PS Publishing is a Hornsea, UK based publisher founded in 1999 by Peter Crowther. They specialise in novella length fiction (20,000 to 40,000 words) from the fantasy, science fiction and horror genres. It has won what The Guardian calls the "prestigous" World Fantasy Award nine times in the categories of Single-Author Collection (for The Very Best of Gene Wolfe, published 2010; Bibliomancy, 2003; and Where Furnaces Burn, 2012), Anthology (Exotic Gothic 4, 2012), Long Fiction (The Unlicensed Magician, 2015), Novel (Illyria, 2007; Osama, 2011), and in the category "Special Award, Professional."[1]

Since June 2004 it has also published the quarterly magazine Postscripts. Since 2012, PS is the publisher of the Exotic Gothic series, edited by Danel Olson. The New York Times argues that PS Publishing has chosen to be the first publisher of certain authors that mainstream publishers initially avoided, but who then went on to have their works appear on The New York Times Bestseller List and become optioned for film, including Stephen King's son, Joe Hill (writer).[2]
