Valancourt



Der kleine unabhängige Verlag aus Richmont, Virginia ist (unter anderem) spezialisiert auf Wiederentdeckungen schwuler Klassiker - vom berüchtigten 19.-Jahrhundert-Porno "The Sins of the Cities of the Plain" über (fast) vergessene Meilensteine schwuler Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts.
Wir finden das Programm dieses Verlags auf jeden Fall außerordentlich bemerkenswert und spannend! Deshalb finden sich die "schwulen" Bücher von Valancourt ab Ende 2016 auch im Erlkoenig-Shop, obwohl wir englischsprachige Titel bisher nur in Einzelfällen direkt hier einstellen.
Und: wir bemühen uns, diese Titel auch wirklich vorrätig zu halten. Mit anderen Worten: mit relativ großer Wahrscheinlichkeit können wir sofort liefern - und das dank Direktbezug auch zu richtig attraktiven Preisen!

VALANCOURT BOOKS über VALANCOURT BOOKS

OUR HISTORY

Valancourt Books is an independent small press specializing in the rediscovery of rare, neglected, and out-of-print fiction. Despite the valiant efforts of a few small presses and the availability of new technology that can make books available to readers all over the world, far too many great books remain out-of-print and inaccessible; we founded Valancourt Books in 2005 to restore many of these works to new generations of readers. Below, you’ll find information about what we publish and who we are.


Gothic, Horror, and Supernatural

One of our specialities is Gothic, horror, and supernatural fiction, a broad category that also includes weird, occult, sinister, macabre, and fantastic works and encompasses both 18th- and 19th-century classics and more modern works.

Gay Interest

We also specialize in titles of gay interest, including works by gay authors or with gay themes. Our 18th and 19th century selections include important titles by authors such as M. G. Lewis, William Beckford, and Frederick Rolfe (Baron Corvo), as well as key anonymous works from the Victorian era, such as Teleny (sometimes attributed to Oscar Wilde) and the notorious The Sins of the Cities of the Plain.

Our 20th century gay interest titles include almost every major work published in the 1950s and 1960s, such as Michael Nelson’s A Room in Chelsea Square, Rodney Garland’s The Heart in Exile, Walter Baxter’s Look Down in Mercy, Kenneth Martin’s Aubade, Gillian Freeman’s The Leather Boys, Martyn Goff’s The Youngest Director, Michael Campbell’s Lord Dismiss Us, and more. We have also reprinted many works by some of the best 20th century gay authors including Forrest Reid, Francis King, C.H.B. Kitchin, Paul Binding, and others.


Neglected Authors and Works

Of course, there are many great authors and works that don’t fit into either of the first two categories but are still in need of rediscovery and republication...
