History

Sceptre is the literary imprint of Hodder & Stoughton, publishing fiction and non-fiction from around the globe. Our aim is to pick books that are not only entertaining and absorbing but also thought-provoking, surprising and superbly written – the kind of books that cast fresh light on the human experience and are not easily forgotten.

Our authors have won prizes from the Booker to the Prix Goncourt and cover an eclectic range of themes and subjects from the dismantling of a Parisian cemetery to cloud-spotting. They include long-established writers such as Thomas Keneally and Melvyn Bragg, those whom we've launched like David Mitchell, Andrew Miller, Siri Hustvedt, Charles Frazier, Jake Arnott, Jill Dawson, Natasha Solomons, Emma Henderson, Glen David Gold and Gavin Pretor-Pinney, and those who've joined us – Chris Cleave, Giles Milton, Bahaa Taher, Clare Morrall, Andrew Cowan, Alexei Sayle, Peter Ho Davies, Jenn Ashworth, Tristam Gooley and many more.

Though the list is small, we delight in finding outstanding new voices we can introduce to literature lovers: recent debutants include Ned Beauman, Ros Barber, Miroslav Penkov, Jess Richards, Nick Papadimitriou and Kevin Powers.
