The DISQUIET imprint of Dzanc Books will publish contemporary works from around the world in English translation. The imprint comes out of the annual DISQUIET International Literary Program in Lisbon, Portugal. Its first title will be the novel The True Actor by Jacinto Lucas Pires, published in September 2013 in a translation by Jaime Braz and Dean Ellis. All titles in the DISQUIET imprint will include introductions by leading figures contextualizing the authors and their stories for North American audiences.


Monkeybicycle is a literary journal that lives both in print and online. Deemed "better than the rest of the litmags" by The Stranger, Monkeybicycle has been publishing a wide range of authors--whether unknown and recognizable--since 2002, and has had several works included in Best American Nonrequired Reading volumes.

Other Voices Books

Other Voices Books is a vibrant, all-fiction imprint blending the best of tradition and innovation. Founded in 2004 and known for short story collections and themed anthologies, the press also recently launched the dynamic new Morgan Street International Novel Series, which will focus on books set outside the United States. Having grown out of the longstanding literary magazine, Other Voices, Other Voices Books has the explicit mission of championing books of engaging, risk taking, accessible, literary fiction that would, at one time, have likely been embraced by the larger publishing houses but that have now been marginalized in favor of the "fad" and genre books aimed at a mass popular market.
