About

Grimscribe Press is the fruition of editor/author Jon Padgett's longtime dream of creating a publication house dedicated to the work of Thomas Ligotti and the authors who have influenced and been influenced by him.

Issue 1 of the Grimscribe Press' flagship project, Vastarien: A Literary Journal, was released earlier this year to universal praise and fanfare, and issue 2 is also available.

Vastarien is a source of critical study and creative response to the corpus of Thomas Ligotti as well as associated authors and ideas. Its spirit is captured by a key passage from Ligotti’s classic short story “Vastarien,” telling of a special book that embodies an impossible otherworld... "Nightmare Made Normal."

The journal includes nonfiction, literary horror fiction, poetry, artwork, and non-classifiable hybrid pieces. Public interest and support have proved to be intense and widespread.

Plans for Vastarien and Grimscribe Press:
  • Create a stable revenue source for the creation of publications in 2020 and beyond.
  • More artwork per issue of Vastarien.
  • Greater promotion of our publications.
  • Ensure that our writers and artists continue to receive pro rates.
  • The creation and publication of additional Ligottian publications.

This is where we need your help. The original Kickstarter campaign only covered our costs through the end of 2018, and subscriptions/royalties only pay for so much. Patreon donations will allow Grimscribe Press to continue publishing Vastarien and allow for further growth into 2020 and beyond.

How does Patreon work? You can pledge any amount that you want and once a month Patreon will automatically bill you for that amount. At different reward tiers, you're rewarded with more!
Goals
$663 of $1,500 per month
At $1,500 per month, an additional issue of Vastarien will be produced each year.
