    After three years and sixty publications, we've decided it's time for Sea Lion Press to listen to its customers and become more of a hub for alternate history. No longer merely a publishing house, Sea Lion Press is now setting out to be a crucible of activity in the counterfactual fiction world.

    That's why today, we are unveiling a new 'magazine' feature front-and-centre on our website, which will publish articles from Sea Lion Press authors and leading thinkers on alternate history about on the current state of alternate history, reviews, comment pieces, and occasional short stories. We're also launching a brand new forum, for discussion of Sea Lion Press titles, alternate history and more.

    The forum will be where all our articles are discussed, as well as a place for budding writers to swap notes, publish drafts, and eventually flag up their ideas to be submitted to Sea Lion Press. We'll be happy to look at anything that comes our way from the forum.

    With more examples of alternate history reaching television, film and video games than ever before, alternate history is making the jump from niche literary interest to mainstream phenomenon. It's time for Sea Lion Press to move with the (OTL) times, and we can't wait to see what comes next.

    More paperbacks

    We’re also thrilled to announce that five more paperback editions of our books are now available, with more coming very soon. Visit our paperbacks page for more info.

    My mouth is opening so wide it's gained it's own gravity.

    Ooh - definitely going to have a look at those. I need to sniff the sweet musk of fresh-pressed timelines.

    Mic drop.

    Nice work from the SLP team as ever, I'm going to have to write something now aren't I?

    Is this how gravity works now?

    It would be a dream to have a book of mine published.

    Either I would use my forum handle, or the pseudonym Alexandr Torenov (A character from an old election game I was in.).

    There is a chance it went into junk. This happened to me.

    There shouldn't be one, I've tried to disable it but for some reason it still wants to ask people to leave comments and thus log in.
