Woodencloak is a UK-based independent publisher intent on bringing you gripping stories, unforgettable characters and a respite from reality. Our range of titles will cover everything from picture books to Nordic Noir, from beach reads to mind-bending mysteries. Expect detectives and spies, pirates and picaros, ghosts and ghouls. Expect everyday heroes and heroines, young and old, but most of all, expect plots!

Woodencloak is a project initiated by three friends – book enthusiasts with a background in academia, translation and various stages of publishing who share a particular affinity for Scandinavian literature. This is reflected in our name, which comes from a Norwegian fairy tale.
