Can I send my astronomy manuscrpt to Ken Press?
Please do not send unsolicited manuscripts to Ken Press. We are not a publishing company at large. Most of the books that we publish are from our own solications. However, if you have an astronomy publication that you would like to publish and wish to speak with us, please call us at 520-743-3200 or email us at We will return calls and emails. We are picky about what we publish, but we will be willing to talk with you about the publishing process and offer you suggestions.

Who or What is Ken?
One question that we often get is, “Who is Ken?” The word Ken means to “see” or “view.” So, Ken, coupled with the eye logo, signifies products that are used to see or view something. Although this definintion of Ken is from an older Irish use of the word, it was specifically chosen for its subtlety and difference, distinguishing Ken from other publishers. Now, the owner of Ken Press is Ken Graun and his first name might have heavily influenced his decision to use Ken in the company’s name.
