Paper Golem LLC was founded on 8 November 2006 to address under-served niches. First, the vast pool of tremendously talented up-and-coming writers, as well as many already arrived writers who are still brushing off their shoes. Call it "paying it forward" or recalling our own roots, but as authors ourselves we feel that these fresh writers are the life-blood of fiction. Nurturing their work at the beginning of their careers is a critical task, one we are proud to take up. Second, providing a home for novella length fiction, an ideal length for our genre, but one which has been under-utilized because few markets exist for it. As readers, we're tired of missing out on brilliantly written stories simply because there's no where for their authors to sell them. The results will amaze and delight you.
