Test Patterns, a Weird Fiction Anthology

Planet X Publications is proud to introduce our flagship anthology title


Test Patterns will be a collection of short speculative fictions written with classic television shows such as The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, and The Night Gallery in mind. Richly varied stories which might impart a moral, inspire thought, offer meaning, inspire hope, or instill dread. Tales told in unique ways, employing provocative twists and surprises, and exploring the universal themes of humanity and self-discovery through the lenses of horror, fantasy, and science fiction.

Author, webmaster, and musician Duane Pesice of Planet Moderan Press is serving as editor-in-chief of this volume, bringing in diverse talent from (literally) around the world to delight and disturb our readers with brand new tales of the weird and otherworldly.

While still being subject to change, this premier volume of Test Patterns is slated to include new works by Matthew M. Bartlett, Arinn Dembo, Ashley Dioses, Jordan Krall, J.B. Lee, Frederick J. Mayer, K.A. Opperman, Duane Pesice, Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Christopher Ropes, John Claude Smith, Jeffrey Thomas, Scott Thomas, Sarah Walker, & Candace Wiggins.

We are currently fundraising and offering a pre-order program via GoFundMe campaign, so please click here to Support Test Patterns, a Weird Fiction Anthology

Welcome to Planet X

Hello, and welcome to the official blog of Planet X Publications.

Our mission here is to publish high-quality original fiction that dwells at the intersection points of science-fiction, fantasy, horror, the weird, and high-strangeness.

Think of Jack Kirby channeling ancient astronaut theory in The Eternals or his any of his Fourth World books, William Hope Hodgson playing with concepts of life, death, cosmic-scale time, the afterlife, the alien, and the otherworldly in The House on the Borderland, or the morbid inventiveness and interplay of gods, men, and magic in Clark Ashton Smith's Zothique cycle stories, then you'll begin to have an idea of both the aesthetic and the content we are looking for.

This blog will primarily be used for communicating current and future projects of Planet X, but also occasionally for projects by others that excite our imaginations and draw our interest, both past and present.

So, once more, welcome, and thank you for joining us on our journey to strange and startling new worlds...
