At Scratch Books, we are dedicated to the art of short stories. 

Our first books -  the Reverse Engineering series - bring together the best modern short stories with a discussion by each writer on their instincts, processes and ideas behind it. 

In June 2024, we will publish The Unreliable Nature Writer by Claire Carroll and, in October, Duets by Eley Williams, Nell Stevens, Jon McGregor, Gurnaik Johal and many others!

Read our weekly online Scratch Classics series to find out modern writers' favourite classic tales.
