Established in 2013, Rosarium Publishing is a publisher specializing in speculative fiction, comics, and a touch of crime fiction with a multicultural flair. They believe that “talent does not inherently have a race, religion, or region; there is no talent solely found in X or Y chromosome; talent is everywhere, and we will comb the four corners of this globe to find it.”
They like to “be crazy, wild, provocative. We also like to chill, and there’s never a moment where you won’t find us laughing. If you try to paint us in a corner, we’ll go all TAKI 183 on you and cover it with graffiti. We say that we’re here to “introduce the world to itself,” so you never know where you’ll find us.”
Previous projects include Afrofuturism anthologies, Rastafarian sci-fi, Southeast Asian steampunk, Hip-hop time-traveling fantasy, and tattoo artist vampires. DayBlack, Kid Code, Malice in Ovenland, Sun Dragon’s Song, Stories for Chip, and The Little Red Fish, are just a few of the projects they’ve brought to light over the last 5 years.
