Ben Wolf founded Splickety Publishing Group (SPG)in 2011 for folks just like him: people with short attention spans and not enough time to read. In early 2012, Splickety Magazine debuted its first issue. Since then, Splickety has grown to produce three quarterly flash fiction magazines: Havok Magazine (speculative flash fiction), Splickety Love Magazine (romance flash fiction), and Splickety Magazine (general flash fiction).
SPG is also developing three fiction book lines for launch in 2017-2018 and has co-published several books with various authors. For more information about SPG, visit www.splickety.com.
In 7th grade Ben Wolf saw the movie Congo on TV. It was so bad that he wrote a parody of it that was set in Australia and featured murderous kangaroos instead of gorillas. So began his writing career.
As someone who knows how hectic life can get, Ben founded Splickety Publishing Group (SPG) to meet the needs of busy folks like him: people who appreciate great fiction but don’t have a lot of time to read. SPG offers three quarterly flash fiction magazines: Splickety Prime (multi-genre), Havok Magazine (speculative fiction), and Splickety Love (romance).
Ben has written six action/adventure novels (five of which are good) and has multiple other projects in the works. His first novel, Blood for Blood won the 2015 Cascade Award for Best Speculative Fiction Novel and has been characterized as "bold...with nonstop tension" and "hard to put down." It examines the question of whether or not God can redeem anyone—even a vampire. His debut children’s book, I’d Punch a Lion in His Eye for You, is a 2016 Cascade Award finalist and is beloved by children nationwide.
