Hamilcar Publications is the book publishing division of Hannibal Boxing.
We are a Boston-based publisher focused on the world of professional boxing. Hamilcar’s titles showcase the work of the finest boxing writers in the world, offering compelling subjects that appeal to fans of the ‘sweet science’ as well as to readers who are passionate about great nonfiction storytelling, regardless of genre. Subjects range from Muhammad Ali’s “hype man” Drew “Bundini” Brown to the flamboyant Puerto-Rican-American legend, Hector “Macho” Camacho, to an examination of the issue of boxing and CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), formerly known as “Punch-Drunk Syndrome.”
The principals of Hamilcar Publications, and Hannibal Boxing Media, are Kyle Sarofeen and Andy Komack.
Kyle Sarofeen, Publisher
Kyle has worked in the book publishing industry in the Boston area for over twenty years for companies such as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Quarto, and Pearson. His background is mainly in interior production and book manufacturing. At Houghton Mifflin Harcourt he was the lead buyer for the Curious George series, and at Quarto he was in charge of manufacturing for two imprints. He also did a stint in Pearson’s marketing department. Other highlights include being selected as a jury member for the New England Book Show, and doing an editorial internship with the prestigious boutique publisher Shambhala Publications, which is where his career started. His passion for boxing started when he watched Marvin Hagler fights as a teenager growing up in Massachusetts in the eighties. In addition to his experience in the book business, he has an MBA from the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
