What we publish

Hodder has a centuries long tradition of publishing some of fiction’s most mind-bending, spine-tingling, genre-defying books, including literary legends such as Stephen King, and Frank Herbert.

The Hodderscape list spans galaxies and timelines, worlds and species, from sci-fi sensations such as Becky Chambers The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, or the magical world of Stephanie Garber’s Caraval, to Chloe Gong’s deadly 1930s Shanghai retelling of Romeo and Juliet, Kerri Maniscalco’s dark magic trilogy Kingdom of the Wicked and the viral TikTok fantasy romance These Hollow Vows by Lexi Ryan.

Wherever you want to go – we’ve got the book to take you there.

A few words about our logo 

Like many readers of Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series, we fell in love with Thursday’s adorable domesticated dodo Pickwick. Though we wanted to clone a dodo of our very own, a few people had reservations about a dodo frolicking around the office, and we lacked the technology. So we got Sarah Anne Langton to design us our first dodo, and thus Pickwick the Hodderscape logo was hatched. You can see her original form here, and marvel at how she hasn’t aged a day.

Our dodo was reborn in 2018, with a stunning new design by Sofia Hericson. You can read more about Pickwick’s journey here, and see her in all her colourful and glorious costumes elsewhere around our site.
