Shock Totem Publications (commonly referred to simply as Shock Totem) is an American small-press publisher specializing in dark fantasy and horror. It was founded in 2008 by author K. Allen Wood. He is assisted by John Boden, Sarah Gomes, Catherine Grant, and numerous staff writers.
The debut issue of Shock Totem: Curious Tales of the Macabre and Twisted, a digest-sized magazine of fiction and nonfiction, was first published in July 2009.
In May 2012, Shock Totem entered into the non-magazine market with James Newman’s limited edition 2007 novel, The Wicked, which was revised and expanded with new artwork and an exclusive tie-in short story.
Shock Totem’s main goal is to promote and support new and established authors by focusing primarily on fiction, but also through editorials, essays and interviews (called “conversations”).
