Fiction, nonfiction, YA, biography, memoir… I started publishing because I love books. I publish titles that I would buy, and that I want to see on the shelves. SFWP’s mission is not about making a fortune, or creating a catalog that the accountants can get behind. The mission is one of recognition and preservation. These are works of art, as precious as anything you would hang on your wall. Please take a moment to explore our titles and join me on this mission.
-Andrew Gifford, Director
