Among our authors you can find such literary icons as Graham Greene, J. G. Ballard, Michael Chabon, Kazuo Ishiguro, Nobel Prize Winners José Saramago and Kenzaburó Óe; Czech writers published by Plus include such illustrious as examples Josef Škvorecký, Jan Novák, Petr Placák, Jaroslav Žák, Václav Vokolek and Ondřej Neff, et al.
We also publish non-fiction. The essay series Speculum has included pieces by Martin Hilský, Josef Jedlička and Terry Eagleton; essays by Zdeňěk Vašíček, Sylvie Richterová, T. S. Eliot and Leslie Fiedler are forthcoming. Plus also puts out the historical travel guides Prague Through Famous Figures (so far we have printed volumes dedicated to Franz Kafka and W. A. Mozart; guides for Hrabal and Hašek will be published soon). Notable individual works include Big Beat by Vojtěch Lindaur and Ondřej Konrád and Fateful Moments for Czechoslovakia by Karel Pacner.
