Greetings from the Ether,
It has been a tumultuous year to say the least, but we’d love to close with an amazing announcement. Or, rather, a series of announcements. The chapbooks are all set, and the tables of contents are below, as well as the novelettes that will be published in the Tales From Gehenna series. Official publication dates are as-of-yet TBD, but we are hoping to release the chapbooks and novelettes in succession once the Kickstarter is complete.
Many of you who are subscribed to our newsletter will soon be delivered exclusive information regarding the Kickstarter. We are hoping to have the crowdfunding project live in January, likely towards the end of the month. There are going to be many wonderful prizes and rewards for contributing, and we look forward to sharing these with you. Keep an eye on your emails and keep a lookout for the launch of the Kickstarter! Make sure to share any updates, if you can, as it will help us spread the word for what is likely to be an exciting 2019 at Gehenna & Hinnom Books.
On a last note before the reveal, we want to thank everyone for their immense patience. We received over 900 submissions, and it has been a grueling process reading through all of the stories, and the actual selection process was like tearing off limbs. So many wonderful submissions, and we couldn’t be more honored. If anyone hasn’t heard back from us, it may be because the submission got lost in the process, as it was a lot to keep up with. If for whatever reason you haven’t heard back from us regarding your chapbook or novelette submissions, please email us immediately!
Without further ado, below are the chapbooks (artwork is not final)!

As for the novellas, we are in the final step of responses and acceptances. We should have updates on the novellas within the next week. Since they are much larger investments, it’s taking a bit longer than expected to finalize our decisions!
We also have an interview coming up with Christopher Ropes, where we will dive into his novelette and several other pertinent topics that are more important than we could express, ranging from writing as a craft to the personal struggles Mr. Ropes has experienced, which we hope to shed light on.
As always, thank you for your unwavering support and patience. We hope 2019 will be the best year yet! Make sure to follow us on social media and to check out our Patreon for some awesome rewards to subscribers!
