Clan Destine Press is all about genre.
Genre fiction in its myriad and wondrous forms: crime, mystery, historical fiction, thrillers, adventure, speculative fiction, fantasy, science fiction, horror, urban fantasy, paranormal, steampunk, and ah-ha! – which is any combination of the aforementioned – for Adults and Young Adults.
We publish inventive, clever and original works of page-turning genre fiction; riveting cross-genre stories; and books that are heroic, questy, feral, dark, funny, spine-tingly, fast-paced, serious, silly and sensible.
Our authors are Australian and Clan Destine Press novels are straight, gay, queer, ancient, contemporary, gothic, retro, post-apocalyptic, earthbound and/or galactic.
We dabble in the non-fiction of true, but we specialise in genre fiction which – for some strange reason – means we also love fictional (& factional) cats, dogs, alpacas, cosmic toucans and Sawtoothed Bunnies.
We aim to publish new and exciting, plot-driven, boundary-pushing fiction with fully-fledged characters and a strong sense of place.
It is the prime objective of Clan Destine Press to uncover, foster and promote new Australian genre writers and to provide a home where already-published authors can move in and play in new worlds.

Dimitra Stathopoulos — Book Layout
Dimitra Stathopoulos hails from the wilds of Melbourne and likes to use her science degree to inform her baking and compost pile more than her work. She has been eyeballing other scientists' words for 18 years to make them readable, has written both science-y and fictional words of her own, and is now gently placing piles of words down in lovely tidy rectangles for Improbable Press.
