• Genre fiction for the modern reader

    Wraith - available for Amazon Kindle

    5th Black is a publisher of modern genre fiction. We believe that as our reading habits evolve and as digital reading becomes more deeply embedded fiction should evolve to embrace the way people actually read stories.

    Maybe this means publishing making chapters readable in the average commute time, or novels that are short enough to keep the pace sharp, but give the characters room to breathe without becoming padded and over-long. Either way, the fiction we produce is high quality, reasonably priced, and available from a range of online shops.
