Welcome to the Hercules Editions
We are pleased to announce our Christmas sale, offering 50% off selected titles. And if you order three or more books (of whatever combination of titles), you will get a FREE copy of The Wandering Mountains by David Wheatley, the first volume in the new Hercules Papers series of essays by poets we launched earlier this year.
This offer runs until the end of December 2020, but if you want the books to arrive in time for Christmas, we recommend that you order before the 11th of December for international orders and before the 18th for UK orders.

Hercules Editions was founded by poet Tamar Yoseloff and designer and art editor Vici MacDonald in 2012, with the aim of bringing together new poems with visual imagery. Their first publication, Formerly (featuring Tamar’s sonnets in response to Vici’s photographs of liminal London spaces) was hailed by Owen Hatherley as “a direct and quietly urgent dispatch from a familiar but disappearing London”. It was shortlisted for the prestigious Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry.
Since then Hercules Editions has produced Heart Archives by Sue Rose, Ormonde by Hannah Lowe (selected by Colin Grant as one of five essential books on the Windrush generation – see here), Silents by Claire Crowther, Hammersmith by Sean O’Brien, Rubaiyat for the Martyrs of Two Wars by Ruth Valentine, A Bargain with the Light: Poems after Lee Miller by Jacqueline Saphra, The Singing Glacier by Helen Mort, The Practical Visionary by Chris McCabe and Sophie Herxheimer, and The Gospel of Trickster by Nancy Charley, and Cargo of Limbs by Martyn Crucefix.
In spring 2020, Jacqueline Saphra’s second book with Hercules Editions, Veritas: Poems after Artemisia, was published, and in July 2020 out new series of essays by poets, Hercules Papers, was inaugurated with The Wandering Mountains by poet and critic David Wheatley.
Our latest poetry chapbook, The Nine Mothers of Heimdallr by Miriam Nash, was published in October 2020.
