EnclavePublishing-webMarcher Lord Press has rebranded as Enclave Publishing following the speculative fiction and fantasy house’s recent acquisition by Steve Laube of The Steve Laube Agency.

At the recent Realm Makers conference in Philadelphia, Laube announced that Marcher Lord was being rebranded.

In an eblast to Marcher Lord fans, Laube explained why the new name was chosen: “An enclave is essentially defined as a group of like-minded people in a place where they are surrounded by those who are not like-minded. West Berlin was an enclave during the Cold War. In Rome there is an enclave called Vatican City. Enclave Publishing is a place where authors and fans of Christian fantasy and science fiction can come together. A haven. A gathering where we encourage each other, explore new ideas, hone our craft and then take our stories out to the highways and byways where they will spark the imagination. It is not an insular or secretive society hiding behind walls. Instead it is the opposite.”

He also pointed to Acts 17:20, which he said encapsulates the vision of Enclave-published books: “You are bringing some strange ideas to our ears, and we would like to know what they mean.”

“The highly creative stories in the Speculative Fiction genre can seem strange, but underneath, they contain powerful expressions of redemption, truth and hope,” Laube added.

This fall, Enclave will release new titles by Nadine Brandes, John Otte, J. Wesley Bush and Gillian Bronte Adams. The company also recently signed Ronie Kendig to write a Fantasy trilogy for release next year, and 2015 will see new books from authors including Sharon Hinck and Morgan Busse.
