Thanks to you, our readers and authors, 2016 was the biggest year yet for Brain Lag. The addition of our fifth author, Stephen B. Pearl, and his Tinker books, along with Hugh A. D. Spencer’s Why I Hunt Flying Saucers And Other Fantasticals and J. R. Dwornik’s Green Light to Paradise expanded the Brain Lag lineup by 67%!

In 2017, we’re working on getting out to more local events. Here is our schedule so far:

March 17-19: Toronto Comicon
April 1: Kitchener Comicon
May 5-7: Ad Astra
May 13: The Bookshelf
June 2-4: Niagara Falls Comic Con
August 17-20: Gen Con

Our event calendar will be updated as new events are added, and stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter accounts for up-to-date news on upcoming events and other author appearances.

Finally, our submission guidelines have been updated. We hope that this update clarifies what we are looking for in submissions. Also note that we are actively seeking works by or featuring women and minorities. We believe in diversity in fiction at Brain Lag, so please spread the word so we can help bring more inclusive tales to life.

We’re looking forward to another great year!


Thank you to everyone who came to see us at Ad Astra in the dealers room and for helping us make the launch party for Brain Lag a success. We spoke with a lot of great authors about their books and look forward to taking Brain Lag to the next level.

Submissions are now open. If you are interested in submitting your work for consideration, please read the new guidelines page. We would be very interested in hearing from you.

We have also started up a mailing list for news about upcoming events, promotions, new titles, and more. You can find the link to register for the mailing list in the sidebar to the left and get all the latest news on Brain Lag sent directly to your inbox.
