On the 4th of July, Black Scat Books celebrated three years of publishing. In that short span of time we’ve released nearly 100 titles, which may make us seem bigger than we are. We’re still a small, independent press that barely scrapes by each month. Word of mouth is very important to us as that’s how most of our readers discover us, i.e., a friend whispers in their ear. We invite you to pass the good word along. And if you aren’t following this blog, please enter your email address on this page and subscribe— that way you’ll always know what’s waiting in the wings.
Remember, good lit happens here.
These hot new releases are ideal summer reading. Alain Arias-Misson‘s experimental novel COMIC BOOK subverts the comic book formula and turns it inside-out. Indeed, the sex & violence spins off the page and into your head—right where it belongs. Talk about fun!
THE DOUG SKINNER DOSSIER is a biblical picnic—complete with ants in your pants. This lavish (imitation leather) compendium is loaded with black humor, absurdism, and sheer nonsense—a delightful divertissement for the beach or hammock.
Come on, dive in and READ DIFFERENT!
Holy cow!—it’s the gospel according to Doug Skinner—featuring articles, short stories, verses, columns, literary essays, alphabets, metrical translations, monologues, talks, cartoons, rounds, lipogrammatic smut, a puppet show, a ventriloquism routine, and a one-act play!
THE DOUG SKINNER DOSSIER is destined to be in every motel room across the land. This divine illustrated edition features over 240 pages of wit, wisdom, and profundity. It fairly overflows with inspirational black humor and some rather dangerous (albeit gloomy) ideas that might not be suitable for nuclear family get-togethers. But — swear to god — it’s a hell of a good book!

“Arias-Misson’s writing is comedic and sharp, clever and intelligent.”—American Book Review
“Given the stature and history of this engigmatic, creative polymath, it is unlikely that he would turn out a straight-forward, commercially viable novel; he has spent several decades making innovations in art, poetry, performance and experimental fiction.” –Evergreen Review
like a superhero on steroids. On the surface it’s a simple Boy (“Company” operative) chases Girl (gorgeous Corporate Terrorist) story. Set “physically” in comic book format, it leaps relentlessly from one discontinuous window to the next, and becomes labyrinthic and baffling as the characters—discovering their comic book constraints—attempt to throw off these mental shackles and achieve their erotic ends.
Prepare to have your preconceived thought balloons punctured by this mind-blowing novel.
COMIC BOOK is a gas.
Trade Paperback: 170 pages
