Two Dogs is an independent book imprint that focuses on producing entertaining and irreverent reading for South African men and women from ages 18 to 80. Started in 2006 in Cape Town, the imprint was initially tailored specifically for men, with the tagline “books men read”. We have since adapted our approach, maintaining a focus on male subject matter and tone, while appealing to female readers too – so we produce books on sex, cars, women, sport, current affairs and the like, and we keep them humorous, irreverent and as politically incorrect as possible.
Mercury books is Burnet Media’s new imprint. As with Two Dogs, Mercury will produce entertaining South African books from excellent local writers. However, whereas Two Dogs remains focused on irreverent, politically incorrect non-fiction, Mercury will have a wider ambit, including edgy, boundary-pushing fiction – such as its first title, Bitter Pill – and a less restricted variety of non-fiction.
