Secret List of Secret Backers of Secret Books of the Masters of the Universe

The Chemical Wedding by Christian Rosencreutz cover On the 10th of May 2016 we launched our first Kickstarter for a series of beautiful hardcovers of John Crowley’s new version of The Chemical Wedding and in the next 25 days 1,299 lovely, lovely people backed it. There were a few people who preferred to be actual Secret Backers so their names are not included here — and if you are a backer and you would like your name removed, please email me or send me a message through Kickstarter.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Early history

Leave a Comment

These posts were written in 2001 and 2004 and are republished here for housekeeping reasons rather than anything else. The links are mostly broken, sorry.

Tiny Magazines Everywhere: Or, Why Do We Still Publish a Zine?

In 2002 we published two books by Carol Emshwiller (a novel, The Mount, and Report to the Men’s Club and Other Stories), a favorite author with six previous books to her name. Last year our first two books (Kelly Link’s Stranger Things Happen and Ray Vukcevich’s Meet Me in the Moon Room) were well received. We are committed to publishing short story collections and novels by authors we feel are slipping through the cracks.

In 1996, long before I ever thought I’d publish any books, I started a small press zine, Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet (LCRW). Whenever I flipped through the magazines at Avenue Victor Hugo Bookshop in Boston, MA, where I worked, I was frustrated that none seemed to have just the right mix (fiction, a spot of poetry, a flash of humor, maybe some art) that I thought would make the perfect magazine. Eleven issues and many long nights at the computer later, LCRW goes from strength to strength.

In 2000, we took our first real step toward publishing books when we published two chapbooks, 4 Stories by Kelly Link and Five
Forbidden Things
by Dora Knez. The chapbooks — deliberately designed as low-priced editions to introduce new writers and give them a step up between publishing stories and books — gave us confidence in our design and production capabilities. At about the same time
we set up a half-decent website (oddly enough, we still have a half-decent website, www.lcrw.net, but it’s larger now) and, with the advent of Paypal, our zine and the chapbooks were suddenly available to anyone . . . who had the urge to look us up.

LCRW and the chapbooks complement our books: they give readers a way to sample our authors without popping for the more expensive books — the zine is only $4, chapbooks $5, and the books $16 — and the zine and chapbook reach very different audiences than our books. Our books are carried by Ingram and Baker & Taylor — our biggest LCRW distributor is Last Gasp.

LCRW also gave us our entrance into the print world. We already had the bookseller’s and consumer’s point of view on books; LCRW showed us the world of bookselling from the supplier’s side. We learned the importance of being nice to busy people who don’t have much time for you, how important small things (ISBNs, design, distribution…!) are, and that a finely-judged persistence is necessary to bring your products to the right people’s attention.

Publishing LCRW taught us (in small affordable steps) marketing, distribution, design, how to work to deadlines, and most of all, the importance of professional proofreaders. In the last couple of years, we have actively encouraged many others to start their own micropublishing houses, and are very happy to report (and sometimes sell the results on our website) that
some few people have taken up the challenge.


The View of History from 2001

Thanks for checking out the Small Beer Press pages. Small Beer Press exists to publish good writing.

We do a twice-yearly small press zine, a couple of chapbooks a year, and in July 2001 we published our first two books, trade paperback
short fiction collections by Kelly Link (Stranger Things Happen) [reviews] and Ray Vukcevich (Meet Me in the Moon Room) [reviews].

Our books can be ordered directly from us but we encourage bookshops to order from distributors. Both titles are available from Baker & Taylor, Ingram, and Consortium, which means you can walk into any bookshop in the land and order them. The books are already listed at Amazon.com, bn.com, and Borders.com. We do hope that you will patronize local bookshops (you can find these online at Bookweb.org and BookSense.com), but, whatever floats your boat.

Kelly Link and Ray Vukcevich are both available for interviews. They can be contacted through us at [email protected]. We are a small press with all that entails (no foreign offices, no expense accounts (boo!), small ad budget, and a decent collection of CDs we actually had to pay for. We appreciate and encourage your interest in the small presses.

A long, blowzy, yet sober — much interrupted and definitely unfinished — look at the genesis and continuance of a small press:

Ray Vukcevich, Meet Me in the Moon RoomSmall Beer Press was begun under a different name in 1996, we renamed it to something that wasn’t a bad joke no one else thought funny in that year of changes, 2000. We intend to publish one or two quality books a year until our money runs out/we lose our day jobs/we get fed up of reading slush. We are mainly powered by Gavin J. Grant who can answer most of your questions.

