About Bazillion Points

America’s “smallest but heaviest publisher,” Bazillion Points delivers books from many netherworlds to a rabid, overlooked readership of voracious bookwurms. We are independently independent, opening the gateways to a bazillion points of interest.

Bazillion Points was founded in Brooklyn, NY, in 2007 by Ian Christe, author of Sound of the Beast: The Complete Headbanging History of Heavy Metal (HarperCollins, 2003) and Everybody Wants Some: The Van Halen Saga (John Wiley & Sons, 2007).

“Any book about a metal band endorsed by Ian Christe, author of the preeminent book on metal, Sound of the Beast, is worth considering.”—Library Journal

“Bazillion Points releases first-class books, in high-quality formats, and although the publisher is only five years old, and the number of its releases hovers around 15, what is extraordinary is that seven of those books happen to be among the finest books published about metal or punk…”—PopMatters

“Bazillion Points might just be the best publishing house in America…the New York-based publishers have an outstanding record for producing quality books for rock and metal fans.”—Metal Hammer UK

“Whether your taste is ghoulishly raw Swedish death metal, egg-headed prog metal or the racial politics of the scene, the Greenpoint-based Bazillion Points has you covered.”—Time Out New York

    Today I found in my mailbox “Mean Deviation” waiting for me. I am just writing to inform you that the book arrived and it was nicely packed in excellent condition. VERY fast delivery too, probably it is the first time I order anything overseas and arrive in 5 days, usually they take more than two weeks.
    Thank you very much !

    Best Regards,
