LozLit: The Indie List

Welcome to The Indie List!

At the start of 2021, I compiled a list of bookshops that were still open during lockdown for all sorts of shopping, events and general uplifting spirit. I consciously left out independent publishers, many of whom sell their books through their own websites directly, to include them on a much bigger database of independent publishers across the UK and Ireland.

Use the buttons above to navigate the list and find publishers alphabetically.

If you are a publisher and would like to be included in the list, please drop me a message through the contact page or via my social media channels.

Publisher of the Month

Repeater Books

Repeater Books is dedicated to the creation of a new reality. The landscape of twenty-first-century arts and letters is faded and inert, riven by fashionable cynicism, egotistical self-reference and a nostalgia for the recent past. Repeater intends to add its voice to those movements that wish to enter history and assert control over its currents, gathering together scattered and isolated voices with those who have already called for an escape from Capitalist Realism. Our desire is to publish in every sphere and genre, combining vigorous dissent and a pragmatic willingness to succeed where messianic abstraction and quiescent co-option have stalled: abstention is not an option: we are alive and we don’t agree.

This map shows the publishers across the UK and Ireland that are currently on The Indie List (apart from those who are only online). Who’s your closest publisher?
