History[edit]

The release of Catherine Kidd's early works, such as everything I know about love I learned from taxidermy in 1996, brought a "modest" amount of publicity for the company, allowing them to expand and publish more of Kidd's works and works from other authors.[4]

In 2006, for the ten-year anniversary of the company, Brown commissioned "new work from all the people he has published through the decade to include in a lovely, fuchsia-covered, juicy little book called The Portable Conundrum." The release of the anthology included a large party with all of the contributing authors attending and special readings from the authors' individual works.[5]
