A small press specializing in science fiction and fantasy. It was founded by Lloyd Arthur Eshbach in 1946 in Reading, Pennsylvania, and was one of the pioneer sf small presses. It closed in 1958 and sold its remaining stock to Donald M. Grant.

Polaris Press, an imprint of Fantasy Press, was used to publish two books that didn't fit the Fantasy Press line: The Heads of Cerberus by Francis Stevens (1952) and The Abyss of Wonders by Perley Poore Sheehan (1953).
