“How it is possible that I did not know this existed until now?”

‘Opening Slightly Foxed triggered one of those moments when you have to ask yourself, “How it is possible that I did not know this existed until now?” Slightly Foxed features short pieces by authors and contributors who each write about a book or author they enjoy.

It’s kind of like Nick Hornby’s column in the Believer – it will likely give you a lot of ideas of things you’d like to read someday, but it’s also enjoyable to just read someone’s description and stories about a book they love.’ Books, The Universe & Everything

A heartfelt celebration of writing that has stood the test of time . . . committedly eclectic

Slightly Foxed - The magazine, podcast and small press for people who love books

Slightly Foxed is the lively and independent literary magazine for people who love books. Companionable, entertaining and elegantly produced, Slightly Foxed puts its readers in touch with a world of interesting and often forgotten books. Within its striking covers (usually specially commissioned from British artists) its readers discover recommendations for good reading written by booklovers from all walks of life, from celebrated authors, up-and-coming writers, librarians and booksellers, to the general public. What all its contributors have in common is a passion for a particular book or author that they love. Printed in England by traditional craftsmen printers, Slightly Foxed strikes a blow for lasting quality in content and presentation – for the small and individual against the corporate and the mass produced.

Backlist Review Requests

Due to our high production values any books or copies of the quarterly that are less-than-perfect will not be sold to readers. This means we have a small rolling stock of back issues of the quarterly and various back list titles that can be sent out for free to potential reviewers on request. These publications may have slightly creased corners or be scuffed or marked but are otherwise perfect.
