Manuscript Press is a small press publisher started by Rick Norwood in 1976 and currently located in Mountain Home, Tennessee. It specializes in previously unpublished novels by science fiction authors such as Hal Clement and R. A. Lafferty and also reprints of comic strips as books.
Various daily and weekly newspaper comics such as Little Orphan Annie, Gasoline Alley, Flash Gordon, Prince Valiant, Modesty Blaise, Alley Oop, The Phantom, Buz Sawyer, and Tarzan are re-printed as compendiums.
Manuscript Press also publishes a magazine of comic strips, Comics Revue, the longest running small press comic book in America, with more than 300 issues to its credit. Between 1995 and 2000 Manuscript Press published 25 issues of Modesty Blaise Quarterly. In 2003 it published two books reprinting Modesty Blaise comic strips, Live Bait and Lady in the Dark, but did not print any further volumes after the British company, Titan Books, began publishing its own line of Modesty Blaise reprints.
Archipelago (Lost Manuscript Series) by R.A. Lafferty, is the previously unreleased first book of "The Devil is Dead" trilogy.
Prince Valiant -- an American Epic is the only reprint of Hal Foster's famous comic strip to reprint the strip the same size it appeared in newspapers in the 1930s. About Prince Valiant, Encyclopedia Britannica said "Beautifully drawn, the strip was an exciting re-creation of the period, rich with carefully researched details of armor, dwellings, and scenery".
