Like many foolhardy ideas, The Book Smugglers was born of a time of great adversity. Faced with threats from their significant others concerning the overwhelming volume of books purchased on a daily basis, Ana Grilo and Thea James resorted to "smuggling" books home in huge handbags to avoid scrutiny. In 2008, the devious duo founded The Book Smugglers - a review blog dedicated to speculative and genre fiction for all ages, and an outlet for Ana and Thea's bottomless obsession with books and assorted SFF popgeekery. In 2014, they launched Book Smugglers Publishing, an electronic publisher of SFF short stories for all ages with a focus on diverse voices and perspectives. Book Smugglers Publishing will release 6 short stories in 2014.
