About the publishing house

Magic Mongrel Publishers is an independent publishing house based in South India that is committed to publishing unconventional narratives in literary fiction. 

We seek innovative works of literature from new and established authors with a focus on bringing out contemporary voices from South India. 

We specialise in novellas and collections of short stories, but really, we are all ears for any genre-defying work of literature that does not seem to quite fit in anywhere, that which explores craft and the nuances of the literary landscape.
