US publisher based in Westport, Connecticut. Hyperion Press's relevance to sf is through its photographically reproduced reprint series, Classics of Science Fiction; Hyperion was the first publisher to undertake such a series, preceding Arno Press, Garland and Gregg Press. The series editor was Sam Moskowitz, who also provided introductions to many of the volumes; the books selected were primarily drawn from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The first series, published 1974, had 23 volumes; the second, published 1976, had 19 volumes. Hyperion Press also brought back into print six anthologies and collections of criticism by Moskowitz.
