Revamped and revived, the 404 Ink Magazine showcases writing as diverse as the galaxy itself. Fiction, poetry, non-fiction, interviews & more combine to offer an eclectic collection of space-themed musings.

Take a seat at Stephen Hawking’s time-travelling soiree. Slip into the safe space between the bedsheets. Discover the cocktail designed to mark the end of the world.

Blending fiction with fact, we sit down with Brian Binnie, the first Scot in space, catch up with Round Table Books to discuss the importance of creating inclusive spaces in the book world, mourn the loss of NASA’s Opportunity rover, celebrate the world of Doctor Who, and learn first hand from the incomparable Adriana Ocampo how it feels to be a NASA legend. And that’s just for starters.

Including writing from: Alycia Pirmohamed, Annie Summerlee, Ashley Cline, Asmaa Jama, David G Devereux, Georgia Dodsworth, Helen McClory, Kathryn O’Driscoll, Lucy Jane Santos, Marcus O’Shea, Mark Fleming, Mark Gallie, Rhiannon Walsh, Rikki Santer, Sean Wai Keung, Stefan Mohamed, Stephen Watt, Stuart Kenny and Tom Pickles.
