Del Sol Press seeks to publish exceptional work by both new and recognized writers,
as well as republish literary works that we consider extremely significant
and that have gone out of print. Our approach is eclectic, but our emphasis
is on original, unique, and accessible work WITH AN EDGE. As such, we
eschew noncommunicative forms (language poetry rip-offs, Finnegan's
Wake imitations, and so forth) and genre fiction (unless exceptional).
