Black Spot Books Launches

Black Spot Books, a small-press publisher specializing in speculative fiction, has announced its launch, effective this month. The publisher anticipates publishing its first releases in summer 2018 including two currently-scheduled titles, Peril in the Old Country by Sam Hooker and And Then There Were Crows by Alcy Leyva. The press's owner and publisher, Lindy Ryan, expects to continue a "monthly release cadence" going forward, which would make the publisher's yearly list roughly 12 titles deep. The company has partnered with Smith Publicity for publicity purposes, and its books will be distributed by Ingram.
