those little pills, were my ambassadors to dreams ...’’

Fellow Travelers series extends the

pioneering work of Paris-based Olympia Press’s Traveller’s Companion

series of the 1950s and ‘60s, which published work that had been banned or

censored through moralistic prohibitions. Our series presents great new work

that has been effectively “censored” by the market. In our day, the market

is the definitive censor. The Fellow Travelers series proudly presents great

work that the market has not endorsed, but that we believe in.
