Paradise Press produces novels, short stories, poetry, memoirs and non-fiction. All our authors are members of the Gay Authors Workshop.

Some of our titles are no longer available but you will see from the Books section there is a wide range, from the wit of Mike Harth and John Dixon to memories of lost queer spaces (Lost Places) to serious pioneering history in Amiable Warriors. There is also passionate women's writing, e.g. We Want to Tell You How.
