Stelliform books are at the forefront of conversations about culture and climate change.
We’re a small press publishing out of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. We focus on genre (SFFH) and literary fiction and creative non-fiction which takes up the conversation around the climate emergency and an intersectional view of environmental justice. We invite you to join us in reshaping nature/culture relationships through the stories we tell ourselves and each other. Welcome. We’re so glad you’re here.

We're delighted to announce Stelliform Press' acquisition of a novella by Octavia Cade, The Impossible Resurrection of Grief. This science fiction novella has a complex and troubling emotional core. The third novella from Stelliform Press, The Impossible Resurrection of Grief features a world in which climate change disruptions fray the emotional threads of humanity and raise questions about the many extinctions in which humans have played a part.
Michael J. DeLuca's cli-fi fantasy novella, NIGHT ROLL, will be released on October 15th and we're celebrating the novella's beautifully dream-like ride through near-future Detroit — a ride through the challenges of motherhood in the time of climate change displacements and the gifts of building new communities. Find out more about the launch, our special guests, and prizes in this blog post.

Despite the fact that another hurricane is headed toward Houston, we're having a launch for Sim Kern's DEPART, DEPART!, a book about a hurricane that destroys Houston.

Click through to see the prizes available at the launch, and to get your tickets.
As a new press still in its first year, we are a small team publishing a select number of books. At this early stage of Stelliform Press's existence, our readers provide sounding-board conversation and support for the EIC. But that kind of support is informed by the books our readers have loved. We share some of those in this blog post.
