Publisher info

Gorillas With Scissors Press (GWS Press) is dedicated to bringing entertaining genre fiction and non fiction works to the reader for low prices. I would like to say that we are a gang of literary monkeys but in reality it's just me (Josh Hilden) wearing all the hats that I can and subcontracting the work I am not qualified to perform (Cover Art Mainly) or the work I don't have the time to do on my own.

I hope you enjoy the work produced by The Monkey House and that you stay with us as we grow and expand.
