Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Adam Parfrey founded Feral House in 1989. Since then, it has consistently published innovative, unexpected and thought-provoking nonfiction — inspiring films and cultural trends; exposing crime, malfeasance and stupidity; and celebrating artists and thinkers overlooked by popular media. Feral House and sister press Process Media are Headquartered in Port Townsend, WA. Feral House and Process Media publish topics of esoteric interests and distinctive voices and is a formidable force in independent publishing and often the first and definitive source for documenting cultural movements. We feel that stories about and written by members of marginalized communities are interesting and essential to ALL readers.
