STARHAVEN was founded in La Jolla, California in 1978 by the poet Martha Stevens. It was intended to publish works of belles-lettres – principally short fiction and essays. ‘Starhaven’ was the name of Ms Stevens’ retreat in the lakelands of north Minnesota.

Starhaven was revived in the mid-1990s in London by one of its original authors. Its titles are published in small editions, often with reproductions of original works of art incorporated into their covers.

Starhaven distributes its own titles and is grateful for the friendship of several of the finest bookshops in Europe and America, including among others Daunt Books and John Sandoe Books in London, Shakespeare and Company in Paris and D.G. Wills Books in La Jolla CA.
