404 Ink is the award-winning, independent publisher of powerful fiction and social issue-driven non-fiction, based in Edinburgh.
With co-founders described as ‘the “nasty women” shaking up the book industry’ (Huck magazine), 404 publishes diversely and loudly, showcasing the likes of Chris McQueer, Nadine Aisha Jassat, Elle Nash & more.
With intolerance and inequality increasingly normalised by the day, it's vital for women to share their experiences. Nasty Women is a collection of essays, interviews and accounts on what it is to be a woman in the 21st century. Keep telling your stories.
From the streets of working class Scotland, and on occasion, a little beyond our solar system, comes one of the country's most hilarious debut writers. Putting surreal and witty twists on the everyday, Chris McQueer creates recognisable characters you will love and want to avoid like the plague.
Mayhem & Death is the matured, darker companion to On the Edges of Vision and shows McClory's ever expanding ability to envelop and entrance her readers with lyrical language of lore, stunning settings and curious characters.
A young woman embarks on a fraught three-way relationship and begins to recognise the dark undertow of obsession and jealousy that her presence has created between Matt and Frances, and finds herself balancing on a knife's edge between pain and pleasure, the promise of the future and the crushing isolation of the present.
The Goldblum Variations is a collection of flash fiction, stories and games on the one and only Jeff Goldblum as he, and alternate versions of himself, travels through the known (and unknown) universe in a mighty celebration of weird and wonderful Goldbluminess.
