Black Apollo Press is an independent publisher based in Cambridge, England. It was founded in 1995 by American writer Bob Biderman and British Baudelarian scholar, David Kelley.[1] As well as publishing original translations of important European authors, including the French existentialist playwright Jean Tardieu and Armenian dissident Gurgen Mahari,[2] the press has brought back into print a group of late Victorian writers such as Margaret Harkness,[3] Amy Levy and Israel Zangwill. Black Apollo has also helped develop a series of art books jointly sponsored by Trinity College, Cambridge, and the French Cultural service. Their backlist [4] includes works of contemporary fiction, poetry and non-fiction titles in media studies,[5] social history and politics. An imprint of the press is Black Apollo Mysteries which publishes socially engaged thrillers including the Joseph Radkin Investigations series.[6]
