“Brad Carter is a product of the public school system in Arkansas, but he hopes you will not hold that against him. He currently lives in Northwest Arkansas, where his wife and daughter barely tolerate his behavior. His novel The Big Man of Barlow has recently been optioned for a forthcoming film, and Publisher’s Weekly called his second novel (dis)Comfort Food “”… an unsettling story that goes from appetizing to nauseating as the narrative plunges from dark fantasy straight into horror, where familiar ingredients bring unexpected results.” (this guy is working the PMP Table, he only needs one)

With over 80 books in print since opening in late 2010, Post Mortem Press has grown from a distraction against the worries of a corporate career gone awry to a successful independent publishing concern. Post Mortem Press apparently did something unusual; they combined business acumen with a love of the written word and respect for the authors who create them.
We have earned the respect of many luminaries in the world of dark fiction.
The likes of Clive Barker, Joe Hill, Harlan Ellison, Johnathan Maberry, F Paul Wilson, Jack Ketchum, and many more have graced the pages of Post Mortem Press anthologies.
The singular goal of Post Mortem Press is to answer opportunity’s call by providing an outlet for new and established writers of speculative fiction. Founder Eric Beebe brings practical experience in both business and publishing, but not the publishing business (a good thing – really), allowing for a sustainable small press.
Our business model allows us to consider publishing works that may be overlooked by the mainstream. Unlike many other publishing concerns out there, we don’t want anything from our authors other than their support in promoting their books. This process provides for a payoff for the author’s creative sweat equity.
Post Mortem Press covers the cost associated with creating a professional book and pays royalties for each sale, while offering author copies at prices just above our cost.
