Welcome to Stevens & Marlin Publishing

We aim to produce ebooks that offer good reading with coffee, on the beach or in a foxhole. Some of us love coffee, some love the beach and none of us was happy in a foxhole. If our books give you some delight when you are doing what you love, and some relief when you are not, then we have done our job.
