a series of erratically published chapbooks


About the Press

Guillotine is an erratically published chapbook series focused on speculative fictions and radical nonfictions. We support and publish work that’s explicitly queer, feminist, anti-racist, anti-colonial. Punks and weirdos, setting shit on fire and rioting in the streets, all that good stuff.
