ISFiC Press

The small press publishing arm of ISFiC. It often produces books by the Author Guest of Honor at Windycon, an annual Chicago science fiction convention, launching the appropriate title at the convention.

Although the press officially released its first book, Robert J. Sawyer's Relativity, on November 12, 2004, the people responsible for the press issued a filk CD two years earlier, entitled "A Walk on the Windy Side." That CD is considered to be the press's first project.

"A Walk on the Windy Side" includes songs by Charles de Lint and Juanita Coulson as well as readings by Frederik Pohl and Kristine Smith.

In addition to stories and essays by Sawyer, Relativity includes an introduction by Mike Resnick, an afterword by Valerie Broege and a cover by Jael. Relativity won the Aurora Award for best English Work (Other) for 2004.

ISFiC Press released its first two novels, Every Inch a King, by Harry Turtledove with a cover by Bob Eggleton and The Cunning Blood, by Jeff Duntemann with a cover by Todd Cameron Hamilton on November 11, 2005.

In 2006, ISFiC Press published its first non-fiction book, Worldcon Guest of Honor Speeches, edited by Mike Resnick and Joe Siclari, which was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Related Book. In November of that year they published Outbound, a collection of short stories by Jack McDevitt.

From its founding until the end of 2012, the publisher of ISFiC Press was Steven H Silver and the business manager was Bill Roper. After 2012, Roper took over as publisher.
