Berserkr Press

Founded in 1994 Berserkr Press is a micro-publisher.

We seldom publish more than one or two books a year.

We have a very limited marketing budget.

We like the connection between social action and spirituality.

We do not publish novels.

We do publish plays that have received at least one commercial production (either a ticket price, or an Equity cast.) 

And very occasionally poetry.

The Legend of the Berserkr

It is said of King Haraldur that he had ten picked berserkrs in the prow of his dragon ship. When the berserkrs went into battle they took their armour off and it was said that swords would not cut them. It thus seemed to us a symbol of that special combination of vulnerability and courage which we seek.

Note: we use the Icelandic spelling.
