Announcing Nightboat New Year’s Promotions!

Happy New Year from Nightboat Books!

In 2021, we debuted our subscription program–offering subscribers our complete annual catalog at a 25% discount–and were delighted by the response. For 2022, we’re excited to share that we’ll be revamping our subscription program, and introducing a few new other ways to stay up-to-date with the Nightboat catalog! 

Meanwhile, if you’re still looking for a last-minute holiday gift, or if you’re not sure where to start exploring the Nightboat catalog, keep reading for our staff-curated reading lists, organized by interest.

Nightboat subscriptions are a perfect gift for the lover of provocative and risk-taking literature in your life (even if that someone is you!). Scroll down to see what we have in store for you:




Beginning in 2022, Nightboat subscriptions will run alongside the calendar year. Your subscription will begin this January 2022, and end in December 2022!

In 2022, subscribers will receive over twenty new books by Wayne Koestenbaum, Angel Dominguez, Gabriel Ojeda-Sagué, Sueyeun Juliette Lee, Ronaldo Wilson, Kamden Ishmael Hilliard, Tiff Dressen, Wo Chan, Marwa Helal, Douglas Crase, Tatiana Luboviski-Acosta, Anne Waldman & Emma Gomis, Kay Gabriel, imogen xtian smith, Eleni Stecopoulos, Aurora, Chia-Lun Chang, and Hervé Guibert.

Every subscription contributes to our longevity during these uncertain times. It helps us pay upcoming printer bills and make author payments, supporting us as we work tirelessly in our efforts to publish writing that resists convention. 

If you’re able to make a tax deductible donation we invite you to support us at a higher level by becoming a Planetary, Galactic or Interstellar subscriber! Donors will be acknowledged on our website and, for those who give $250 or more per year, in the back of future Nightboat titles.
