ISF Publishing specialises in representing the published writing of the 20th Century Sufi scholar and thinker, Idries Shah.

Starting in 2014, we began relaunching Shah’s full corpus of written work, both in printed and audiobook form and for the first time as eBooks.

And, for the first time, we will publish separate editions with British and with American spelling and punctuation. Further editions will follow, including scholars’ editions and limited editions.

Please consult the publishing calendar to check when each new edition will become available.

Please click on the cover image of each book to for more information on each title, including purchase links and reading the book online.
