New Imprint...Coming Soon!

Strang Communication (umbrella for Charisma House, Siloam, and a number of magazines) is launching a new imprint. I'm usually hypercritical of moves by competitors but so far I haven't had a complaint about anything I'm seeing from them.

The imprint is called Realms. Great name for a visionary/fantasy/ sci-fi publisher. Plus, slick logo. If you've a taste or heart for this genre, this is great news.

In fact, I think it's good news for the industry in general. We publish some excellent "visionary" novels here at BHP (Kathy Tyers, Randy Ingermanson, and the acclaimed Karen Hancock). But it's a genre that needs a self-sustaining number of good books to keep readers happy. Hopefully the fiction is strong, too. (I think the books are available this fall...)

(Okay, I have one small complaint. You have to go through the intro. page each time at the entry URL. Jeff, put a skip intro button up!) (Edited to add: Jeff has pointed out that this link will take you directly to the main page. He also mentioned that a new and improved Realms site will be coming next month some time.)
