The Genji Press Cata(b)log

A little something for everyone. Yes, you too.


Genji Press isn't about focus groups or trends. It's about individual vision -- seeing only what one person can see, doing what only one person can do.

From the warm human comedy of The Four-Day Weekend to the stylish slipstream fantasy of Summerworld, the psychological twists of Welcome To The Fold, the dark underworld of Tokyo Inferno and the far-future spectacle of Flight of the Vajra, there's nothing stamped from a mold here.

We've got many new projects lined up for the future, and works from the past to be unearthed and added back in over time as well.

Learn more by visiting each book's subsite (linked above), or follow this page for updates on all new, future, and prior projects.

Writing wonkery ahead.

Over the weekend I finished putting together the scene map for Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, and slotted into it the "things to do" collected from the notes I'd kept during the first draft process. Some details follow for those not in the know.

Genji Press: Projects: The Empire's New Tools

New tools for publishing on Kindle are a major step forward.

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2017/08/07 08:00

In the time between I last published something through Amazon Kindle and now, Amazon has introduced new tools for e-publishing. They're a dramatic improvement over the earlier toolchain -- easier to use, easier to comprehend, and something I can get results from in minutes, not hours.

On finding my way through the second draft of a story.

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2017/08/02 08:00

Time to lift the hood on my work habits a little. The second draft process for one of my books -- Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned in particular, which is the one I'm currently rewriting -- works something like this.

Genji Press: Projects: Do-It-Yourselfer Helper Dept.

On preparing 'Welcome To The Fold' for (self)-publication.

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2017/07/05 08:00

Greetings, fellow Americans! I hope your July 4th was better than mine. I spent most of it being sick to my stomach and beyond, with some kind of gastric virus that produced symptoms not suitable for discussion in a family publication.

Some more detailed thoughts on having finished Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned.

Some more detailed thoughts on having finished Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned.

Finishing the first draft of any book is always a weird experience. You're elated that you got it done; you're exhausted from the work required; you're full of both apprehension and anticipation at having to go back and face your own words again.
