Black Scat Books is the only concern of its kind in America. It was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2012.


We are a small, independent, not-for-profit press dedicated to publishing sublime art & literature—absurdist fiction, Dada, surrealism, ‘pataphysics, and works in translation. Our books are designed to disrupt, disorient, and smash boundaries—academic, cultural, literary, and philosophical.


Black Scat trade paperbacks are available in North America and Europe via Amazon.


We publish an international journal,  Le Scat Noir. — where art and literature hit the fan.


Under our New Urge imprint we publish innovative works of erotic fiction.


We appreciate your support.
