Managing Editors

Series Editor

Nicole Petit

Nicole Petit is the Series Editor at 18thWall Productions. Every ongoing series is her domain, and kept well developed and well paced under her able hands. It’s not merely us saying this, Nicole was named #2 Best Editor in The Preditor and Editor Readers’ Poll 2017, and her anthologies—as well as stories from her anthologies—have been consistent award-winners, taking home awards as varied as Best Anthology, Best Horror Story, Best Magical Realism Story (The Preditors and Editors Readers’ Poll 2017), Best Story, Best Cover (Pulp Ark New Pulp Award 2016), Best Artwork, and placing highly in Best Anthology (The Preditors and Editors Readers’ Poll 2016).

She writes because no other job lets her sleep until noon. Fantasy is her forte, a sliver of genre right between urban fantasy and fairy tales. The first book in her Magic Realm Manuscripts, The Dragon Lord’s Secretary, is available now.

Her collections are Silver Screen Sleuths (forthcoming), Speakeasies and Spiritualists (supernatural stories in the Roaring 20s, inspired by Rose Mackenberg—Houdini’s investigator), After Avalon (Arthurian tales exploring what happened after Camelot fell), Just So Stories (a volume dedicated to Rudyard Kipling’s magical explanations for the world), & The Dragon Lord’s Library (a two-volume collection of the greatest new dragon stores, collected from the Dragon Lord’s personal library).

She series edits Jon Black’s Bel Nemeton, and J Patrick Allen’s Dead West.

She joined the company when James told her “Write for us, and we’ll throw all the money at your face.”
