelligent and refreshing addition to the world of literary speculative fiction.”
—Stephanie Ellis, Author

Nosetouch Press is proud to announce the release of NORM, the third book in the Wolfshadow Trilogy, on the 10th anniversary of the release of SAAMAANTHAA, the first book in the series. Fans of werewolf fiction will find a lot to like in NORM, with wild horror thriller action that promises to transform lycanthropic fiction forever.
The Wolfshadow Trilogy by D.T. Neal features three werewolf novels, SAAMAANTHAA, THE HAPPENING, and NORM. Starting with a fateful interaction with the werewolf, Ansel Rupino, the title character of SAAMAANTHAA becomes infected with lycanthropy, which she eventually sees as a means of unique artistic expression. This view causes chaos, bloodshed, and death in her life, particularly among her closest friends. It also leads to the infection of Zooey Hummel, who gleefully starts a lycanthropic insurrection in THE HAPPENING. Her infectious revolution tears through both Chicago and the country at large, eventually reaching a climax in NORM, where vicious lycanthropic factions secretly vie for power and influence in a world ravaged by the Lupine epidemic, and Ansel fights for redemption for all the trouble he’s caused, while the title character seeks to end the lycanthropic epidemic for good.
The Wolfshadow Trilogy runs wildly in a world of darkly comic horror, scathing social commentary, pop-cultural references, and horror-thriller territory that will dazzle both casual readers and thrill fans of werewolf fiction everywhere.
OPEN JANUARY 1–31, 2022
With its emphasis on a sublime atmosphere of picturesque scenery, extraordinary and exotic locations, mystery, and horror, Gothic Fiction carved an indelible impression in the literary world. Beginning with Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto in 1764, the Gothic has stalked the literary shadows for centuries, delivering tangled and tortured narratives of family trauma, psychological distress, and terrible secrets.
The terrifying appeal of the Gothic lies within its ability to invoke a pleasing and memorable dread. Nosetouch Press is excited to open a call for a Gothic novel (60,000 words+) or novella (35,000 words+), encouraging writers to delve into the darkness and send us their best work. Previously unpublished work only—no reprints. No YA, poetry, or short story collections. Diverse voices are welcome.
We will not consider stories with excessive gore, splattercore, cosmic horror, exploitation/trauma porn, romance/erotica-centered plots, or child abuse-driven fiction.
