We are

Authocracy Studios

Creators of Fantasy and Sci-fi Worlds

Who are we?

Authocracy is a creative studio and publishing house for the digital age – an organisation of world-builders who, quite simply, live to create; bringing new frontiers of the human imagination to life.

Our team is international and diverse. Its shared mission is to bring stories to the public which are polished to the same exacting standard of the best of their peers in the industry, but whose subject matter would otherwise be deemed too ‘outside the mainstream’, ‘heady’, or simply different to be comfortably embraced by the old guard of book publishing.

We believe that artists know art better than business people. It’s as simple as that.

What We Do

Fantasy and Sci-Fi Worlds

We specialise in immersive high-concept fantasy and sci-fi properties. We believe that all good stories deserve to be told, and it is our fortunate duty to deliver them in whatever format they require.

Original Soundtracks

If you’re anything like us, you’re a sucker for good music. Our team of incredibly talented composers bring a whole other acoustic dimension to our narratives: expressing the deeply emotive foundations of our characters’ journeys.

Vividly illustrated and Animated

Words and illustrations go together like bread and butter. That’s why every Authocracy world is laced with abundant illustrations to bring them to vibrant life!

Detailed Character Wikis

We are constantly working to update and expand our supplemental character wikis to help our readers keep track of all the nuances and complexities of each character. We see this as a major quality-of-life update for the written story as it is known today.

L. Farnsworth Colson

Creative Director

New England-based author L. Farnsworth Colson’s passion for storytelling began in grade school, where he would daydream about following in the footsteps of Joss Whedon as a TV show runner after seeing the director’s shows Buffy and Firefly

Ben Mills

Art Director

An avid artist and fantasy/ sci-fi fan from southern England, Ben Mills has a deep fascination with history, language, anthropology and archaeology. These interests heavily inspire his work and often themes he incorporates into his storytelling.
