A Purgatory of Literary Mirth and Mischief
POOR SOULS PRESS / Scaramouche Books was originally established in 1975 under the small press imprint Scarecrow Books. In 1980 it became a subsidiary of Yossarian Universal News Service (YU) and joined a growing number of other imprints under the YU News Service banner. For over forty years it has maintained its literary presence as a publisher of books, chapbooks, mini-books, broadsides, magazines, dispatches, manifestos, post cards, flyers and posters with an emphasis and focus on works that explore the art of satire.
In addition to its own titles, POOR SOULS PRESS / Scaramouche Books is also the exclusive distributor of select titles from other small press publishers, including Alt-Poetry, Blighter's Almanac Press, Greydog Press, Malignant Press, My Daily Dope, Poetry Hash Press, and Wagon Train Books.
