Manic D Press was founded by Jennifer Joseph in 1984. An award-winning literary press based in San Francisco, California publishing fiction, poetry, pop culture, music, art, narrative-oriented comix, children's,and alternative travel books, we represent 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. We've expanded our mission to offer refuge to established writers escaping from the commercial publishing parallel universe. Manic D Press books are distributed to the trade throughout the world by Consortium/Ingram and all major wholesalers. UK / European distribution is through Turnaround.
