Introducing a New Publishing Imprint for Emerging Voices
Introducing the publishing imprint of The Mantle’s online magazine
By: The Mantle
The Mantle’s imprint produces works along two main themes. The first line features original literature, poetry, theatre, and nonfiction by emerging writers and critics from around the world. Gambit: Newer African Writing (2014), which features ten young writers from across the African continent, is our initial text in this category. The second is the Critical Editions series, in which emerging critics revive, evaluate, and contextualize overlooked or underappreciated works of fiction and nonfiction. Our newly released book The Treatise of the Three Impostors (2015) by Anonymous—a radical critique of religious authority in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—is this series’ inaugural publication.
Shaun Randol, founder of The Mantle, is now the editor-in-chief of The Mantle’s online presence and is the imprint’s publisher.
Forthcoming titles from The Mantle include:
We are All Blue (Botswana): Two plays – Motswana and Blue, Black and White– by the actor and playwright Donald Molosi, including an introduction by Quette Masire, former president of Botswana.
The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner (Scotland) by James Hogg. For our Critical Editions series, The Mantle’s World Literature Editor, Ariell Cacciola, provides a new introduction.
The Feminist Emma Goldman (U.S.A.): A collection of feminist essays by the anarchist writer and activist, with an introduction and notes by the philosopher Marianne LeNabat. This is also an addition to the Critical Editions series.
