Spectral Press is an independent 2012, 2013, & 2014 British Fantasy Award-nominated genre imprint, devoted to stories of the ghostly and supernatural, and to very high quality. It’s run by Simon Marshall-Jones, who produces, on a quarterly basis, very limited edition signed and numbered single story chapbooks in a quality presentation. The press also publishes regular novellas and a Christmas Ghost Story Annual every December.

Alongside Spectral Press is Spectral Freelance Editorial, run by Simon, so if you have work of any length or genre – fiction or non fiction – why not give him a look and check out his clients’ testimonials?

Or, if you’re interested in reading reviews by Simon, check out his website, Speculative Assessments, where he reviews genre fiction alongside his reviewing duties for Interzone, SFX, and other magazines. Publishers, agents, and authors can also send work for him to review, but please note this is at his discretion since his primary duty is to Spectral Press.
