Our name, Pale Fire, was taken from Nabokov’s book-length poem published in 1962. Nabokov borrowed the title from Shakespeare — “The moon’s an arrant thief, and her pale fire she snatches from the sun” — fashioning with it a bold literary experiment steeped in centuries of tradition.

We at Pale Fire Press aim to carry forward that experiment by preserving what is best in literature while brazenly breaking any rule that stands in the way of vibrant, lucid storytelling.
