Everything is original. 
Everything is thrilling.

Everything is for sale.

Portal Press is Washington DC’s independent publisher of alternative fiction, memoirs, artwork, children’s books and cookbooks. We publish books of imagination and experience. They may come from some pretty strange places, but the world is strange, and every book is a portal into an undiscovered mind.
