Gretton Books does not accept unsolicited manuscripts; the list is added to only by specific commissions.  It publishes both books and pamphlets, usually non-fiction covering history and politics since the nineteenth century, and since 2016 fiction as well.  It continues to seek original non-fiction that links literature and social reform, and is open to proposals for out-of-copyright books that deserve to be re-printed. Our contact details are on the final page.
