Ragnarok has become known for stand-out dark fantasy novels and anthologies, having just released BLACKGUARDS: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues. Having only started in 2013, Ragnarok has put out a phenomenal catalog of books. In 2014, they acquired Horror imprint, Angelic Knight. Now, and to the rejoicing shout of this science fiction fan, they are going to add their prowess to a new avenue of laser blasting space battles. Science Fiction is not dead, it’s just been RagnaRoked!

From the press release:

Ragnarok is committed to a smooth transition between companies, and looks forward to reprinting some of Per Aspera’s titles under the new imprint with new covers, as well as publishing new works a little later in the year.

J.M. Martin, Creative Director and Co-Publisher of Ragnarok Publications, said, “Their mission aligns with ours. Tim Marquitz and I are both impressed with the story quality of their titles. Jak has assembled a crazy-strong book list, and the acquisition makes all of us even stronger.”

Of particular interest may be that one of their books, Our Lady of the Islands by Shannon Page and Jay Lake, is set in Jay Lake’s Green universe. Here’s how Aspera Press describes this tale: Chosen as one of Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2014 this remarkable novel is set in the lush and dangerous world of Jay Lake’s Green, where gods can die, yet the bones of their butchered bodies may still change the course of a civilization.
