New Star Books is a product of the social ferment of the Sixties. Its roots are a literary supplement that ran in Vancouver’s one-time underground newspaper, the Georgia Straight. The Georgia Straight Writing Supplement evolved into the Georgia Straight Writing Series, which published early books by bill bissett, Judith Copithorne, Brian Fawcett, George Bowering, Daphne Marlatt, and others.
Currently, New Star publishes in the areas of social issues and politics; literary prose, both fiction and non-fiction; poetry; and culture and history of British Columbia and the West.
