Our Mission

ACONYTE BOOKS is your friendly fantasy publisher bringing you new adventures and world-expanding fiction from your favourite games and comics.

Our goal is to transport you to unique worlds, with characters both familiar and new.

We’re the storytellers, the world explorers, the entertainers.

Marc Gascoigne, founder of The Black Library and MD at Angry Robot, heads up a team of creative, experienced, and intelligent book lovers in their offices in Nottingham UK, and in Montana and Roseville USA. The team continues to grow as more IPs are picked up from board game creators, Marvel, and Ubisoft.

Aconyte started publishing in Fall 2020 during a global pandemic but that hasn’t slowed them down. As of Nov 21 they’ve published over 30 world-expanding fiction titles in paperback and ebook, with audiobooks appearing in Fall 2021.
