What the hell is Sygasm?
About 20 years ago I was walking home one evening thinking I’d really like to produce a magazine dedicated to imaginative fiction… and the name Sygasm popped into my head from absolutely nowhere.
I wasn’t really sure what it meant, but I thought the name stood out. Nothing came of the magazine. I was too young, too inexperienced and too skint to make it happen. But the project has stayed with me ever since.
Fast forward to 2016, and now I have the ways and means to create what I originally wanted to do a long time ago, if not in a slightly different format.
For the last year or two so, Sygasm has been the nominal name for my self-publishing efforts. Recently, however, I decided to expand Sygasm publishing into an imaginative fiction anthology series, which you can find here on its Facebook group page:
I will be collating a series of cross-genre stories for each volume – being responsible for all the formatting, typesetting (some editing), cover design, marketing and promotion.
Submissions are now open!
This has led to the possibility of Sygasm now offering publishing services to authors who want their work out there in printed and electronic form. In effect, Sygasm has become a publishing house for independent authors.
If there are any authors or anthologists out there with a novel they want publishing, or who needs a cover, or help with editing and typesetting, then Sygasm can do all that for you. At a price of course!
