Jurassic London was founded by Anne C Perry and Jared Shurin in 2011, and our first anthology, Stories of the Apocalypse was published that year to coincide with an exhibition at Tate Britain.
Jurassic London closed in October 2016, following the publication of The Extinction Event.
During its five year run, Jurassic London published fifty titles, including award-winning original fiction, contemporary non-fiction, chapbooks showcasing new authors, and luxury editions of both new and classic works. We experimented with a variety of print and digital formats, and worked closely with artists and designers to make unique and eye-catching works.
Our goal was to showcase the continued relevance, creativity and fun to be found in literature, especially genre fiction. Since our original publication with Tate Britain, we worked alongside partners such as English PEN, the Egypt Exploration Society, the Royal Observatory Greenwich and the National Maritime Museum.
Jurassic London was a not for profit organisation. The proceeds from the sales of our books were distributed amongst our authors and selected charity partners.
All rights for Jurassic London work have reverted to the artists and authors. Please contact them directly with any queries you may have about reprints or usage.
As we are no longer an operating publisher, we are not open for submissions. Sorry!
