Friend, best-selling author of the Joe Hunter crime thrillers, and Thrillers Killers 'n' Chillers Ed. Matt Hilton said "Check this out for top horror and crime fiction from Lily Childs and Col Bury http://www.ganglionpress.co.uk/"

OK - so the cat's out of the bag :-) I'd better come clean.

It's true. I've started up a new small press GANGLION PRESS, ostensibly as a platform to publish my own e-books. But I'm very proud that Col Bury has joined me at Ganglion to relaunch his gritty crime collection MANCHESTER 6.

We have plans to publish future e-books, as well as further collections and anthologies, and may have a few other writers on board shortly too. The long-term plan is to also publish and sell my husband's esoteric artwork (he did the Magenta Shaman covers too) and run some exhibitions and events.

In the meantime the site is slowly coming together, though WordPress is not treating me as kindly as I'd like! And I need to set up Ganglion's Facebook, Twitter and other accounts plus a Mailing List - sooner rather than later.

But there you are. Feel free to pop on over to www.ganglionpress.co.uk to see what we're up to. I'll be shouting it from the rooftops soon enough. No, make that... howl.


  1. 'Ganglion' SUCH a great name - very best of luck to you all.

  2. Congratulations, Lily! This is all very exciting!

    I LOVE the name... Ganglion... there is a 'physicality' to it... very appropo, I think, for the genre.

    Yes, Wordpress does sometimes require a bit of patience, but I have found it more stable and reliable than Blogger... which chooses the most inopportune moments to go all 'wonky' on me!

    May I be among the first to offer you my congratulations and best wishes... much success and happiness in all that you do! xx

  3. Brilliant news, Lily, absolutely brilliant! Every good wish!

  4. Congratulations Lily - with the outstanding books you've already got under your new imprint, "Ganglion" will be a name to be reckoned with in no time!

  5. Exciting news, Lily! Best of luck. ^_^

  6. Many thanks to everyone for all the good wishes. Now the (even) hard(er) work begins! At some point I must remember to actually do some writing!



Lily Childs is a writer of horror, esoteric, mystery and chilling fiction.

If you see her dancing outside in a thunder storm - don't try to bring her in. She's safe.
