For a short time The Bench Press was a super-small publisher of fringe novels based in Melbourne, Australia. For a short time we distributed zines and small press around Victoria and NSW. Nowadays though the Bench Press is essentially just a blog for book reviews. I currently distribute two ebooks with the Bench Press label (the Unaustralians and pred.txt) but that's about it.

I have a general interest in small press novels, particularly Australian, and particuarly anything that might be considered radical, subversive, transgressive. Contact me if you have something you think should be reviewed here.
