Welcome To Netherworld Books

We are a specialist publisher of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and Paranormal Romance. Being fans of the genre ourselves makes this a passion and we take great delight in bringing new authors into the limelight.

We have already published some fantastic debut novels such as Delirium Tremens and Love Hurts, both of which recently featured in the Amazon best sellers lists.

It is our mission to give an opportunity to talented new writers to gain a platform for their work in an industry that is usually highly dismissive of first time authors.

We were born when a new author approached our parent publisher and told how she had been reduced to tears after trying to talk to a well known publishing house of Science Fiction. The treatment she received nearly drove her to tear up her work and give up writing. This author subsequently joined us and has proved to be one of our most successful writers.

We publish in paperback and all the main electronic media.

If you are interested in purchasing any of our titles you will find them available in all good bookstores and online retailers.

If you have written a novel, please see our submissions page for details of how to send it to us for assessment.

Latest Release

Twilight Visitor by Real Laplaine

twilight 500The book encompasses two stories, which come together as one, and all in a 24 hour period. An energy-desperate China invades Iran to take its oil fields. Pressed to the wall, Iran ultimately retaliates by firing a nuclear warhead on Beijing. During this same period, a bio-engineer from Scandinavia, vacationing on the shores of his Portuguese hometown, where he hopes to get a grip on his dysfunctional personal life, encounters a mystery woman; she reveals to him that the world is about to be capitulated into a nuclear war and that he alone can stop it. He resists her from the start, refusing to accept anything she says and her claims that the technology developed by his Swedish engineering team can solve the energy disaster facing China. Not until the final hour, when a global meltdown is imminent, is he finally challenged to either continue his irresponsibility, or to do something about the crisis.
