Founded in 1971, Dorchester Publishing was noted mainly for their paperback romance line. Later they published westerns, thrillers, and were the original imprint of the Hard Case Crime titles. During the late 1990’s and 2000’s their Leisure Horror imprint was the preeminent source for fans of horror fiction. They even offered a Horror Book Club where readers would receive two titles a month at reduced prices.
With authors like Richard Laymon, Jack Ketchum, Dennis Etchison, Ray Garton and Edward Lee, Leisure Horror was the purveyor of some of the most top-notch books in contemporary horror. Beset by financial trouble, Dorchester dropped its book clubs and was late or negligent on paying its authors. Eventually, the company crumbled under the weight of debt and poor marketing. Fortunately, it left behind a legacy of horror for readers to continue to enjoy.
