Did you know that some of our bestselling books at Fountain are small press titles?
Today we celebrate the underdog writers...the mavericks and the believers! Come meet these brave scribe warriors who are putting themselves out there, sometimes at their own expense because they've got a story to tell.
Who is in their company?

Lawrence, Thomas Paine, Edgar Allan Poe, Ezra Pound, Carl Sandburg, George Bernard Shaw, Upton Sinclair, Gertrude Stein, Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, and Mark Twain.
