About Fantastic Books

Fantastic Books is a publisher of new and reprint speculative fiction and related non-fiction.

The company was founded to bring back into print the out-of-print backlists of classic sf authors using print-on-demand technology. Publisher Ian Randal Strock (irs [at] FantasticBooks [dot] biz) bought the company in 2010, and folded it into his Gray Rabbit Publications, LLC. At the same time, he expanded its line to include new titles as well. And at the beginning of 2012, the company expanded into publishing some of its titles as e-books. And now we are linking for a partner to publish some of our titles as audio books.

Under the Gray Rabbit imprint, we publish a wider variety of titles, in many genres (check out the Gray Rabbit link above).

Our books are available for purchase through the major on-line retailers, as well as directly from us through the mail and at the conventions we attend.

Our scheduled upcoming appearances include:

Capclave: 18-20 October 2019 in Rockville, Maryland

Philcon: 8-10 November 2019 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Arisia: 17-20 January 2020 in Boston, Massachusetts
