About Hedera Felix

Hedera Felix is all about encouraging new talent to bloom alongside more established authors and artists.

We work with people across the world as a non-profit independent publisher. Consequently, we have built a community of like-mindedness rooted in the weird and the eerie.

Generating new connections is a huge part of independent publishing. Equally, this is a critical part of Hedera Felix’s activity. You can see it happening in our print magazine, Mycelia.

And, we approach new forms of connectivity through our editorial mentoring as well as by commissioning reviews. Furthermore, when possible, we produce events IRL and online.

Who we are

Community Interest Company (CIC) directors: Pamela Clarke, Simone Hutchinson, Richard Taylor.

Managing Editor: Simone Hutchinson. Editors and submission reviewers: Pamela Clarke and Richard Taylor.

Where we are

Happily, albeit often sodden thanks to the weather, we are based in Glasgow, Scotland (which is still in the UK, which is no longer part of Europe). Specifically, one of us lives in Strathbungo, with the next in Kelvinside and the other in Mount Florida.

More about Hedera Felix’s motivation and inspiration

Simone founded Hedera Felix as an independent publisher in 2018. Significantly, this was to give more presence to Weird fiction and experimental literature in Scotland.

Simone and Pamela draw inspiration from Jeff and Ann VanderMeer, Mark Fisher, Virginia Woolf, BS Johnson and Donna Haraway. Richard likes William Gibson, Nintendo and art.
