Science Fiction and Horror Publishers

This is a list of of small-press publishers (including micro-presses) that release work in the science fiction and horror genres. Speculative and fantasy are listed as bonuses if the publisher also mentioned that they released work in those genres as well.

This is not a comprehensive list. I do not list publishers that release only new editions of old work.

I’m also sure there’s someone I’ve forgotten. So feel free to chime in below with your input.

It is up to you to follow through and find out if these publishers are accepting unsolicted works.
