About us

Honford Star's mission is to publish the best literature from East Asia, be it classic or contemporary. We believe there are many important East Asian authors and books yet to be read by English-language readers, so we aim to make these works as accessible as possible. By working with talented translators and exciting local artists, we hope to see more bookshelves containing beautiful editions of the East Asian literature we love. 

Our first book was a collection of short stories by the famed Korean author, Kim Tongin. Despite the fact his work revolutionized modern Korean fiction, this was the first volume of his influential writings in English. Other Honford Star titles include the complete fiction of Lōa Hô, known as the "father of Taiwanese literature", Lee Hyo-seok's novel of an interracial marriage set in 1940s Korea, and the complete short fiction of Kang Kyeong-ae, a Korean revolutionary socialist during the Japanese occupation era.
