Skyhorse Publishing, one of the fastest-growing independent book publishers in the United States, was launched in September 2006 by Tony Lyons, former president and publisher of the Lyons Press. The company has had forty-six New York Times bestsellers and has over 6,500 titles in print.
Skyhorse is dedicated to publishing books that make people’s lives better, whether that means teaching them a hobby, bringing them a unique and important story, or encouraging them to fight against injustices, conspiracies, or abuses of power. The company maintains a firm stance against censorship and aims to provide a full spectrum of political, theological, cultural, and philosophical viewpoints to counter the increasingly biased environment in mainstream media.
Through its eighteen imprints, Skyhorse publishes an eclectic and maverick list of titles. Its imprints — Allworth Press, Arcade Publishing, Carrel Books, Clydesdale Press, Gary Null Publishing, Good Books, Helios Press, Hot Books, Night Shade Books, Not For Tourists, Racehorse Publishing, Racehorse For Young Readers, Seahorse Press, Sky Pony Press, Sports Publishing, Talos Press, Yucca Publishing, and Skyhorse Publishing — cover everything from nature, sports, country living, history, reference, travel, humor, health, art, business, philosophy, religion, politics, investigative and conspiracy, to fiction, literary nonfiction, science fiction, fantasy, and young adult and children’s literature. Its backlist includes more than six thousand titles. Skyhorse is distributed by Two Rivers Distribution (formerly Perseus Distribution) in the United States and overseas, and by Thomas Allen & Son in Canada.
