Influx Press

London-based published Influx Press was born in 2012 with their first book, Acquired For Development By – an anthology of stories about the rapid changes taking place in Hackney, east London, featuring the debut short story by Gareth E. Rees, ‘A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes’, recounting a man’s erotic affair with an electricity pylon.

Since then they have published poetry, fiction and non-fiction from the margins of culture, specific geographical spaces and sites of resistance that remain under explored in mainstream literature. Their authors include Eley Williams (Attrib), Darren Anderson (Imaginary Cities), Linda Mannheim (Above Sugar Hill), Paul Scraton (Ghosts on the Shore) and Jeffrey Boakye (Hold Tight).

As novelist Lee Rourke comments, ”Influx Press explore the territories other publishers simply aren’t aware exist. They are a vital, thoroughly modern publisher forging new ways at looking at the world around us.”

The Stone Tide continues to push the boundaries, fusing personal memoir with weird fiction, comic book art and surrealistic travelogue.

Influx Press are: Kit Caless, Gary Budden and Sanya Semakula.
