Take a trip with 1500 Books

All our books have a great story, well told.  You can't help but feel that you are there...as if you were spending an evening with the narrator...even when their story is from far away or long ago.

The reading experience is a consistent one — always gripping and informative — yet each author's voice is unique as they take us from the courts of Louis XIV to life with gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson to a pirate's journey around the world to a stakeout with the Pinkertons.

Many of our books are in paperback in the U.S. for the first time.  They have all been redesigned with the modern reader in mind.
