A PUBLISHING IMPRINT FOR EARTH, SPACE & THE FUTURE
Habitable Press is operated by scientists and educators who are passionate about bridging the gap between academic and everyday knowledge. Our goal is to increase the accessibility of creative works that apply knowledge of the Earth and space sciences toward thinking about the future.
FEATURING INTERDISCIPLINARY AND TRANSDISCIPLINARY FICTION AND NON-FICTION
We strive to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries across the physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Our core areas of focus are science-informed fiction, educational non-fiction, and unearthed classics.
Science provides a lens for viewing the future
We publish science-informed fiction with an imaginative outlook on the future.
All our fiction is written by scientists, scholars, and experts to provide unique perspectives that synthesize research with storytelling.
Tales From Spaceship Earth, the first volume of the Blue Marble Space Short Story Collection, was released in March 2016.
Linking educators, scientists & communicators for effective outreach
We develop educational non-fiction for distribution to classrooms across the nation and world.
Lessons are written by experts in educational practice, interdisciplinary research, and public communication.
We work closely with our partner organization The Wrinkled Brain Project to generate innovative educational content.
Restoring valuable content in the public domain
We reintroduce unearthed classics from history that provide novel insight about our world today.
Our efforts include collections of influential papers, revitalization of classic manuscripts, and restoration of unpublished works.
Distribution of public domain works through our partner organization SAGANet provides an effective means for reaching a global audience.
