About Mythos & Ink

Mythos & Ink is a small press with a passion for great stories and the community built around them. We not only publish science fiction, fantasy, and related nonfiction projects, but make a space for writers to learn, grow, and become great authors through informative blog posts, writing resources for our patrons, and a Discord community.



The word "mythos" is greek for "story," but it also represents an ancient understanding of mythology that shapes our beliefs and reflects truth. Mythos understands mystery; Mythos is the language one resorts to when words don't seem to capture the fullness of reality.

The word "ink," in addition to referring to the literal ink on the printed page, is inspired by the other half of the word "mythology," which comes from the word "logos," meaning "word" or "reason." Logos understands logic and science; it's skeptical of everything until there is sufficient data to change its mind.

We see these two concepts as long-lost dance partners that can work together to create meaningful stories—science and faith, logic and myth, working together to create something magical. These are the types of stories we seek to publish.



We're passionate about other worlds—tales of the impossible, broken, and lovely—told by unique voices. For fiction, we publish science fiction and fantasy that feature relatable characters and astounding settings, and we are especially interested in characters who represent minorities and disabilities. Our non-fiction projects include some tie-in to science fiction, fantasy, or mythology, and we are also interested in engaging geek culture with religion and Christian faith.



Patreon allows us to focus on community-building in addition to publishing great books. Your patronage allows us to mentor writers and create a space for readers to discuss the stories they love. Our tiers are geared towards readers, writers, and people who want to support an independent press.



All patrons receive exclusive, monthly content, as well as special roles in our Discord community—a place for readers to discuss SFF books and writers to learn and grow in the craft. If you already have a Discord account, you should automatically join our server upon becoming a patron. If you don't have one and want to learn more, we've set up a tutorial video for you on what Discord is and how to use it! Here is the link to join our server to share and if you are not a patron (It's free for everyone! Patrons just get a few extra bonuses).
