451 Editions provides a forum for writers to publish new editions of their work, or to publish select new work, availing of both traditional and digital methods. In this way, the books may always be available to the broadest readership possible.
The name originates with one of the greatest books about books: Fahrenheit 451, and takes inspiration from Ray Bradbury’s seminal characters seeking to safeguard the printed volume and make books available, whatever their format.
Our launch in 2016 is slowly gaining momentum and 2017 was an exciting year, with Mary O’Donnell’s The Light Makers published in July and Friends with the Enemy, a memoir by Val Mulkerns, launched on 13 December in time for Christmas 2017. Sadly, in Spring 2018 Val Mulkerns passed away, but her memoirs are now available in bookshops around Ireland. In late Spring, look out for second editions of Martin Malone’s After Kafra and Ferdia MacAnna’s Cartoon City. Our Autumn titles will be announced at the end of June.
