We have everything from political memoirs (on both sides of the spectrum) to a former spy memoir to queer fiction to a book on Studio 54 to a photo book of Washington DC’s famed punk club, The Safari Club. We’re always hoping to publish interesting books on sex work (preferably by sex workers), music, interesting fiction, and memoir. I always look for books by authors that reflect the city of Los Angeles. Writers of color, queer writers, writers that get overshadowed by the New York publishing scene. As much as we’re a publishing house that publishes writers from all over the country (and other countries), we definitely try to make sure we’re representing LA, since that’s our home.
Like Octopus we’d rather be semi-pro than pro; more concerned with words and sounds and less concerned with spreadsheets and career paths. Our mission, ultimately, is to put out vinyl records of our favorite poets reading their poems. 2 records a year is the goal for the foreseeable.
