Monstrous Ink


After Heroine Chic, a celebration of the heroine’s place at the heart of science fiction, fantasy and reality, James Webster is back with Monstrous Ink, a collection of 52 very short stories that delve into what it means to be a monster and the power of reclaiming what (we fear) is monstrous inside ourselves.

“I saw a fury on the street today.”

Talons and teeth. Lairs and labyrinths. Those beasts we fear and those we secretly admire. These are stories about monsters.

Featuring 52 very short stories, Monstrous Ink is a deep-dive into the murky waters of monster-dom from which so many of our most beloved sci-fi and fantasy stories came.

Told with sharp insight, spiky humour, and spine-tingling atmosphere, these tales explore what it means to be a monster and the power of reclaiming what (we fear) is monstrous inside ourselves.


James is an inveterate scribbler of poetry and prose who can most reliably be found writing weird little stories online, on a stage somewhere, doing something that can only be described as ‘proclaiming’.

As a poet, he’s won multiple slams, performed up and down the UK (mainly down) and written two full-length spoken word theatre shows (50 Shades of Webster and Poor Life Choices) that he’s performed at various festivals and even one sci-fi convention.
