Engine Books


Founded in 2011, Engine Books is a boutique fiction press specializing in literary novels and story collections. We synthesize the best elements of old-fashioned publishing—exacting standards, long-term relationships with authors—with contemporary approaches to technology and style. We believe that every book deserves close editorial attention at every level. Our titles are stringently polished to reveal the best possible execution of the author's vision. We also believe that a book is more than a container for ideas—that the finished product is an artifact representative of the power in its pages. We honor great storytelling with dynamic cover design and appealing interiors. Engine Books, with its stable of critically acclaimed authors and exciting new voices, represents the best of the independent press marketplace. With books that are "intricately plotted and drawn, full of surprises and pathos, and gut-wrenchingly real" (Booklist) and "graceful, disquieting, and intensely felt" (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution), Engine Books is poised to become one of the most trusted publishers of new fiction.
