Readers, Welcome to Zorba Press!

An independent publisher, Zorba produces books, audio books, and user-friendly ebooks. From the the gorgeous gorges of Ithaca, New York, we publish the paperback books The Zorba Anthology of Love Stories, and The Ithaca Manual of Style. 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 January 2010 we will publish the first ebook edition of a modern classic, Michael Tobias's extraordinary novel, The Adventures of Mr Marigold. This will be 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.

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. “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.”

The great books help us to affirm our genuine selves: they give us courage to be unique. 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 world of kindness, courage, creativity, sincerity, and peace.
