About us

STRANGE DAYS BOOKS
Strange Days Books is a cooperative publishing organization based in Crete, Greece.
We publish books by young writers from Greece but we also publish books by writers from around the world. In the past seven years of our existence we have published Greek translations of books by writers from countries such as the USA, England, Denmark, Spain, Bulgaria e.t.c. For many of these authors this was their first book ever to be published! Strange Days Books also publish first releases of books by foreign authors in English!
Strange Days Books is an entirely independent publisher, primarily interested in showcasing the wealth of the new writing voices of Greece. We work closely with our authors in order to create books that will appeal to booklovers, books about the present, books contemporary readers can relate to, books that strive to push the art of literature forward, books written with talent and passion, books that challenge the way we see the world, books that burst with new ideas and intriguing perspectives, books that have something to say and were not written for merely commercial purposes. In other words, we create books with character together, steadily growing into a community of artists and art-lovers that represent and promote the truly new literature of Greece, not only through publishing but also through a literary festival, the only international short story competition in Greece, theatrical play and novel competitions, book events and more. Every summer we organize Sand Festival – a literary festival held literally on the sand of a Greek island.
