Editorial Focus: 

Alternative Book Press is a new publishing company established in October 2012 by Columbia University and Cornell University graduates with the following aim in view: To identify and publish genuine, pathbreaking works reflecting alternative viewpoints far away from the huge volumes of matter in publishing today. Works that stand out. Works that are not written primarily from the point of view of sales, but rather works that will be seen 50 or 100 years from now as of lasting import.

Tips From the Editor: 

400 word synopsis and no more than 5 pages of manuscript
