About Us

Improbable Press

Born in London in 2015, Improbable Press tells fantastic genre stories by and about women, people of colour, LGBTQIA+, and more.

Whether the protagonists are two robots and a disabled human, a black ace person and a pansexual ghost, a trans white woman and a neurodivergent Asian man, Improbable Press is about banishing stereotypes, one book at a time. 

Sure, our characters deal with darkness and maybe their happily ever after is as simple as moving hand-in-hand through a post-apocalyptic world—the key is that every book Improbable Press publishes gives its characters adventure, romance, and ends with hope.

So write us a romance! Urban fantasy! Contemporary supernatural! We love mysteries, science fiction, we love it all so if go genre, we want to know about it. Who's we? Well…
