Sterling Books

Flying Point Press focuses on narrative nonfiction and historic fiction for readers ages ten to fifteen. They believe that books for young readers should be full of action and adventure, with real-life characters that are bold, active, and heroic.

Recently, the publisher, Steven Hill wrote and said that as a boy he was a fan of the Landmark Series books and recall begging for more of them for Christmas and his birthday. He commented that he still owns some of those old Landmark books and has shared them with his own children, but a few years ago he noticed that there were few books like the Landmarks being published today and he decided to do something about it. He set out to re-publish a series of books using the old Landmark titles along with other out-of-print books that his partner, Peggy Hogan and he found. They also are adding new titles by contemporary authors to the series. They offer twenty-three titles with four more in production.

He mentioned that they have re-designed the covers and interiors to appeal to today’s young readers and have included end-paper maps because they remember being very excited about books with end-paper maps when they were young. Some of the books have diagrams, illustrations and photographs where appropriate, but the texts of the books have not changed.

You can check out the books in their collection here.
