Who is Pinter & Martin?

Pinter & Martin is an independent publishing company based in the UK. Most of our books are distributed worldwide. Pinter & Martin was founded on May 9th, 1997 by the writer and film-maker Martin Wagner and childbirth educator Maria Pinter, when we realised that Stanley Milgram's extraordinary book Obedience to Authority was out of print in the UK.

We specialise in books by authors who dare to think differently and challenge the status quo. Our main interests are pregnancy, birth & parenting, psychology, health & nutrition and yoga.

I never heard of you. How can I be sure of getting my books?

We have been trading since 1997 and pride ourselves in sending you the books as quickly as possible. We are also selling books as an Amazon Marketplace trader and you can check the feedback we get from our Amazon customers here.

I really like a book you publish. Is there anything I can do to help?

Yes, please! The biggest help is reviewing our books on sites like Amazon, The Book Depository, Waterstones or Blackwell's. It really helps and is very much appreciated. Or if you have a website, please link to us.

I am a journalist or have a blog, and would like to review one of your titles, or want to be placed on your mailing list.

Please see the press information here.

One of my favourite books is out of print, can I tell you about it?

Please do! If you know of any books that are out of print and you feel deserve to be republished please drop us a line. We found two of our books this way.

Will you publish my book?

See the submissions page.

Will you produce my play/film?

No, sorry. We only rarely produce plays and films, and then only from our own material.

How do I contact your authors?

Send us an email or letter and we will try and forward it to the author. It may take a considerable time to get any response, if appropriate. Some of our authors don't do email.

Who designs your covers?

Our artwork designers include Bogus Machnik at Spiral Path Design, Anders Bundgaard at Klor, Blok Graphic, Thorsten Knaub and Andy Walker.

Do you offer any quantity discounts?

Yes. Please see our discounts page.

You only have x number of books in stock, but I want more. Can you help?

The stock levels on the website reflect the number of books we have at our offices - in most cases we have many more in our warehouse. Contact us if you have larger orders.

I have a question that is not answered here.
