Welcome to Rat's Tales.




We are an artisan publishing house based in Bath, UK, with a passion for producing beautiful and engaging content across various creative mediums.

Rat’s Tales has a dedicated team with a clear vision of what makes a exceptional product (be it a book, magazine, or something else). However, this is not all we do. We are also working on an anti-drink-spiking campaign, with the aim to reduce the spiking epidemic in our city and beyond. Our purpose is not only to entertain, but to have a positive impact on the world.

You may not agree that this is what a publishing house should be doing, but perhaps we are not a publishing house, instead, something new.

When you reach the top, the only way is...

down in Port Antonio, Jamaica, where the A-list gather in their yachts, Si sips his drink and gazes into the eyes of one of the most beautiful women in the world. And she gazes back.

On the starlight waters of the bay, an oar splashes in the darkness and a tendril of marijuana smoke drifts in. In the bar, the rich and the famous make money and love, of a kind.

Only someone like Si would sense that there is danger in the night. Only someone like Si would know what to do about it – if he can take his eyes of Lara for long enough.

Out now...





Our Projects


Simon Ellice Series

Written with wry understated British humour; sexy in all the right ways, with a brutal, neo-noir atmosphere that clings to you long after reading. The author is unafraid to play the writers’ writer at times, but the teasing tempo and laissez-faire attitude to our expectations allow a more casual reader to enjoy on a commute, at a beach bar or however they please.


More Books

Deviation Street

They say, you should never go back. We did. Originally founded in 1977 as a punk fanzine and highly sought after. We have reincarnated it with the help of one of the original members, Bri Nylon of The M.P.s., it is now a fully blown, but still lovable lo-fi, art and music magazine.

social action

Ion's Dove

With the number of people who have experienced drink spiking and the serious dangers that come with being spiked, we think it’s important not just to raise awareness, but to give people a functional way to test their drinks for drugs. We offer a discreet drug-testing kit that is small enough to fit in a phone case or wallet, so that people can drink safely.
