Editorial Focus

Half Mystic Press, established in 2015, is an international and independent publishing house dedicated to the celebration of music in all its forms.

Tips From the Editor

We are interested in music, in every form that takes. More specifically: we like books that are different from anything we’ve ever published, books that introduce music into their lexicon in stunning and surprising ways. We look for work that defies genre, accounts for the unaccountable, wakes us up, burns us whole. We generally gravitate to the lyrical over the straight-talking and the surreal over the down-to-earth—but also, we like to be surprised.
