About Us

Who we are, we—Dr Lily Wilmes and Dr Peter Maria Schuster, both of whom are physicists—have run a small self-owned enterprise founded in 1988, when in 2003, we decided to set ourselves up as independent book publishers, though operating on a modest scale: the Living Edition.

Living Edition Publishers devote to the focal points of their personal concern:

to Science and to Poetry.

Motivated by the leading example of a number of great authors and self-editors in English-language territory, like T.S. Eliot, Robert Graves, Ted Hughes, we are not timid about editing our own works.

We embarked on editing the works by Peter Maria Schuster, which meet well our two main topics of interest. He is a poet, an author and a physicist as well, and we have been making a considerable success of his books.

Peter Maria Schuster is President of the History of Physics (HoP) Group of the European Physical Society (EPS) and Chair of the HoP Section of the Austrian Physical Society (OePG): www.petermschuster.at.
