About The Publisher

Arsenal Pulp Press

Arsenal Pulp Press is a book publisher in Vancouver, Canada with over 400 titles currently in print, which include literary fiction, nonfiction and poetry; books on social issues; gender studies; LGBTQ2S+ and BIPOC literature; graphic novels and non-fiction; children’s and young adult literature; regional history; alternative crafts; and books in translation. We are interested in literature that engages and challenges readers, and which asks probing questions about the world around us.

Arsenal Pulp Press began in 1971 as Pulp Press, a literary collective that provided a counterpoint to the academic pretensions of Canadian literary publishing at that time. Since then, it has won the Jim Douglas Publisher of the Year Award twice (in 2007 and 2020), and its titles have won numerous Lambda Literary Awards as well as the Governor General’s Literary Award, the Trillium Award, the Amazon First Novel Award, and CBC’s Canada Reads competition.
