Book of the Month


Republic of Consciousness Book of the Month

A new small press book delivered to your door every month. In association with 3:AM Magazine.

$16 (£12.50) a month (or $20/$24 (£14.50/18.50) for EU/international subscribers), and we’ll send you a monthly small press book – all the proceeds will go towards our prize-pot, i.e. to the shortlisted & winning small presses. They will be newly published, or even sometimes slightly ahead of publication. We will list the next three month’s titles below, so you don’t pre-order them yourself. 

You’ll be charged at the beginning of the month, and the books will be sent out towards the end of each month.

november 2019: sloot by ian macpherson (bluemoose books)

from the publisher: A post-postmodern crime novel set on the clean streets of Dublin's leafiest suburb, Sloot has at its heart an accidental detective who'd rather write his own Celtic-screwball-noir than solve the crime, and a narrator who loses the plot. Literally. Sound complicated? Not so. Thanks to a revolutionary structure, The Inquisitive Bullet, it's simplicity itself. Detours include proof that psychoanalysis is the oldest profession, validation of the dictum 'For what is comedy but tragedy with loose trousers', and a brief aside on the possibility of an Irishman having multiple birth mothers. While the plot bullet speeds, inquisitively, towards its target - the final full stop.
