The Dzanc Books rEprint Series is dedicated to publishing great works of contemporary literature that have not been done as eBooks yet.

As part of our mission to publish great works of literary fiction and nonfiction, Dzanc Books has expanded its publishing to include eBooks. Working with a great staff and distribution, Dzanc has created its rEprint series, the first of its kind, specifically dedicated to bringing back in eBook form works of deserving authors. Included in our current and forthcoming list of some 350 titles are Stephen Dixon, Michael Martone, Merrill Joan Gerber, Charles Johnson, Jonathan Baumbach, Joseph McElroy, Stephen Graham Jones and National Book Award winner Ellen Gilchrist. Dzanc provides all authors with a generous 50% royalty. It is Dzanc's plan to increase our eBook list to over 1000 titles in 2012 for readers to enjoy.

The process to convert these out of print titles is both time consuming and costly with Dzanc Books spending over $250 per title prior to their being available to readers. Raising the $3500 through this Kickstarter Project will help us offset costs and allow us to bring more books into the rEprint Series and at a more rapid pace.

These works are made available by Dzanc to the reading public in the form of eBooks compatible with all currently available eBook platforms, distributed both directly from Dzanc and through eBook resellers.

This series originates out of a belief that many of these titles did not have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential audiences in the time of their original publication, and that a second chance for achieving a wider readership is long overdue. By bringing them back into print in widely-available electronic formats, Dzanc hope to restart the critical conversations around these books, and to get them into the hands of the enthusiastic readers they each deserve. Just as the eBook revoluation has put an always-connected bookstore in the hands of every participating reader, we believe that our rEprint series is an important and innovative part of ensuring that bookstore's virtual shelves are stocked with beautiful editions of these titles, all among the very best books of the preceding decades.
