The Uncial Letter – March 2017

One of the side benefits of being in the ebook publishing business is that we get to read a lot more books than we publish. They come from authors hopeful that we’ll offer contracts. Okay, so we don’t exactly read all of the material that’s submitted to us. A fair proportion of the submittees do […]

There are some fascinating novels based on a single action changing history. No, we aren’t talking about time travel, but about speculative stories that look at a single event and postulate what might have happened if the outcome had been different. One term for it is “alternate history.” Alternate history is usually classed as science […]

Happy New Year! Now that the holidays are behind us, perhaps we’ll have more time to read. We sure hope so. Seems like every time we stole a few moments to relax with a good book during the past six weeks or so, something interrupted us. Not that we’re complaining, because most of the something’s […]

Waiting for inspiration. Hoping for inspiration. Pleading for inspiration. Those are all three common occurrences in our lives. They are something all writers endure. Yet somehow they all manage to survive. For which we are thankful, because if they did not manage to come up with new, fresh stories to tell, where would we, as […]

We don’t publish horror. Not because we have anything against it, but because it keeps us awake at night, imagining horrible stuff will happen to us. The very thought of editing a good horror story give us nightmares. We do, on occasion, publish stories that could fit in the broad category of horror, but we […]

The Uncial Letter – September 2016

We publish a lot of Regency romances, here at Uncial Press, because we really like reading them. One of the reasons we like them is that it’s a really interesting period in English history. Depending on which historian you listen to, it’s variously defined as the years between 1811 and 1820, the period between the […]

Mysteries are popular. Not as popular as romances, but they sell well, and many of them are reprinted again and again. Doyle, Christie, Wolfe, Sayer, Chandler…the list of perennially popular mystery authors is enormously long, and growing every year. Unlike some other genres, the older mysteries hang around, getting read by each new generation of […]

That famous sage, Anonymous, once said “Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” Pretty good advice, and we’d like to be able to take it more often than we do. It’s such a great big, wondrous world, and there just isn’t enough time to see it all. Or money. For most of us, […]
