Since 1995 a small publisher from Burton, Michigan, has been at the forefront of collectible editions in the horror, suspense, science fiction, and dark fantasy genres. Subterranean Press - also referred to as simply SubPress - has published hundreds of books, as well as a quarterly magazine called Subterranean Magazine, featuring short stories from some of today’s most popular genre authors.
Subterranean’s luxuriously bound limited editions, signed, lettered and numbered editions, and unique trade editions are highly desirable. In addition to the remarkable bindings, collectors are drawn to Subterranean because it publishes work by literary superstars famous for dark storylines, such as Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Robert Bloch, Joe R. Lansdale, Philip Jose Farmer, and more.
These limited, collectible editions are not the only reason Subterranean is widely considered one of the finest genre fiction presses. The publisher also excels at negotiating rights to exclusively publish previously unreleased works and collections from the same big-name authors, as well as from up-and-coming but unheralded talent. Limited fine bindings, unique special editions, burgeoning new talent, and dark, edgy fiction are the hallmarks of Subterranean books.
Collectors love Subterranean Press for their beautiful, deluxe editions, many of which attract worldwide interest and become more valuable as each year passes.
