Hodder & Stoughton

One of the UK's oldest trade publishers


Hodder & Stoughton has a long heritage of publishing brilliant books by brilliant authors with exceptional flair and success.

Founded in 1868, Hodder & Stoughton’s earliest successes included books from GK Chesterton, Winston Churchill as well as The Bible. The 1920s brought an explosion of commercial fiction at keen prices, as Hodder’s “yellow jackets” series paved the way for the first paperbacks, and included bestsellers from the likes of John Buchan, Sapper and Edgar Wallace. The postwar years saw a succession of landmark non-fiction bestsellers including John Hunt’s The Ascent of Everest and Anthony Sampson’s Anatomy of Britain, and an expanded range of quality commercial fiction which included Mary Stewart, Elizabeth Goudge, James Clavell and John le Carré.  

This tradition of quality bestsellers continues today, as Hodder & Stoughton boasts a wide range of landmark publications both within its eponymous list, and under its varied imprints Sceptre, Hodder Faith, the newly relaunched Coronet and recently created Saltyard Books, Yellow Kite and Two Roads lists. Recent highlights include Sir Alex Ferguson's Leading, David Nicholls' Us, Stephen King's Bazaar of Bad Dreams, Joe Sugg's Username: Evie and David Mitchell's Slade House, along with numerous titles from internationally renowned authors and household names including Jodi Picoult, Graham Norton, Miranda Hart, James Bowen, Chris Cleave, Kirstie Allsopp, John Grisham, Seb Coe, Jessica Ennis, John Connolly, Sophie Hannah and Jasper Fforde.
