The series focuses on contemporary literature and culture through book-length original works and reprints of classics. Authors will be those new to publication and those who are well known. Titles will include new works and new editions of previously published works by established authors. Titles will include, but not be limited to, novels, anthologies, collections, critical studies, and narratives. Each title will be written both for general readers and for students and scholars in their respective disciplines. The goal is to have each volume embody the best of its field and fairly represent its society and culture.
