Introducing HiLoBooks!

HiLoBooks was founded by’s editors. Our mission is to serialize novels on HiLobrow (in 2010-11, we serialized James Parker’s The Ballad of Cocky the Fox and Karinne Keithley Syers’s Linda Linda Linda); and also, as of 2012, operating as an imprint of Cursor, Richard Nash’s “publishing platform of the future,” to reissue Radium Age science fiction in beautiful new editions.

Kudos, Sci-Fi

What do you think?

  1. It would be great if these books were available as a subscription. It would be even better if I didn’t have to order them through a big box sweatshop like

  2. I could hardly be more pleased to learn about this new publishing program! For several years I’ve been reprinting classic SF novels and non-fiction—largely books related to the early development of spaceflight…but strictly as a hobby and strictly as a POD project (I don’t even advertise the things). I’ve drawn material largely from my own collection and have included among the titles brand-new original translations of several Jules Verne novels. I thought that I was pretty much doing this sort of thing in a vacuum…until I learned about your plans—and the pleasant discovery that someone else appreciates the same era of science fiction. The books you’re doing look very nice, too: it’s nice to see that care is being taken with their design and appearance…and the results look great. I’m very much looking forward to ordering my first copies!

  3. It’s not much of a big box sweatshop it allows new publishers to release their own works in way the real big box bookstores never would.
