Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
We started Small Beer Press in 2000, after putting out a do-it-yourself zine, and working for years in independent bookstores, in order to publish the kind of books we loved handselling. We publish literary fiction, innovative fantastic fiction, and classic authors whom you just may have missed the first time around. In our catalog, you’ll find first novels, collections both satisfying and surreal, critically acclaimed, award-winning writers, and exciting talents whose names you may never have heard, but whose work you’ll never be able to forget. Joan Aiken, John Crowley, Carol Emshwiller, Jeffrey Ford, Angélica Gorodischer, Ayize Jama-Everett, and Sofia Samatar are among the names on our growing list of innovators. A cold beer in summer, hot tea in winter, good books all year round.
