You like Jeff Goldblum. We like Jeff Goldblum. Helen McClory really likes Jeff Goldblum. And we’re excited to tell you: so does Penguin Books!

We’ve sold the rights to our favourite fictional Goldblum goodness, The Goldblum Variations, to Penguin Books US who will publish the book featuring some brand new stories in North America, having acquired World rights (excl. UK). If you thought you’d seen everything of Jeff’s universal travels, think again. We’ll also be republishing the new version of the book in the UK to tie in with release later in the year.  

On the news, Helen says, “I'm delighted that Penguin has chosen to pick up The Goldblum Variations and can't wait to share the Gospel of Goldblum absurdism with a new audience.”


“We at Penguin Books are so excited to be collaborating with 404 Ink and Helen McClory on bringing The Goldblum Variations to North America and beyond,” says Shannon Kelly, Assistant Editor at Penguin. “In addition to being hilarious, Helen is an incredible literary talent, and I feel fortunate that in this vast multiverse I live in a timeline that contains both her wonderful writing and the sensation that is Jeff Goldblum.”

It also means that when our version of The Goldblum Variations is gone, it’s gone, and we’re in the last batch of the print run, so don’t miss out on this version. HOW EXCITING!
