Happy to support indie…

It’s very nice sometimes to see our books available in places we never knew existed, especially when they are independent bookstores, like Antigone Books in the US. This small little bookstore has been around since 1973 and has recently been… Continue Reading →

Well, it’s official…

We’re doing what…?

Here at Scorpius we never do things by halves, which is probably why we committed at the start to publish 15 titles in our first year… eeek!! We must have been mad!

Oooo, it’s like Christmas!…

Look what turned up from the printer today! A lovely new box full of these little rascals.
