Castor Astral/Escale des Lettres


In September 1998, at the heart of éditions Le Castor Astral (Paris-Bordeaux), Francis Dannemark and Jean-Yves Reuzeau founded the collection ‘Escales du Nord’, which became ‘Escales des lettres’ in spring 2006.

Since April 2008, the collection ‘Escales des lettres’ has grouped together contemporary literature at Castor Astral (with the exception of poetry and works dedicated to Oulipo). It offers novels, stories, news, some essays, documents and anthologies. ‘Escales des lettres’ publishes French-language writers (France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg), some of the best Dutch-speaking Belgian authors (in its ‘Bibliothèque flamande’) and authors of the Netherlands, Great Britain, Canada, Ireland, Italy…
