A Different Kind of Publisher
Like an underground radio station, we’re signal-seeking readers and writers who revel in the deep cuts. We’re committed to the power of storytelling, the honest expression of self, and that conventions and norms are meant for bending, even breaking.
Our mission is to provide the unique kind of stories and reading experiences that celebrate the indie spirit.
Lost Boys Press titles are:
- edgy at times
- full of emotion
Our books push boundaries, feature talented and diverse authors and contributors, and offer high-quality reads with an indie spirit.
