We Publish Great Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Poetry Books

Headquartered in Mesa, Arizona, Brick Cave Media publishes books in digital ebook, audio book, paperback & hard cover print formats.
We feature the works of authors such as Sharon Skinner, J.A. Giunta, Scott Woods and Bruce Davis.

Editorial Focus (On Great Books)

Our business, and our authors, are focused on creating well crafted stories that separate themselves from the increasingly crowded marketplace of new writing. While we publish a variety of styles, we have found our strongest genres to be science fiction, fantasy and poetry.

About The Show Episodes/Segments

Bob Nelson, or “The Bobisodes”

Picture of Brick Cave Podcast host Bob NelsonHe’s just plain crazy. Filmmaker, poet, author, publisher, former coffee house owner, Internet radio voice since 1999, event organizer, director of a book festival and a writer’s conference and general all around annoyance, Bob Nelson leverages his ADD as best he can to run a non profit (Anthology, inc.), Brick Cave Media and Proxima Emporium while simultaneously providing logistical support to super heroes in his home of Mesa, AZ.

He doesn’t think he’s won any awards, at least none that he can remember- well, except that the poetry slam he founded won Best Poetry Event in Phoenix in 2002- but that was in spite of him he suspects. We’d link to his website, but he spends all his time working on this one, so we’ll just say – welcome to Bob’s website.
