Linnet And Archon Books

Goodbye, Shoe String, Goodbye!

The Shoe String Press has ceased bookselling operations as of April 15, 2005, after fifty-three years of continuous business.

If you are interested in any of the 2,000+ titles ever published by the Press under its Archon, Linnet, or Shoe String imprints, please contact us. We may be able to help you find the book you are looking for elsewhere.

To everyone who ever bought one of our books, thank you! You helped well over 100 people, during the course of years, make a living doing what they enjoyed. You supported us in publishing the books we felt were necessary, and together, we hope, we contributed something worthwhile to the reading and thinking world.

We leave now simply because it is time. It’s been a long run and a good one for a small press with a funny name, and though this is bittersweet, it is also exciting. Who knows what’s down the road?

Again, thank you for caring about our books. We’ll miss you all.
