Conker Editions is an independent publishing company, established in 2017 with the aim of producing high-quality books for the gift market. Conker specialises in books on football, memories and memorabilia, but there are already plans to publish books on different subjects by other authors, and customer publishing proposals in consideration.

Publishers Derek Hammond and Gary Silke are authors of the Daily Mirror-branded Got, Not Got – runner-up in the BSBA Football Book of the Year 2012 – and the following series of 20 books. Derek also works as a copywriter, while Gary is a designer and journalist. Both have long editorial experience, producing one of Britain’s first football fanzines and working for publishers including Haymarket Customer Magazines, Chrysalis, Dennis Publishing, Future and Pitch Publishing.

Conker books are available via the shop on this website, and will shortly be available via online retailers, specialist retailers (for goalkeepers, in the case of Glove Story) and selected bookshops.
