Pike and Powder Publishing Group Formed

Winged Hussar Publishing, Point Pleasant, N.J., and New England Publishing Associates, Lawrence, N.J., have formed a new publishing house, Pike and Powder Publishing Group, that will specialize in books on military and social history, and quality historical fiction and science fiction for all ages. Pike and Powder will combine the imprints the Knox Press, the Nafziger Collection, Winged Hussar and Zmok Books; two new imprints, Liberty Bell Press and Poplar Press, will be launched next year. Pike and Powder will be distributed by Simon & Schuster worldwide.

Recent releases from Pike and Powder include Halsey's Bluff, a novel by Larry Schweikart; The Art of Giuseppe Rava, a collection of military art through the ages; and Crossroads of the Revolution: Trenton 1774 to 1783 by William L. Kidder.

Winged Hussar Publishing was formed in 2012 by Vincent Rospond, who has more than 25 years of experience in publishing and is editor of The Journal of America's Military Past. The press has focused on military history with an Eastern European bent and includes the Nafziger Collection, a series of military history titles, and Zmok Books, which publishes science fiction and fantasy, adventure and horror for original and genre books, such as the Great Martian War series.

New England Publishing Associates, a literary agency and book packager since 1983, was purchased by Roger S. Williams in 2010. In 2016, NEPA launched the Knox Press, publishing works of American military history. NEPA will continue to operate two divisions: property rights promotion and management under RogerWilliamsAgency.com and the publishing group under its Knox Press, Poplar Press and Liberty Bell Press imprints. Williams has worked in the book world for more than 38 years, as a bookseller a sales rep, sales director and literary agent.
