Title: My Shadow Book by Maawaam
Editor: Jordan A. Rothacker

Percy Shelley once remarked, “Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.”

What if Shelley was right, but his understanding didn’t go far enough? What if there was an ancient, interdimensional, supernatural cabal that strives to direct human progress, that has worked tirelessly in the darkness to save our world in spite of our enlightened penchant for destruction?

Novelist and literary scholar Jordan A. Rothacker shares his discovery of the notebooks of Maawaam, a Shadow Man and member of the secret society of Shadow Men and Women. What does Rothacker’s discovery mean for our world? Will Maawaam’s cryptic fragments, like the Rosetta Stone, provide a key to understanding this ancient and powerful tradition?

Science fiction or memoir; poetry or prose; art manifesto or political call to action; wisdom or nonsense? What is Maawaam’s Shadow Book but what lies between, what lies in the shadows.

The Retroactivist





Mankind has eradicated war, poverty, and jobs. Robots now perform all work. Humans live free to strive for pure happiness and aesthetic perfection. Everyone except for Reid Rosales. Unhappy with joy, unfulfilled by satisfaction, in the throes of a creative slump, Reid longs for something–anything–to help him rise above the easy pleasures of humanity’s perfected society. Reid thinks he’s the only one, until he stumbles on Club 20c, a twentieth-century nostalgia club. There he finds his calling in the long-lost virtues of a harder life … but at what cost?

Hello travelers!

We are Spaceboy, a new science fiction publisher focused on bringing new, weird, curious, inventive, thoughtful, optimistic stories to readers everywhere.

We grew up reading science fiction stories, whether they be renowned classics from the likes of Vonnegut, Bradbury, and Asimov, or popular universes like Star Wars and Star Trek. We are passionate about science fiction’s incredible capacity to provoke thought, challenge conventions, and present new, brilliant visions of the future. A great sci-fi story forces its reader to consider themselves and their world, whether it’s technological horror, alien parable, space adventure, or any other melding of humanity, science, and imagination.
