Who we are

Our team


Stefan Tobler 2016

Publisher Stefan Tobler founded And Other Stories out of frustration at the great books not being published in English. With English and Swiss parents, he was born in the Amazon. After his first degree, he moved to Dresden for some years. He later did an MA and PhD at UEA, Norwich. He translates from Portuguese and German. His translations include the 2015 Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize shortlisted Água Viva by Clarice Lispector, the 2016 Man Booker International Prize longlisted A Cup of Rage by Raduan Nassar (Penguin Modern Classics), the poetry collection Silence River by Antônio Moura (Arc), Rodrigo de Souza Leão’s All Dogs are Blue and Arno Geiger’s The Old King in His Exile. He reads French and Spanish too and subsidises literary publishing with his fashion brand & Other Stories. He’s also on Twitter @stefantobler.


nicky green

Nicky Smalley handles our publicity, marketing and sales in the UK. She’s also a translator and lover of Swedish and Norwegian literature, and an escaped academic – in 2014 she finished her PhD in Scandinavian Studies at UCL with a thesis rather nattily titled ‘Contemporary Urban Vernaculars in Rap, Literature and in Translation, in Sweden and the UK’. Her translations include Jogo Bonito by Henrik Brandão Jönsson, a Swedish book about Brazilian football (Yellow Jersey Press), and How to Fall in Love with a Man Who Lives in a Bush by Emmy Abrahamson (Borough Press). She’s lived in Berlin, Stockholm and Rio, but London is her home. You can find her (very occasionally) on Twitter @tallnicky.


Tara Tobler

Editor Tara Tobler comes to And Other Stories from Biblioasis, where she served as Marketing and Publicity Director from 2013-14, and as Publishing and Editorial Assistant from 2011-13. Prior to this she studied English literature (M.A., McGill University, specialising in book history and small press publishing; PhD, University of Western Ontario, specialising in Renaissance poetry) and she is currently involved in independent theatre.

A freelance writer, reviewer, and journalist, Tara was the recipient of the 2014 Windsor Endowment for the Arts Emerging Artist Award for Literature. You can find her on twitter @taraktobler.


Saba Ahmed

Saba Ahmed is the Editorial Production Manager at And Other Stories. She has a BA in English from Oxford, where she fell in love with a course on life-writing supervised by Hermione Lee, and an MA in Comparative Literature from Goldsmiths, where she cherished the freedom to read across languages.

Previously, she has worked for Asymptote (the online literary journal spotlighting world literature in translation), Pan Macmillan, and Jo Unwin in association with Rogers, Coleridge & White. She also edits for Tilted Axis Press, part of the wonderful Northern Fiction Alliance. You can find her on Twitter @saba_a_ahmed.
