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, The Preditors and Editors Readers’ Poll 2018 named her #1 Best Editor overall, and she has placed in the top three every year since 2016.

She has curated the collections Shadows Over Avalon, Pizza Parties & Poltergeists, Sockhops & Séances, Silver Screen Sleuths, Speakeasies & Spiritualists, Just So Stories, After Avalon, and From the Dragon Lord’s Library. 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 wrote the September 2020 Doctor Who Subscriber Short Trip, “The Beast of Muir,” for Big Finish Productions.

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.

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