Gehenna & Hinnom Books is the brainchild of science fiction/horror author C.P. Dunphey. After the success of his first novel, Plane Walker, Dunphey decided to use his marketing talents, editorial experience, reputation, and passion for helping other writers find publishing success, to create Gehenna & Hinnom Books as a medium for new, up-and-coming authors who dwell in the darker side of fiction. Dunphey has edited thousands of short stories, many novels, and has published short story collections of famous authors, in addition to annotated and revised collections of public domain works. He has helped hundreds of authors find publishing success and hopes to help many more in the years to come.

If you have a short story you are prepping for publication, or you have a novel that needs that finishing touch of revisions, feel free to email us with an inquiry.  There is no set price or budget we require, as each work is different and we are also aware of the ridiculous prices charged by most editors.

We promise to work with you, with your budget, and your time constraints.  We also vow to help in any way possible, with the goal in mind of perfecting your vision and bringing your brain child into a wonderful, thriving existence.
