About Mythos & Ink

Who we are. What we do. And, most importantly, our favourite mythological creatures.

Stories for geeks, by geeks.

Mythos & Ink is an independent press with a passion for great stories and the community built around them.

In addition to publishing science fiction, fantasy, and geeky nonfiction, we make spaces for writers to learn, grow, and become great authors through informative blog posts, writing resources, and a Discord community.

We work closely with our authors throughout the editing, publishing, publicity, and marketing processes to ensure everyone involved is passionate about the books we make. Check out our books!

Mythos & Ink is an independent publisher. We differ from traditional publishers in that we don’t give authors advances, we offer higher royalty rates than most large publishers, we work closely with our writers, and we only publish a few select books per year. We are not a vanity or subsidy press (i.e. we don’t charge fees to publish your book). If you would like us to consider your manuscript for publication, send us a query.
