‘And Other Stories: publisher of the month, of the year, of the decade!’ Max Porter
‘And Other Stories is KILLING IT! These dudes are an inspiration to me.’ Will Evans, Deep Vellum Publishing
And Other Stories publishes some of the best in contemporary writing, including many translations. We aim to push people’s reading limits and help them discover authors of adventurous and inspiring writing. And we want to open up publishing so that from the outside it doesn’t look like some posh freemasonry. For example, as we said in this piece in The Guardian, we think more of the English publishing industry should move out of London, Oxford and their environs. In 2017 we moved our main office to Sheffield and found such a warm welcome. Our Northern Book Prize is a sign of our commitment to new writing from the North of England.
And Other Stories is readers, editors, writers, translators and subscribers. While our books are distributed widely through bookshops, it’s our subscribers’ support that makes the books happen. We now have about 1,400 active subscribers in over 40 countries, receiving up to 6 books a year.
We also have reading groups where people can help us unearth and discuss great foreign books we could publish in English. Curious about our reading groups? Follow The Guardian or Publishing Perspectives to find out more. ‘The future of publishing?’ Why not?! We love the books we’re publishing and we hope you will, too.
