Blue Lizard Books provides an outlet, primarily in ebook form, for author and humorist Steve Ashton.

Steve Ashton wrote several books on climbing and related activities during the 1980s and 90s, at which time he was also humour columnist for High magazine and adventure sports writer for Country Living. Several books from that period are still in print, published by Cicerone. Blue Lizard Books will republish out-of-print but still sought-after titles such as 100 Classic Climbs on Gritstone and 100 Classic Climbs in North Wales as ebooks.

New humour books are also planned, including the Diddly Squat series of spoof encyclopedias. The first of these – Diddly Squat’s Encyclopedia of Mountaineering – is out now, while others on subjects of wider appeal are in various stages of development.
