Very cool place! Great owner. Great books. They are super nice and knowledgeable. It’s very family friendly here. Just fair warning, The owner likes to dress like his dog. So, you may see him dressed in a dog suit from time to time,

From 2013-2021 we published books solely under the name Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing, but beginning in early 2022 we started releasing titles as Ghoulish Books. We found we were focusing mostly on horror, and Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing didn’t exactly advertise that aspect. Since we were already producing a podcast called GHOULISH, it made sense to lean into that word when it came time to reconsider the name of our publishing company. GHOULISH forever.

We have a very limited staff, and slush is mostly read by only two people, so sometimes we fall behind on submissions. Please be patient with us. Also, we never require simultaneous submission restrictions, so please feel free to submit your story to other markets in the meantime.

In 2015, we purchased a quarterly horror magazine titled Dark Moon Digest from Dark Moon Books and started publishing it beginning with issue #20. In July 2022, we decided to discontinue DMD after releasing issue #48. Since then, we have launched a new magazine titled Ghoulish Tales, which releases twice a year.

Ghoulish Books is both a small press and indie bookstore based in San Antonio, TX. We started publishing under the name “Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing” back in 2013, then rebranded as Ghoulish Books in 2021. Our bookstore opened on April 29, 2023.

A couple years ago, we opened submissions for a new anthology titled Tales from the Crust: An Anthology of Pizza Horror. We received 57,892 stories to read for consideration, and accepted only 27 of them. The leftover rejections then went on to drown every other open call posted by other presses. The fallout became so extreme that soon these other presses started including “No pizza horror” in their guidelines. At one point, legendary splatterpunk author David J. Schow called pizza horror a “plague to the genre.” We apologize for nothing. Go buy Tales from the Crust.
