We have a BackerKit campaign coming in September with the Booktopia project! Get a surprise anthology from Space Wizard!

Lesbians in Space: Where No Man Has Gone Before is a collection of sapphic-themed short stories from some of your favorite authors! This is the best way to preorder the anthology and support indie authors at the same time.

What Makes Us Different

Space Wizard Science Fantasy focuses primarily on queer and BIPOC writers and stories. We pride ourselves on making sure our authors get great exposure and marketing for their books. A common problem for small presses is to overreach, and not deliver. Space Wizard aims to stay debt-free on initial releases, as well as giving great royalty rates, wholesale prices for authors to buy their books, up-to-date covers, and effective, continual marketing for all books in our catalog. If you're an indie author who is tired of self-publishing or doesn’t want to handle the marketing side of things, Space Wizard Science Fantasy can do the heavy lifting for you!

We handsell books at 20+ conventions, markets, and pop-ups per year, and we're always looking for new marketing strategies. We also use a crowdfunding campaign every June to raise awareness for the next year of book releases, as well as gathering funds to help pay for great book covers, semi-pro and pro rates for stories, and illustrations. Authors are encouraged to help spread the word during the campaign! It's a great way to get a first batch of preorders for your new novel.
