Bloodhound Books

A Leading Independent publisher of crime and thriller fiction

Bloodhound Books is a leading independent crime fiction publisher based in Cambridge, UK. We specialise in crime, thrillers, mystery & chillers. 

We dock our cap to Faber & Faber...

To borrow a phrase from Winston Churchill, "The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty"... well the traditional publishing industry has certainly had its glass half-full as the global book market has undergone seismic shifts over the last few years. Slow to embrace the e-book, bickering with Amazon over royalty rates and adopting the same old tired marketing, the big hitters have lurched from crisis to crisis, whilst independent publishers and authors have gone from strength to strength.

The news that Faber, publisher of T.S Elliot and James Joyce, has opened up a pop-up store in London's Soho this month is a refreshingly innovative move from a distinguished old publisher. After all we are in the era of the pop-up restaurant and the pop-up vintage store, so why not a pop-up book store? Good luck to them and maybe Bloodhound Books can one day follow suit...
