  ~ BEST OF SPD ~
a no-occasion celebration of SPD's Top 40

  I know, I know, you're sick of all the end of 2016 "Best of Whatever" lists. But this isn't just whatever (or well, it is, cause it's small press poetry ha ha)! And its definitely no longer the end of the year. But do we really need an occasion to celebrate some of the best-selling SPD books over the past few years? I don't think so.

Small Press publishing is a labour of love - we all do it literally for no personal gain - simply for the satisfaction of getting one-of-a-kind literature out to those who want to read it. So here's a no-occasion celebration of the best of what SPD has offered - the Top 40 Bestsellers - in our recent history. We're proud of them.
