Escalator Press is nearly three years old. Its first publication The Score by Adrienne Jansen set the tone for critically acclaimed, engaging stories on contemporary themes. Run Thomas Run, The Shark Party and A Line of Sight also take on hard hitting themes – refugees, domestic violence and an accidental shooting.
