Welcome to the Salon

Books are great (obviously, as we publish them). But so is the web. So sit back, relax, and imagine Gertrude Stein were here for a lovely respite in our Salon.

A Conversation with Heather Belle Adams

The novel is about two women: Sadie Caswell, whose son dies shortly before his wedding, and Tinley Greene, the young stranger who shows up claiming she’s pregnant with his child.Read More

Artist Spotlight: Stefanie Masciandaro

Stefanie Masciandaro

Stefanie Masciandaro

Stefanie Masciandaro is a New York-based artist with a love of all things fuzzy and sugary, not at the same time though. Sometimes she likes to pretend she looks like an old Renaissance painting. You know, those Italian ones with the great noses. Often she can be found wandering the streets of Manhattan in a slightly dazed state, and will frequently ask questions like “What day is it?” or “Is three cups of coffee in one sitting too many?” or “Yes, but is it feminist?” When not doing those things, she is probably hunched over a laptop working in Photoshop or pretending no one can hear her sing in her studio.

Startling Sci-Fi is available to buy in Paperback and eBook editions. The companion book, Visions of the Beyond, is also available.
