Cuidono Press publishes fiction, historical fiction, and history. We look for narratives that take history and culture seriously, whether in service to a great story or in laying out thought-provoking argument. While we are based in Brooklyn, our non-historical fiction so far has all been set outside the United States—that is not at all a requirement of the projects we consider, but reflects the types of themes and explorations that intrigue us.
