Text Example

“… true literature can exist only where it is created not by diligent and trustworthy officials, but by madmen, hermits, heretics, dreamers, rebels and sceptics. But when a writer must be sensible and rigidly orthodox, when he must make himself useful today, when he cannot lash out at everyone like Swift or smile at everything like Anatole France, there can be no bronze literature, there can only be a paper literature, a newspaper literature, which is read today and used for wrapping soap tomorrow.” – Yevgeny Zamyatin, “I Am Afraid”

Vagabond Voices thanks Creative Scotland for its assistance in 2015.



Vagabond Voices is now offering a discounted rate to readers who wish to purchase 2 or more books from our 2016-2017 programme within the next year. This is a bit like a subscription service, but it’s only a one-time payment and it will not automatically renew once it expires (meaning you’ll only be charged once, unless you choose to subscribe again when our 2017-2018 programme is up).

With a few exceptions, our cover prices range from £11.95 to £14.95, so the following subscription options do offer a considerable discount. Please note that the 25% to 40% discount on our backlist is only available to readers who choose the 3- and 5-book subscription options.

*Subscriptions are only available to customers living in the UK.

Our subscription options are as follows:

2 books for £20

3 books for £30, including a year-long unlimited 25% discount on all Vagabond books published before September 2016

5 books for £48, including a year-long unlimited 40% discount on all Vagabond books published before September 2016
