Dark River Press
Dark River Press began in 1990. The name was inspired by
the Society for Creative Anachronism along the upper Mississippi
River, which calls itself The Shire of the Dark River. Our
first publication was The Cookie Anthology, a collection by
writers in the Quad Cities. When that sold out, plans were
made to broaden the scope of the company. Over the years,
we have published works by Lucile Eye, Norm Ross, Rosemary
Sage, Gladys Clark Minteer, and Diane Frank. Frank and Minteer's
works both went into second printings.
In 2000, the company decided to relocate to the West Coast.
The president and vice-president became sensitive to the issues
of the lumber business in the Northwest. Here, great swaths
of forested mountain land is laid bare so that America may
produce paper, books, fabric and homes. The owners, who had
previously been committed to printing chapbooks and novels
on paper, decided to go to the web to continue their publishing.
While there is special pleasure in holding a book in one's
hands, we firmly believe that the place a reader holds a story
is the heart. Thus, we bring you Coffee Break Escapes.
