40K is a digitally native imprint founded in 2010 and it is a sister company to Italian e-bookseller Bookrepublic. Our emancipation from paper allows us to publish and distribute ebooks in different languages - English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish - at their natural length.
Our novelettes are the result of a need that the print market cannot satisfy: ebooks create a new market for relatively short fiction. Find out a series of original works in English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish, both from new writers and established authors like Bruce Sterling, Mike Resnik, Cory Doctorow and Paul Di Filippo.View the Titles
Our essays, relatively short and strongly focused, are a solution for another functional limit of paper. With digital books you don’t need to fill hundreds of pages with the same concept, and you can better filter the information you give to your readers. It’s a matter of value: you can transmit a strong concept while requiring a lower investment in terms of reading time. Time is always valuable — in many cases, more valuable than the price. Efficiency = Reading Time / Knowledge Delivered.View the Titles
