About Plutonian Press

About Plutonian Press

Plutonian Press is a small press devoted to the best in horror and all its various subgenres. Founded in 2017 by Scott Dwyer.  Plutonian Press is dedicated to the art of bookmaking, we may be a small press, but we try to make the most stunning books on the market. And we have very high standards for the quality of the fiction we publish. Each book is made to be an artistic statement on its own. We avoid trends and fads. We make books that we hope people fifty years from now will still be reading. Plutonian Press focuses on the more intense and perverse shades of weird horror. We strive to feature and spotlight the best authors working in horror and adjacent to horror literature. We also want to pay homage to the great works of horror literature and do our part to further the genre. The strange, the weird, the perverse, and the nebulous, all have a home here at Plutonian Press. This is a press run by a self-proclaimed horror obsessive, and I think if you love horror, you will love our work! 

"Overall this volume is ripe with enough phantasms and chimeras to induce pleasantly strange and troubling dreams." - Rue Morgue Magazine

All these books are available on Amazon! Please also if you can, ask your local independent bookseller to carry Plutonian Press books!
