alexvdl of File 770 is having a hard time figuring out how Castalia House publishes Nick Cole’s excellent Dragon Award-winning novel Ctrl-Alt-Revolt!.
Also of note is that, Ctrl-Alt-Revolt is the prequel to a book published by Harper Voyager. Although it’s listed as “Castalia House” on the ballot, the book was written for Harper, and then they declined it, and the author then complained of censorship and self-published it. If it’s published by CH then someone should mention that to Amazon, as it certainly doesn’t have that imprimatur there.
As we announced on the day the Dragon Award finalists were made public, we publish the hardcover and paperback editions of Mr. Cole’s excellent, award-winning novel. Because Mr. Cole was already self-publishing the Kindle and Audiobook editions, we saw no need to do so ourselves. We will be publishing the sequel, which will be called Ctrl-Alt-Replay!, in all four editions next year, as well as other books by Mr. Cole, who is rapidly becoming a favorite among the readers of Castalia House.
As for the idea that Castalia is a vanity press, I will merely note that it now publishes 58 books in as many as four editions each. It has not yet published a single book by me in 2016. The next five NEW releases it will publish in September and October are:
Alien Game by Rod Walker
Feast of the Elfs by John C. Wright
Nine Laws of Power by Ivan Throne
Six Expressions of Death by Mojo Mori
An Equation of Almost Infinite Complexity by J. Mulrooney
We will also soon be publishing the following five books in hardcover and paperback editions:
Iron Chamber of Memory by John C. Wright
The End of the World as We Knew It by Nick Cole
Back From the Dead by Rolf Nelson
Gorilla Mindset by Mike Cernovich
The Eden Plague by David VanDyke
Various audiobooks are also forthcoming, as well as print editions of SJWAL in Spanish and Portuguese.
