    Ragnarok Publications / Per Aspera Press

    I didn't find this press on AW either, and I can't check P&E...

    Per Aspera Press (founded in 2003) was added to RP as their SF imprint in 2015. Press release here.

    FYI, Per Aspera published Shannon Page and Jay Lake's Our Lady of the Islands in 2014. Their own Twitter looks dead [and I'd think an imprint would keep Tweeting, but hey]. Ragnarok only lists two sf books under Per Aspera.

    Anyone have any news, as author, customer, and/or freelancer, to report?

    Thanks!

    Ragnarok Publications

    Sorry all, I have Googled and used the AW search, and still do not find this. Even in the index.

    Ragnarok Publications

    This publisher changed to only soliciting stories in 2016.

    Angelic Knight Press is the only index listing on AW for RP, and that is probably because Ragnarok acquired AKP as its horror imprint in Dec. 2014. (They added Per Aspera as their SF imprint in 2015, and I've started a thread for that as well.)

    Per their about page, they signed Django Wexler, who is with Roc via Penguin Random.

    Anyone had any interactions -- good, bad, or otherwise -- with RP?

    Thanks!

    There's a thread here, which includes this link to one author's poor experience with the press. Note that one of the publishers visited the thread and said they were working to improve, so maybe someone with more recent experience can speak to whether they did.
    I'm a twit, too: @PearsonMarlys

    Ragnarok's new management just announced they've cancelled a ton of books and author contracts. I don't have a dog in the race but this has hit a few people I know pretty hard, as they were still aquiring new books barely a month ago.

    Ouch, this one hurts all involved :\ I'm glad to see they have paid all royalties owed though.

    A friend of a friend had a new two book deal with them, and only found out it was cancelled when he heard this news on Facebook -- no email, no nothing That's shoddy behavior.

    Ugh, that is worse than shoddy, it's downright disrespectful. I can imagine the sickening, sinking feeling that caused.
