Alkemara Press, publishing company, suspense, mystery, horror, fantasy, supernatural thriller.    About Alkemara Press

Alkemara Press is named for the lost and buried city, Alkemara, from Douglas Clegg’s Vampyricon Trilogy.

In the logo, created by Deena Warner Design, there’s an eclipse which crosses the tower of Alkemara.

Within The Vampyricon, there is an object called an Eclipsis —  a sphere that creates a dark-light, mimicking an eclipse. That seemed like a suitable idea for Clegg’s fiction: light within the dark of the story.

This small press is run exclusively by Douglas Clegg and his husband, Raul Silva. All cover art on this page has been created by the designers at Damonza.com.
