In the beginning…
Paper Golem LLC was created on 8 November 2006 with the intention to address several under-served niches.
We began with a reprint collection, Prime Codex, showcasing many of the writers who made up the first generation of Codex, an online writing community founded by Luc Reid.
Next, we branched out in two directions, addressing the lack of markets for genre novellas and identifying up and coming short story authors.
The former produced our Alembical series and the latter incredible collections by such authors as Eric James Stone, and Tom Doyle.
From there we moved on to some experimental “prompt” anthologies, as well as a book of science fiction cat stories (because we could).
In 2019, as health challenges arose, all these books were allowed to go out of print and all rights were returned to their authors.
Currently, Paper Golem evolved to serve as the home imprint for the “indie” works of Lawrence M. Schoen.
