1.-At Heptaseven Editores we don’t like official posts or writers that prowl about the watering holes of power. Although if any of them are capable of recovering their dignity and return to graze at their leisure, we will be delighted to let them join us.
2.- The team at Heptaseven Editores enjoy being close to the sea -the sea is
nothing more than the release for the great rivers- because we believe in the Mediterranean as a concept of beauty, harmony and sensitivity and that is how we wish our publications to be.
3.- At Heptaseven Editores we still believe that a book is a weapon. Although as pacifists, we will resign ourselves to an occasional kick in the shins or the odd irritating fly.
4.- Heptaseven Editores does not believe in prizes, tributes or decorations. We agree that a piece of work should be carried out to the high standards of an artisan. Both Nobel prize winners and new writers are of interest to us, those who write with little experience and those who are enlightened.
5.- At Heptaseven Editores we think that the perfect language is silence. Therefore for us, languages are mere instruments without political, social or cultural connotations. However, for practical reasons we will limit ourselves to the four languages in which you can read these texts. We will go where quality takes us.
6.- At Heptaseven Editores we believe that literature is too serious to allow politicians to interfere with it. The greatest contribution to literature and to culture in general that public institutions can make would be their lack of interference.
7.- At Heptaseven Editores, the majority of our valued publishing colleagues seem to us to be dealers of live stock, their literary agents coarse spectators and as for the literary critics, as they are still living with the same opinions regarding Ulysses that Joyce diagnosed them with ... one shouldn’t take much notice of them.
