Zorba Press Announces: We have moved our Website !

For our latest books, ebooks, information and resources, please visit the new site

Zorba Press is an independent publisher of books, audio books, and user-friendly ebooks. From the gorgeous gorges of Ithaca, New York, we publish the paperback books The Zorba Anthology of Love Stories, The Ithaca Manual of Style, and a wild novel about love and eros (for adults) Thoreau Bound: A Utopian Romance in the Isles of Greece. We sponsor the blogs Epublishers Weekly (about technology and culture), and Youthtopia (launching soon), devoted to children and the sustainable life.

Our newest publication, in paperback and ebook formats (PDF and EPUB) is 50 Benefits of Ebooks: A Thinking Person's Guide to the Digital Reading Revolution. In March 2010 we published the first ebook edition of a modern classic, Michael Tobias's extraordinary novel, The Adventures of Mr Marigold. This was the first in our series of more than ten ebooks written by the renowned Tobias — as part of a unique Ebook Exhibition — many of these works have never before been published in any format.

New in 2011, our Earth-friendly works include The Terrestrial Gospel of Nikos Kazantzakis; and a free ebook edition of God's Country: The New Zealand Factor.

Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant, and interesting.

Aldous Huxley blessed us with those words and in radiant novels such as Brave New World and Island, he offers guidance for these hopefully changing times.

Dare to be bold, be free, be truthful. The great books (and their authors) help us to affirm our genuine selves: they give us courage to be unique.“Life's opportunities shrink or expand,” said Anais Nin, “in proportion to one's courage.” And e.e. cummings agreed: “To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”

Zorba's mission is to promote the innovative ideas and the daring books that nourish children and childhood, point the way to a culture of non-violence, create a sustainable future, and nurture— for every living being — a new world of love, kindness, courage, creativity, sincerity, and peace.
