Back in 2006, MCM wrote a little book called “The Pig and the Box”, mostly for kicks. The story, about a pig with a magic box (and the evils of digital rights management) was featured on sites such as Boing Boing, and quickly surpassed 2 million downloads before making it into print.
From there, the company started to grow. First, it published a dozen titles a year, to great success. But then MCM got tired of writing a book a month, so 1889 Labs expanded its horizons by publishing the works of other authors as well. Today, it boasts a growing roster of “Lab Rats” and a catalogue of titles that illustrate just how amazing web fiction can be.
