Conker Editions is an independent publishing company, established in 2017 with the aim of producing high-quality, beautifully designed books. Conker specialises in books on football, memories and memorabilia, but there are already plans to publish titles on wider pop culture, and contract publishing proposals under 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 is also a copywriter and editor, 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, online retailers, specialist retailers and all good bookshops. If you have any queries about buying, stocking, reviewing, commissioning, writing or contributing to Conker Editions, please contact us at
