There are thousands (if not tens of thousands) of publishers in the world today. Here are some of my favorites:
Les Allusifs is a small independent publishing house based in Montreal, Quebec.
Dalkey Archive Press grew out of the Review of Contemporary Fiction. The press started with the intention of restoring to print “just a few books.” Among the first few books were Gilbert Sorrentino’s Splendide-Hôtel, Nicholas Mosley’s Impossible Object, and Douglas Woolf’s Wall to Wall. They also publish David Markson.
Melville House Publishing is an independent publishing house born out of the book blog MobyLives and founded in Hoboken, New Jersey. It is currently located in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn.
New Directions Publishing was founded by James Laughlin in 1936. It has published works by Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Dylan Thomas, Wallace Stevens, Tennessee Williams, and Henry Miller, among others.
Pushkin Press is a London-based independent press specializing in translations of European classics and contemporary fiction.
Two Dollar Radio
Two Dollar Radio is a family-run, independent publisher that focuses on subversive, original, and highly creative literary fiction. It was founded in 2005, and derives its name from a belligerent old man in a San Diego bar who blurted out, “Don’t mind me, I make more noise than a two-dollar radio.” They publish Scott Bradfield, Gary Indiana, Amy Koppelman, Grace Krilanovich, Joshua Mohr, Jay Neugeboren, and Rudolpf Wurlizer among others.
