Manic D Press is an award-winning literary press based in San Francisco, California publishing fiction (novels and short stories), poetry, art, narrative-oriented comix, and alternative travel trade paperbacks. Manic D Press represents a diverse group of unique writers and artists, with emphasis on those who have been shunned by the traditional publishing establishment for lacking commercial viability, regardless of their talent or future promise. It was founded by Jennifer Joseph in 1984 as an alternative outlet for young writers seeking to bring their work into print.
Manic D Press books are distributed to the trade throughout the US by Consortium, Last Gasp, SPD, and all major wholesalers. Canadian distribution: PGC, and UK/European distribution is through Turnaround.
