FIFTH COLUMN PRESS: Producing quality eBooks and paperbacks since 2006

DEFINITION: [Noun] - Historically, a 'fifth column' is a group of people or an entity whose activities serve to clandestinely undermine a larger group such as a nation state or, in this case, the traditional heavy-hitters of the publishing industry. A fifth column also euphemistically refers to the fifth but nonexistent column in a newspaper.
