Egaeus Press

Morbid & Fantastical Works

About Egaeus Press


The foundations for Egaeus Press were laid in the cold English summer of 2011 in the dreamclutter of a childish melancholia - a nursery room agoraphobia compelling us to recall the anguished ticks of broken clockwork, the smell of curdled milk, the image of a songbird’s funeral on the tobacco-dry pages of an antique scrapbook … We are moved by the concept of the world as a haunted house, and by the paradox of all life’s darkest fears and most ecstatic wonders being essentially one and the same.


We like (amongst other things):

lych houses and gallow trees
connoisseurs and collectors
crumbling ancestral homes
decadents and decadence
scrapbooks and cuttings
masks and toy theatres
the folk tales of Europe
forests and mountains
clocks and clockwork
puppets and players
dreams and visions
seasons and cycles
furs and antlers
poison gardens
hermetic lore
ghost stories
music boxes
attic spaces
old forces
old songs
old bones
old maps

It is our intention to publish morbid, decadent and baroque fiction in limited volumes of a quality of ornateness rarely seen in modern books.
