ABOUT US

Books Outside the Box is a monthly subscription service that provides two books in every box – one in the sci-fi/fantasy genre, and one from thriller/gothic/horror. Books Outside the Box is perfect for new readers moving into speculative fiction genres, or for old hats looking for something new and fresh to read.

OUR PURPOSE

We aim to send you titles from genres you love that might have passed you by. These will include:

  • Underappreciated stories by well-known authors

  • #OwnVoices and LGBTQ+ books

  • Books produced by independent authors and small presses

  • Great books that somehow passed under the radar

  • Collections of short fiction often overlooked by mainstream retailers

WHO WE ARE

Books Outside the Box is a small independent business run by Vicky and Rowena. Vicky is a full time freelance editor based in South Wales. When she isn't editing manuscripts, Vicky is a part-time student at Swansea University working on her doctorial thesis with a focus on hauntings in 21st century literature. She also runs and teaches at the yearly writer's retreat for horror and gothic writers called 'The Writing Haunt'. Sadly, the retreat is on hiatus due to Covid-19, but Vicky and the Haunt team will be ready to launch once we've eased into the new normal.

You can find Vicky's other ventures here:
