Welcome to the online headquarters of Flinch Books! We’re a small press specializing in tales of adventure written in the spirit of the classic pulp fiction of the early to mid 20th century. Founded in 2015 by Jim Beard and John C. Bruening – two veteran writers and editors from the exotic locale of northern Ohio – Flinch publishes novels and short story anthologies that explore just about every genre imaginable: mystery, science fiction, western, horror, sword and sorcery, occult detective and more. The heroes and villains are bigger than life, the stakes are high, and the next perilous cliffhanger is always just a few pages away.

Come on in and take a look around, and be sure to come back often for news about what’s coming, because we always have new projects in the pipeline.

Get ready for some in-your-face pulp-style adventure, the kind that’ll make ya Flinch!
