House of Zolo is an independent Canadian publisher founded in 2019 to promote writers of speculative literature, to raise the profile of speculative literature worldwide, and to offer readers powerful, forward-thinking stories and poetry. House of Zolo is committed to publishing excellent speculative writing by today’s most compelling authors.

HOZ publishes literature with a special interest in speculative fiction, short story and poetry. We look for character driven stories that push against convention; we like fresh perspectives and provocative ideas that reimagine the world and our place in it. 

House of Zolo was created by a small collective of writers and editors who wanted to offer more space and profile for speculative literature. Our first call for submissions resulted in an avalanche of powerful work and two jam-packed journals of short stories and poetry. The HOZ Journal of Speculative Literature, Volume 1 was released January 1, 2020; and House of Zolo’s Journal of Speculative Literature, Volume 2 was released on October 21, 2020. Our first novel – Phreak, by JE Solo – launched on July 7, 2020. The House of Zolo’s Journal of Speculative Literature, Volume 3 is our latest release, Launching in the Fall of 2021. More new titles coming in 2022.
