Agog! Press was an independent Australian book publisher, specializing in speculative fiction short story collections. Founded in 2002 by Cat Sparks, the press published nine anthologies of speculative fiction. Agog! Press shut down in 2008 after publishing its final anthology, Canterbury 2100: Pilgrimages in a new world, because Cat Sparks and Rob Hood intended to focus more on their own writing.

In 2006 Agog! Press forged a collaboration with United States publisher Prime Books, which has led to international (US) distribution of Agog! titles in both hard and soft cover.
