Who Is Publishing Good Books Today?

Who is publishing good books today? I found myself wondering which publishers are releasing the kind of books that end up in my mailbox and the kind of books that are then read and reviewed. I don’t mean to say that I am the final arbiter of which books are good and which are not; rather, like everyone else, I read and form opinions and, at the end, either recommend or don’t recommend.

I went back through the book review archives, looked at the books I have reviewed positively over the past several months, and jotted down the publishers. I was surprised and encouraged to see just how many different publishers are represented here. It turns out that a lot of publishers are releasing lots of excellent books.

A couple of notes: I did not include Cruciform Press in this list, though I am confident that we are publishing good books too. Also, this is not at all an exhaustive list as there are other quality publishers whose books I have not read recently.
