Paper Road Press is a New Zealand publisher of ‘books from beyond the beaten track’ – compelling stories that explore new horizons, that poke holes in old genres and stitch them up with something new.

A ‘paper road’ is a road that officially exists, but actually doesn’t. You can find it on a map, even on published plans – but good luck trying to walk down it. Paper Road Press publishes stories about similarly hard-to-find places. Our books map out might-have-beens, could-yet-bes, and wouldn’t-it-be-cool-ifs. They are, however, yet to be the subject of any cartographic efforts.

Paper Road Press was founded in 2013 and is currently on hiatus.
