    There are thousands of small publishers, small presses and individuals in Britain
    currently producing textbooks, monographs, novels, poetry, journals,
    newspapers and other, non-standard, publications. Their output ranges from the
    stocklists of such long-standing political publishers as Pluto and Verso, to the
    more idiosyncratic and erratic publishers of The Bug and Mark’s Little Book
    about Kinder Eggs (of which more later). Political and social commentaries;
    humour and satire; poetry and drama; environmental issues; sexual politics:
    every topic that might be encountered on the shelves of any library will have its
    counterpart in the alternative press. Furthermore, the small presses will often
    provide publications on topics never found on library shelves or, for that matter,
    never even dreamed of by many people.
