The Recalcitrant Press isn't a publishing company in the traditional sense. Rather, it's a virtual press, an electronic imprint, a medium for making available literary work that would otherwise remain hidden.
The creation and dissemination of fiction, essays, and poetry doesn't need to be in the hands of a few large corporations. After all, inspiration rarely occurs in the conference room.
Writing exists in a different dimension. Reviewers and critics sometimes react as if fiction writers should actively attempt to "express their time." An intriguing alternative would be to write in order to redefine one's time, to unravel the everyday cliches and assumptions that surround us.
The Recalcitrant Press will seek to publish works that have been created outside the confines of the conventional structures.
