Welcome to Brain Lag!

Based in Ontario, Canada, Brain Lag publishes fantasy and science fiction books. Our focus is on helping our authors shine by providing each author with personalized attention. We are a small press publisher, however, with our dedication to quality, we strive to bring the high standards of New York Times bestsellers to every book we accept.

Here at Brain Lag, we love debut and emerging authors and stories that run the gamut of speculative fiction sub-genres. Our first criteria for every book we accept is a good story. Whether you like fast-paced action, slow burn epics, classic tales or envelope-pushing, short stories, or magical realism, we have a book (or two!) for you!

To view our complete catalogue, click the Books link. They are listed by release date, but you can use the filters at the top of the page to narrow down the results to just the kind of books you're looking for. Bios of all currently contracted authors are available on the Authors page. You can also purchase books directly from us in the Store.

We also have Videos and Podcasts featuring our authors or books. For more about our company, view the links under the About heading, see a list of our upcoming or previous appearances under Events, and you can get in touch with us under the Contact heading. (That's also where you'll find Submission information.)
