The fashion industry is the kookiest contender in the futurist camp, but it belongs there. From the thousand-yard stare of runway models to the lament of “that’s so last season,” the discourse is always intent upon the horizon.

Two of our ebook releases—our latest, Mr. Stranger’s Sealed Packet, and our premiere, A Plunge into Space, took us to Mars long before we had any idea of what it looked like.

If you're on the East Coast, you know it looks like it's going to rain all through Memorial Day weekend. If you're somewhere else, it's...probably still going to rain, because such is the ineffable humor of the universe. But fear not! We have you covered.

A lot has happened in the few weeks since our last release, not the least of which was the opening of our physical bookshop at 18 Bridge St., Brooklyn, NY.
