Wildside Press is an independent publishing company located in Maryland, USA. It was founded in 1989 by John Betancourt and Kim Betancourt. While the press was originally conceived as a publisher of speculative fiction in both trade and limited editions, it has broadened out somewhat since then, both in content and format. It now publishes mysteries and nonfiction, as well as eBooks and magazines. Wildside Press has published approximately ten thousand books through print on demand and traditional means.

The company has published work by a number of contemporary writers, including Lloyd Biggle, Jr., Alan Dean Foster, Paul Di Filippo, Esther Friesner, S. T. Joshi, Paul Levinson, Nick Mamatas, Brian McNaughton, Vera Nazarian, Paul Park, Tim Pratt, Stephen Mark Rainey, Alan Rodgers, Darrell Schweitzer, Lawrence Watt-Evans, and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro.

In addition to newer writers, the company works at keeping of older authors in print, such as James Branch Cabell, H. Rider Haggard, and Clark Ashton Smith, as well as lesser known scribes like R. A. Lafferty. The publisher also has a specialty reprint project going, reproducing old issues of such pulp magazines as The Phantom Detective, Secret Agent X, and The Spider.

Wildside Press has also published a ten book series called 'Weird Works of Robert E. Howard', which consist of Robert E. Howard's entire work for the pulp magazine Weird Tales, restored to its original magazine texts.
