Awards Season

Awards season has well and truly started and we hope you will forgive us a moment of vanity as we ask for your support.

Our own Joan De La Haye (Shadows, Requiem in E Sharp, Oasis, Burning) is up for an award in the South African Indies for ‘Burning’. We couldn’t be prouder and if you had a moment to support that would be very wonderful of you. Voting is open now.


Also at the moment the British Fantasy Society are taking suggestions for their shortlist. We were surprised and delighted to be shortlisted for Best Anthology and Best Small Press last year and if you like what we are doing we would be really pleased* to have your nomination this year.

* massive understatement.

You can check out when our books were published here.

Crime in the Fox Den

Although Fox Spirit is probably more associated with Fantasy, SF and Horror, we do love a bit of crime. No cozy mysteries here though, the emphasis is on dark.

Requiem in E Sharp by Joan De La Haye

A troubled detective

A tormented serial murderer

Sundays in Pretoria are dangerous for selected women.

A murderer plagued by his childhood, has found a distinctive modus operandi to salve his pathological need to escape the domination of the person who was supposed to cherish him.

Requiem Cover

For fans of serial killer crime and procedural. We know fairly early who dunnit, the real question is who will make it to the end of the book and how will the killer be caught. Set in South Africa Joan uses the corruption in the system and the setting to spin a grim tale of a ruthless murderer.

Extricate & Other Stories by Graham Wynd

EXTRICATE is a violent tale of sexual obsession, unfolding on the dark streets of a nowhere town. Peter falls for Judy the instant he lights her cigarette, but she’s his best mate’s girl — and he’s already married. He decides to begin removing obstacles — starting with his wife. How far will he be willing to go? How far does lifelong friendship go when he finally meets the woman of his peculiar dreams?

Extricate Throw the Bones Dual Cover


Extricate is available on its own as an ebook and coming soon with a second novella and some additional short stories.

This is a collection of noir crime kicking off with a sexy tale of lust, murder and betrayal.

White Rabbit by K.A.Laity

White Rabbit is a noir crime novel with a supernatural twist for fans of crime with a little extra twist.

Sometimes the shadows that haunt us 
           are what lead us back to the light
Disgraced former police detective James Draygo has sunk as low as his habit allows, working as a fake psychic despite his very real talents. When a media mogul’s trashy trophy wife gets gunned down at his tapping table he has to decide whether he can straighten up long enough to save his own skin. He may not have a choice with Essex’s loudest ghost bawling in his ear about cults, conspiracies and cut-rate drugs. Oblivion sounds better all the time…
White Rabbit

White Rabbit will be hopping onto Amazon as a paperback any hour now so get your copy and burrow in with this noir tale of murder and the supernatural.
