Indie Publisher of the Day: Sandstone Press
We’re very conscious that, whilst this splintered world we’re living in threatens and challenges ALL of the businesses in our bookish eco-system, many of the indie publishers we love so much (and their authors) will be finding it particularly tough without shop-floors like ours open to display their books.
So, each day for the foreseeable future, we’re going to post a list featuring one of our favourite independent publishers with a mix of some of their latest titles that might not be getting the attention they deserve and some of what we regard as their “greatest hits”!
Sandstone Press are based in Inverness, and publish thoughtful, innovative fiction, often with an international outlook, as well as gripping crime novels and outdoorsy non-fiction. The wild landscapes of Scotland regularly feature in their biographies and memoirs of outdoor adventures, while on the fiction side of things they are the publishers of the 2019 International Booker prize winner, Celestial Bodies, a generational story exploring gender constraints and the effects of slavery in Oman.
