Dark Helix Press publishes extraordinary books for extraordinary people!

Dark Helix Press is an indie press based in Toronto

We publish fiction, non-fiction, YA/children’s books in various categories from literary to speculative fiction. Since opening in 2014, we believe strongly in giving diverse voices an opportunity to join the publishing landscape!

Extraordinary books for extraordinary people!

Our mission is to break down cultural stereotypes through inclusive storytelling. In this global world, people are different, yet we are also the same. There is one human race and we should share our stories without fear. Eventually we hope the day will come in which there is no need for the label “diverse fiction” as it will be a norm.

If you are a reader looking for a new perspective into our world and beyond, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the dark side  er, family!
