House of Zolo is an independent Canadian publisher founded in 2019.

HOZ publishes literature with a special interest in speculative fiction, short story and poetry. We look for character driven stories that push against convention, fresh perspectives that reimagine the world and our place in it, provocative prose that challenges us with innovative ideas — excellent speculative writing by talented authors.

House of Zolo was founded in Toronto, Canada by a collective of writers and editors who wanted to create 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 with Volume 2 coming in the Spring. Our first novel – Phreak, by JE Solo – is launching in April 2020.

House of Zolo was 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.