In publishing our first books we were led to many good decisions and stopped from making too many mistakes by our friend, the late Jenna A. Felice, who is missed more than words can say. Bryan Cholfin (of Crank! and St. Martin’s Press, not in that order) was another invaluable source of publishing and printing knowledge. Would we have found the wonderful people at Thomson-Shore without Jenna and Bryan? No. Would we have set the books in Centaur? Probably not. (Yes, we bought Centaur. You should buy a font too. Even if it’s just a fun, cheap one like Missive — which we bought
at the Paper Source in Cambridge, MA, and used to set the interior titles of Meet Me in the Moon Room.) Many other people answered questions and were generous with their time for which we are immensely grateful. The power in publishing is there for the taking and we encourage you to take it up. Buy an old copy of PageMaker or QuarkXpress on eBay and just go. Our first zines were made using Microsoft Word, it took a while and they aren’t the prettiest things, but we moved up and on. Everything finds its own level. Yours may be handwritten and photocopied, electronically distributed, or typeset by a professional. We say go for it.

Beginning in late 1996, with the publication of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet vol.1 no.1 (volume numbering later dropped for simplicity’s sake and the realization (or, when thinking about it in the UK, the realisation) that it was not appropriate), Small Beer Press has slowly grown from being distributed only within the boroughs of Boston to a small amount of international distribution, decent-selling chapbooks, and now books.

It felt like a well-paced and natural expansion. It is only the larger sums of money that get spent on producing the books that make it a
little more nerve-wracking. However, they are both of such high quality that we are quietly confident that we won’t take a complete bath (maybe a small summer shower) on them.

Stranger Things HappenFrom the very first issue we have tried to publish high quality fiction and we have been helped in our close association with the wonderful writer Kelly Link. Her cornerstone story from the first issue, “Travels with the Snow Queen” won the James Tiptree Jr. Award in 1997 and set the standard for future issues. Recently Ellen Klages story, “Flying Over Water,” from issue no. 7 was on the final Nebula ballot. A number of the stories by such authors as Dora Knez and Sten Westgard have been given honorable mentions in Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling’s The Year’s
Best Fantasy and Horror
series. Kelly Link’s story “Shoe and Marriage” from the chapbook 4
Stories
,
has been nominated for the World Fantasy Award.

Since we only publish twice a year we are very limited in what we can publish. Stories have come to us from authors we have solicited, from people we know, and people we don’t. We encourage people to read the LCRW before submitting because we have very limited space and we know what we want.

Although we had not published Ray Vukcevich before issue no. 8, we had enjoyed his stories in many magazines and anthologies. Then we realized (no ‘s’ this time) that he had been publishing great short fiction for more than ten years and no one had published a collection by him. We jumped at the chance. Seeing Rafal Olbinski’s art on the front just makes it a package we are incredibly proud of. We hope you will enjoy them too.

Questions? Email us and we will probably respond. We are a small, lightly-staffed publishing concern, so if it’s more than a day or two — and believe me if you’re writing from a book shop, paper, magazine, or zine, the answer will be a lot faster! — maybe we are just on vacation (ha! The thought of it!).

Broken Mirrors Press

Leave a Comment

In the 1990s the world was blessed by the appearance of a damn fine magazine named Crank! Due to the usual reasons — ruinous distribution, incredibly high editorial and production standards, a serious lack of personal inherited wealth — it all came to an end with issue no. 8.

We managed to get our hands on some back issues and, being the generous folk we are, we’re offering them to yous folks. No overcharging, no handwringing, nothing but a damn fine read. $5 a pop (including shipping), any two for $9, any three for $13 (lucky for some…), etc., etc. If we can get the missing issues (No. 5 is sold out), we’ll put them up here, too. We’ll occasionally bring them to sell at book fairs or conventions, if that’s your thing.

Broken Mirrors Press also published a number of books. Again, these are the good stuff, high standards, good design, you’ll be more than happy. We think. We expect. We kind of hope. Anyway, browse away:

Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet

No. 22

No. 21

  • “An accomplished magazine. There’s no shortage of ambition amongst the writing on show, and even those stories criticised here have obvious qualities and are the work of demonstrably capable writers. The standard throughout is high and Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet is neither as fey nor as hard to approach as its esoteric name might suggest. This issue contained a number of genuinely memorable stories and some excellent writing. It is a read that is certainly worth your while.”

