Passager is affiliated with the University of Baltimore, and all funds must be processed through the University System of Maryland. We offer two options for bookstore ordering: through Small Press Distribution and through consignment.

You can visit Small Press Distribution at to order from Passager Books.

Our consignment rate is 60:40, offering bookstores a 40% discount on cover prices. If you are interested in ordering directly from Passager, please email your order to

About Pre-ordering:

Upcoming titles will be available for pre-order as many as 6 weeks before their publication date, while the book is still being produced at the printer. This means that several weeks may pass between the time you place your order and the time the book arrives in your mailbox.

Books for pre-order will be specified as such on the individual book’s page on our website, and again on it’s page on the online store. Titles otherwise unmarked are currently in stock.

About our Authors:

We like to build a relationship with our authors and their work, which is why Passager Books only considers manuscripts from writers who have first been published in our journal.
