The community is the heart of Trapdoor Books. It is what differentiates us from the large, corporate sites. We encourage the free exchange of ideas and seek to involve our authors, readers, friends and staff in an immersive conversation about what moves us.

Whether you are interested in posting an occasional blog comment or are seeking to become a serious reader or full-time editor, we whole-heartedly welcome you to the community. Joining the community is simple and free – it takes less time than making a cup of coffee.
