About Us

“Although it is sheer madness to publish bad books, it is very difficult to publish good ones.”
– Erasmus (1469 – 1536)

UKA Press was created to publish fresh, exciting work by talented writers from around the world. We’re looking for originality, sparkle and the promise of something unexpected. Genre and style aren’t important; quality is.


Huge congratulations go to renowned UKA Press author and film documentarian Kevin Brownlow (The Search for Charlie Chaplin, Winstanley, Warts and All and How It Happened Here) who, together with Francis Ford Coppola, Jean-Luc Godard and actor Eli Wallach, will receive a Motion Picture Academy Award Honorary Oscar for his contribution and dedication to the preservation and restoration of silent film in Hollywood on 13th November 2010.
