Editorial Focus: 

We are a non-profit publisher of free ebooks. We’re here to publish material that wouldn’t ordinarily be published by mainstream presses or accepted by the literary establishment. There are many adjectives we could use to describe ourselves – original, experimental, uncompromising – but the best way to understand Philistine Press is to read our work.

Tips From the Editor: 

We are interested in original, unconventional work that does not fit comfortably into any one genre. We like genre fiction – crime, sci-fi, fantasy, etc – but if you are submitting this kind of work, we want you to do something new, not just echo what has gone before.

Philistine Press is not currently accepting submissions
