Buckminster Fuller

Pioneering publisher and rebel Glenn Thompson is the inspiration for earthRise Books.

I am one of the many people Glenn mentored and encouraged to be the best human being you could possibly be, and to use your life and abilities to create positive change.

Glenn was publisher of Writers and Readers Inc. Harlem River Press, and Black Butterfly Children’s Books.  Born Harlem, 20 September 1940. Died London, 7 September 2001


is a new, independent publishing house specializing in radical works of fiction, politics, the arts, poetry, alternative culture, human rights and environmental justice.

We have entered the world with 3 challenging, distinctive, and creative works of oral histories—from north London suburb to Soho via Ecuador, all 3 books truly exemplify the spirit, values and intentions of earthRise.

All of our forthcoming publications are, in varying degrees, about confronting the abuse of power over people, politics and the environment.
