FableCroft Publishing is a boutique press dedicated to the future of speculative fiction in Australia.
The creation of Australian editor Tehani Wessely, FableCroft has a charter to promote both emerging and established authors and artists in the speculative fiction field, as well as the broad genre as a whole.
About the editor:
Tehani Wessely was a founding member of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine in 2001. Now firmly entrenched in Australian speculative fiction and independent press, she has edited for Twelfth Planet Press (among other duties), has judged for the Aurealis Awards (for which she is the current judging co-ordinator), CBCA Book of the Year and the WA Premier’s Book Awards, reads far more in one genre than is healthy, and writes reviews, non-fiction and interviews. In her spare moments, she works as a Teacher Librarian and enjoys spending time with her husband and four children.
Before FableCroft, Tehani was the editor of ASIM #4, #16, #27, #31 and #37, three Best Of ASIM e-anthologies, co-editor of ASIM #36, the Twelfth Planet Press anthology New Ceres Nights and other projects. In 2008, Tehani was awarded the Ditmar for “Best New Talent”. She also was part of a shared Tin Duck award that year for a conversational review of the Twilight series (published on ASif!), and another for the launch of New Ceres Nights. In 2011, she won the Tin Duck for Best Fan Written Work, and in 2012 won (with Alexandra Pierce) the William Atheling Jr award for criticism and review. Stories and works she has published have been shortlisted for multiple awards including Ditmars, Aurealis Awards, WSFA Small Press Awards, Tin Ducks, Australian Shadows awards and Sir Julius Vogel awards, and have been honorably mentioned in multiple Year’s Best anthologies. 2012 saw a FableCroft story by Thoraiya Dyer win the Best Fantasy Short Story category of the Aurealis Awards, while two other stories are in the table of contents of an Australian Year’s Best collection.
