Goose Lane Editions is Canada’s oldest independent publisher. For more than 60 years, we’ve believed in the power of words to inspire, to change, to enlighten. We believe that the pen can be more powerful than the sword and that ideas writ large are the most important resource on this small planet. We believe that stories both show who we are and who we might become – one word at a time.
Plunge into our catalogue, a treasury of human thought. Feed your soul with our novels, stories, poems. Let your mind wander through our books on history and travel, on nature and humanity, on human ingenuity and creativity. Feast your eyes on the works that have the power to inspire and to provoke. Immerse yourself in ideas new and old that have the power to change the course of history.
Sixty years after a group of curious idealists began this little company — to spread the word — we’re still here, still curious, still feeding the minds of readers, still making the word public — one book at time.
