KANSAS, UNITED STATES (28 December, 2017) —

Outland Entertainment has launched its comics, games, and fiction publishing division, Outland Publications. The new arm of the creative services company continues to publish the company’s successful projects, such as the forthcoming print volumes of Nightfell and Warlock 5, as well as digital comics such as Ithaca and The Barry Blair Library, as well as anthologies formerly published by Outland’s fiction arm Ragnarok Publications. All currently in print Ragnarok Publications titles are being absorbed into the new division.

Outland Publications first new anthology project, Kaiju Rising 2, a sequel to Ragnarok Publication’s most popular anthology, is launching a Kickstarter on January 9, 2018. Editors Nick Sharps, editor of Kaiju Rising, and editor-in-chief Alana Joli Abbott have brought together an exceptional author list: Marie Brennan, ML Brennan, Cullen Bunn, Teri Clarke, Nick Cole, Steve Diamond, Kane Gilmour, Jonathan Green, Guadalupe Garcia McCall, Melanie Meadors, Mari Murdock, Lee Murray, Jeremy Robinson, Sabrina Vourvoulias, and Dan Wells. 

Editor in Chief Alana Joli Abbott, who has been with Outland since May 2016 and served as Editor in Chief of Ragnarok Publications upon Outland’s acquisition of that company, enthused about the new division’s upcoming projects. “We have some excellent anthologies planned for this year, featuring a group of really exceptional authors,” she said. “I’m pleased to be collaborating with experienced anthology editors, including Nick Sharps and Melanie Meadors, and Narazu editor Cerece Rennie Murphy, to be putting these projects together.”

Outland Publications’s other forthcoming projects for 2018 include the core roleplaying book for Matt Forbeck’s Shotguns and Socrery, as well as an omnibus tome of Forbeck’s novels that inspired the setting, and the launch of trans-media project Pileaus, which includes a roleplaying game, comic, and short fiction projects. 

Outland Entertainment continues to provide high quality creative services under the name of the parent company.