No. 18

  • “Primarily fiction with some non-fiction and poetry. Literary journal/small press quality; very polished writing. A two-page play I didn’t get, a magic realist piece about souls blowing loose from their bodies on windy days that makes a comment on being on the fringe; a dreamy piece about lost girls and a witch’s garden; something about a train I didn’t get; a darkly funny zombie story about consumer guilt; and poetry I actually understood. That’s just the first half. Well worth the price.”

  • Deborah Roggie’s “The Mushroom Duchess” was on the Fountain Award short list and was reprinted in The Year’s best Fantasy & Horror: 2006, 19th Annual Edition (Gavin Grant, Kelly Link, & Ellen Datlow, eds.)
  • “Number 17 is one of the best issues I’ve seen of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet.Hightlights include Philip Raines & Harvey Welles’s “All the Things She Wanted”, set in a much changed Washington DC, where everyone seems to have (at least potentially) a personal map of a different city. A woman buys a potion that gives her what she wants, at a certain price (first one’s free!) — only to find that the things she wants keep changing. Deborah Roggie’s “The Mushroom Duchess” is a pleasant depiction of a quite monstrous Duchess, whose experiments with mushrooms extend to using them to control her unwanted daughter-in-law in a nasty way. John Brown’s “Bright Waters” is a fine, long story, only barely fantastical, of a rather ugly trader in pre-Revolution America whose efforts to find a wife among the local Indians meets with little success. But things change when he meets a feisty English immigrant, and also gets some magical help from an Indian medicine woman.”

  • Harvey Welles and Philip Raines’s “The Fishie” received an Honorable Mention from the new Fountain Award.
  • Harvey Welles and Philip Raines’s “The Fishie” reprinted in The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror.
  • Home and Security” by Gavin J. Grant was reprinted in the Zine Yearbook Vol. 8
  • “There’s something for everyone within these pages, which include fiction, poetry, non-fiction, a book review, a film review, a few zine reviews, and even a piece that could pass for a visual poem. If anything, you could argue that the zine is a little too eclectic because it doesn’t cohere under any one theme or mood. But these days, who needs coherence?… Many of the stories, like Jan Lars Jensen’s “Happier Days”, at first seem perfect for a lazy, hung-over Sunday afternoon when you may be more receptive to a bit of gold old nostalgia, but then take a weird and welcome twist. Cara Spindler offers some poetic mid-zine relief with her delightful lyricism, and Richard Butner instructs on how to make a proper martini. (There is no such thing as a Choco-Banana Martini.) … This is a good zine to keep in your bag during daily travels.
    Broken Pencil, 23
  • “Rich in elegant prose and startling literary perspectives, Richard Parks demonstrates anew his talent for oriental fables…[with] a medieval-Japanese ghost story with a shock in reserve; Ursula Pflug intones a heartfelt love song to mythic Ireland…; Jan Lars Jensen…haunts his characters with much more recent legends, to alarming effect; and Jennifer Rachel Baumer writes with superb lyricism of very subtle phantoms…. But best of all is “Bay” by David Erik Nelson, a recontextualization of ghosts that is authentically surprising, genuinely horrifying — an extraordinary achievement in a hackneyed subgenre.”
    –Nick Gevers, Locus
  • “A highbrow literary zine that presents fiction, nonfiction, and poetry with beautiful layout and spare but attractive graphics.”
    A Reader’s Guide to the Underground Press, no. 20
  • “Had LCRW #12 been a sheaf of blank pages around “The Fishie,” I still would have felt compelled to give it a good review. But with its usual assortment of quietly compelling fiction hovering somewhere around the nexus of ghost story, fairy tale, folklore, fantasy, and magical realism, Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet continues to define-and redefine-for me why we read, write, and take risks on new writers, new ideas, and new ways. Quality.”

    “The fiction by Nalo Hopkinson and a hilarious short story by Kelly Link about beauty queens are impressive. The poetry ranges from good to fair, but the zine has some interesting nonfiction pieces as well. Naoko Takahashi’s observations on Japan’s culture and media are fascinating. A debate about the death penalty by Gavin J. Grant is excellent. Fiction and zine reviews, too. Nicely presented.”
