Tarragon Books: a regional independent press publishing Pacific Northwest novelists of “fusion fiction” – stories that challenge boundaries of genre and delineations of reality.

Tarragon Press joins the groundswell of small, independent publishers that are increasingly vital voices as the large commercial publishers merge into media conglomerates.  Launched with the assistance of private patrons of the arts who saw the need to provide more exposure for regional novelists, the press is dedicated to the belief that fiction can be both entertaining and thought-provoking.

Tarragon is the Dragon-herb. Our colophon is inspired by a Viking petroglyph of the winged serpent embodying wisdom and power.
