We love books. We’re crazy about books. Period. Yes, we could say that Run Amok exists to fill a hole in this country’s cultural fabric left by traditional publishers, who make editorial choices based solely on marketability and bottom line. But we won’t. We’re glad they do, because that gives rise to a need—a need for the mighty small, independent press. The ones who take chances. The ones who fill the gaps and shore up the edges, the fringes, if you will. That’s where we live—the fringes. We tend toward the obscure and the strange, the irreverent and the profane. We love experimental forms and interesting voices. These are the things that matter to us at Run Amok. These are the things we want to bring to readers. And that, friends, is really why we exist.
