    Respected/Notable Small Publishers

    I'm looking a shortlist of respected/notable small publishers that publish book-length fiction, any genre. I know there's a big index of publishers here, but there are quite a lot to parse. By respected/notable, I mean those that are long-established, well-awarded, or high-revenued.

    Point me in the right direction, please?

    Thank you.


    I've decided to make my own list. It's expected to serve as a semi-objective starting point, not a de facto list. Note that it's a best effort and may not be 100% correct.

    A - Well-Awarded
    R - High-Revenued
