ScienceThrillers Media: What we publish
ScienceThrillers Media is a niche publisher that specializes in books with scientific or medical themes, or stories with protagonists who are scientists, mathematicians, engineers, or physicians.
This includes LabLit, hard science fiction, medical thrillers, technothrillers, certain YA and children’s books, and popular nonfiction.
We’re shameless geeks here at ScienceThrillers Media. Our founder has two doctoral degrees (an MD and a PhD) and she believes science and storytelling make terrific bedfellows. If you disagree, come back after you’ve read some novels by Michael Crichton, Robin Cook, Kathy Reichs, Douglas Preston, Tess Gerritsen, or James Rollins, all of whom we wish were STM authors.

We are especially interested in books that are shorter than a traditional hardcover. If your adult-market story is naturally complete at 40,000-70,000 words, ScienceThrillers Media would like to hear about it.
Poetry collections and children’s books (science, technology, engineering, math, medicine themes only) are low on our list but if you have something sensational, go ahead and query us.

Speculative fiction. No post-apocalyptic scenarios, future worlds, space opera, sentient alien life, time travel, off-planet human colonies, horror, or fantasy.
