Xenos Books

Xenos Books is a publishing company in Grand Terrace, California that was founded in 1985 by Karl Kvitko and Verona Weiss.

Named with the Greek word meaning both "stranger" and "guest," the company publishes works that examine both the strange and the familiar. Karl Kvitko, the enigmatic Russian publisher, leans towards "experimental fiction, unusual memoirs and selected literary criticism, as well as translations of poetry and prose with facing original text (or, "dual-language editions")."
