Stelliform books are at the forefront of conversations about culture and climate change.
We’re a small press publishing out of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. We focus on genre (SFFH) and literary fiction and creative non-fiction which takes up the conversation around the climate emergency and an intersectional view of environmental justice. We invite you to join us in reshaping nature/culture relationships through the stories we tell ourselves and each other. Welcome. We’re so glad you’re here.
