Steerforth Press

Steerforth Press was founded in 1993. Our only tests of a book’s worth are whether it has been written well, is intended to engage the full attention of the reader, and has something new or important to say.

“Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it.” — Hannah  Arendt “History is not served when reporters prize trepidation and propriety over the robust journalistic duty to tell the whole story.” — Randy Shilts “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.” — Daniel Patrick Moynihan

“If someone were to ask me what three books they should read to understand what happened in Vietnam, I would say: Street Without Joy . . . Honorable Men . . . and War of Numbers — Lt. Col. H. Thomas Hayden, The Marine Corps Gazette

2000 & 2017

“An exposé of the intellectual arrogance that permeated the race to explore the Arctic region.” — Library Journal (starred review)


“Sheeran’s confession that he killed Hoffa . . . is supported by the forensic evidence, is entirely credible, and solves the Hoffa mystery.” — Michael Baden M.D., former Chief Medical Examiner of the City of New York


“A copy of [this] masterpiece should be in every library in the country, including schools. No value can be placed on its worth, not only from the stock car racing side, but from the black history aspect.” — Morris Stephenson in The Franklin News-Post


“What if nearly everything you thought you knew about Matthew Shepard’s murder was wrong? . . . None of this is idle speculation; it’s the fruit of years of dogged investigation by journalist Stephen Jimenez, himself gay.” — Aaron Hicklin, Editor-in-Chief of Out magazine, in The Advocate

Coming 2018


“Ike’s Mystery Man is an important, deeply researched contribution to the history of one of the sorrier episodes in American history — a time when, during the height of the McCarthy era, thousands of government workers were driven from their jobs or barred from ever getting one because they were gay . . . This is a book that deserves, and is sure to get, a wide audience.” — Michael Isikoff, co-author of Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump
