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.

Genji Press: Projects: It Ain't Where You're From, It's Where You're At And Where You're Headed

The peculiar genesis of my new novel means it's going to take at least one to two more passes than usual to kick it into shape.

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2019/07/04 08:00

I've mentioned before I'm in the middle of work on a new novel, The Fall Of The Hammer, and in general it's not my habit to post word-count updates or anything that granular. I prefer to underpromise and overdeliver, and to bring the thing out when it's done and no sooner. I will say this, though: the peculiar genesis of this story means it's going to take at least one to two more passes than usual to kick it into shape.

Genji Press: Projects: The Mud Of The First Draft

Notes from early on in the first draft of the new novel, 'The Fall Of The Hammer'.

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2019/02/15 17:00

I haven't been posting much the last few days, not because of the site upgrade that temporarily borked my blogging software (or because of the idiotic self-inflicted political chaos that has become the hallmark of this moment in time) but because I've been up to the elbows and shins in writing the first draft of The Fall Of The Hammer. A couple of insights have already surfaced.

Genji Press: Projects: Oh, Yeah, Now Where Was I?

Sorry about the silence over the last couple of days. I've officially started writing the as-yet-untitled 2019 novel.

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2019/01/17 22:00

Sorry about the silence over the last couple of days. I've officially started writing the as-yet-untitled 2019 novel. The tentative title is The Fall Of The Hammer — a holdover name from a really old project, since I recycled a number of concepts from it into this one.

There isn't much to report so far — a few thousand words, a couple of hurdles cleared. I will say, without spoiling anything, that a few specific aspects of the project stand out so far:

Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned: Always Outnumbered, Never Misprinted

A small printing issue has surfaced with the dead-tree edition of my new novel, 'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned.'

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2019/01/09 09:00

UPDATE: The problem has since been fixed. The print copies are now correctly formatted.

If you bought a paper copy of Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, I have some bad news for you: The book's internal layout is not as I intended it.

Short version: The headers and footers in the book got switched. The page numbering should be at the top of the page, not the bottom. Apparently I managed to miss this through the whole of the proofing process. (I'll talk to my doctor about getting my pills changed. Promise.)

I'm going to work to make sure this is corrected and post another note, both on this post and on the blog generally, when the problem is fixed.

If you bought the paper book from Amazon and want to swap it for a fresh one, send me an email copy of your proof of purchase and I'll drop-ship you a fresh copy when it's ready, on me.

Note that this does not affect the Kindle or ebook versions of the book, just the print edition.

Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned: 'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned' Is Now Available!

My new novel is finally out! Everyone on earth should buy six copies.

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2018/10/29 10:00

Purchase on AmazonI'm pleased to announce that after way too many delays and pitfalls, my new novel Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned is now finally available for purchase.

Your future is theirs for the taking.

Aki was just a punk kid, but he had the "Split"—a flash of near-future insight that came only in moments of danger, and that let him see the way out of danger.He wasn't alone, either. Yannick Seyrig had assembled a whole family, blood and otherwise, of Split-users like Aki. Under his wing, and with his guidance, they had the power to steal the world out from under everyone's feet.

Then one day the Seyrig family encountered the first disaster it didn't see coming. And when Aki found himself also facing dangers that even the Split couldn't ward off, he had to find a new family. One that could bring both his skills and theirs to a whole new level … and that could stop a heist where the score was nothing short of every possible future for the human race!

The Kindle edition is available here for US$6.99.

The print edition is available here for US$15.99.

Other editions are available in other territories, too; check your local version of Amazon.

You can read the first few chapters online for free.

For the background on this story, check out my making-of / behind-the-scenes series on it, starting here. Also, here's a suggested soundtrack.

A big thank you to the people who helped make this happen.

As always, I hope you enjoy it. As always, I hope I passed the audition.

Also bear in mind my TYPO BOUNTY! If you find mechanical mistakes in the text (spelling, grammar, inconsistencies, editing blunders, etc.), collate as many as you can find, drop me a line and I'll fix it up, and throw you a goodie for your trouble. Limit one goodie per person per book.
