Welcome to Shadowpaw Press

Shaping words…shaping worlds

We publish science fiction and fantasy primarily (but not necessarily exclusively). Come explore entire worlds, all shaped from that most marvellous of building materials—words.

Why Shadowpaw Press? It’s named after our lovely Siberian cat (that’s him at left), because why not? (Besides, he’s already had a book dedicated to him—Shadows, Book 2 in E.C. Blake‘s Masks of Aygrima trilogy from DAW Books.)
