Porphyry Press Launches With Ghost Town Title

Add one more book publisher to the small businesses of Alaska: this one inside Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.

Recently announced, Porphyry Press is located in McCarthy, Alaska. The first Porphyry Press title will be Tom Kizzia’s Cold Mountain Path: The Ghost Town Decades of McCarthy-Kennecott, to be published later this year.

The publisher hopes to follow this up with lyric essay collections, poetry, literary field guides, anthologies, and translations. Learn more at the website porphyry.press.
