Repeater Books is a publishing imprint based in London, founded in 2014 by Tariq Goddard and Mark Fisher, formerly the founders of radical publishers Zero Books, along with Etan Ilfeld and Phil Jourdan.[1][2]

Formation[edit]

In 2014, after disagreements with their parent company John Hunt Publishing[3], Tariq Goddard and Mark Fisher, as well as other founder Matteo Mandarini, editor Alex Niven and publicist Tamar Shlaim, resigned, and formed new imprint Repeater Books.[4]

In 2015, Repeater Books published its first two titles: The Isle of Minimus, an experimental novel by M. K. L. Murphy; and Lean Out, a feminist polemic by The Guardian columnist Dawn Foster. They have since published books by Mark Fisher, David Stubbs, Christiana Spens, Terence Stamp and Steven Shaviro, amongst others.

Watkins Media[edit]

Repeater Books is an imprint within Watkins Media[5], a publishing organisation owned by entrepreneur Etan Ilfeld[6], whose imprints also include Angry Robot and Nourish, as well as London's famous esoteric bookshop Watkins Books.[7]
