Nothing is as it seems.

Your reflection beckons you through the looking glass. Step through the cracks and travel paths where the darkness twists familiar shapes, where the once safe havens are overrun with danger, and the mundane objects of your life are forever changed.

Twenty authors share their view of the world through the shattered and splintered shards of their imaginations. Where does perception end and reality begin?

Raising money for The Glen Haven Area Volunteer Fire Department (GHAVFD).

Take a journey through Michael Carter’s boneyard by way of thirty-five bite-sized flash fictions. All with a speculative bent, the tales explore the magical and the real, outdoor life and the American West, delve into the psychology and horrors of crime, correction, and rehabilitation, and provide a glimpse of the end of the world as we know it. What else is waiting to be uncovered in the boneyard? There’s only one way to find out. Proceeds from corporate retail distributors (e.g., Amazon, B&N) will be donated to the Shriners Children’s Hospitals in Spokane, Washington, & Galveston, Texas, USA.

An anthology of 206-word horror stories/flash fiction showcasing some of the freshest horror writers out there today. There are 206 bones in the adult human skeleton. Our writers gave us 206-word stories, one word per bone. We, Bag of Bones Press, have selected and published 206 of these absolute beasts for your enjoyment.

All profit from the sale of this book in 2022 will be going to children’s charities in the UK.

Each precious thing I show you in this book is a holy relic from the night we both perished-the night when I combed you from my hair and watered the moon with your blood.

You’ve lost a lot of blood . . .

50% of proceeds will be donated to Trans Lifeline (@TransLifeline)

Rome may have fallen, but its greatest hero still fights.

Once a fearsome gladiator, Anton’s life changed upon receiving the kiss of a vampire. Now the enforcer of the supernatural world, Anton’s job is to protect the secret world hidden within our own. But not all monsters are willing to lay low—some passionately yearn for a return to the good old days when they fed openly and dominated humanity. These diehards will go to any lengths to achieve their goal, even if it means destroying Anton. But Anton guards a terrible ancient secret, and those foolish enough to challenge him soon discover there are things even monsters fear.

The Name of Fear Collection contains three stories featuring Anton’s exploits:

  • The Name of Fear
  • Blood Mania
  • Anton and the Cosmic Fury of the Old One

Apex Book Company (Apex Publications) seeks funding to publish a print compilation anthology of all the original genre short fiction published in our digital publication Apex Magazine during the 2021 calendar year.

A clockwork android named Kyra, completely assured of her place in the world, is becoming riddled in self-doubt and burdened with questions of her own identity.

Startling Stories is a revival of the classic science fiction magazine that originally ran from 1939 to 1955. The original Startling Stories was one of the core science fiction magazines that helped establish and  propagate the sci-fi genre in the mid 20th century, and the magazine’s new iteration intends to carry on that legacy by publishing the best and most daring, exciting, and innovative sci-fi stories, poetry, and art. The magazine has had a successful launch in 2021, but now we need your help to continue publishing into 2022. Despite the new magazine’s youth, our goal is to build Startling Stories quickly, increasing payment for our contributors and investing in even better cover art and various other improvements that would normally take years to implement. With your help, we can start building the new Startling Stories™ right away, carrying on the legacy of its namesake as a cornerstone of innovative science fiction.

Weird Little Worlds Press is pleased to announce it’s newest project, MOTHER: TALES OF LOVE AND TERROR, which will launch on Kickstarter April 8th, 2022. The new horror, dark fantasy, and science fiction anthology will include horror short stories from some today’s most accomplished horror writers alongside exciting new voices including Gemma Files, S.P. Miskowski, Shane Hawk, John Langan, Donyae Coles, Sarah Read, Steve Rasnic Tem, Christina Sng, Mercedes M. Yardley, and many others.

In these stories, mothers become heroes and villains and the concept of motherhood is examined and stretched to its ultimate limits across time, space, gender, location, and ideology. But in each, the reader will be forced to examine the depth and breadth of what motherhood is and what a mother will do for her offspring.

The anthology will be edited by Willow Dawn Becker and Christi Nogle for Weird Little Worlds Press, which published 2021’s Humans Are the Problem: a Monster’s Anthology and was included in the Horror Writer’s Association’s long list of recommended reading for the 2021 Bram Stoker Awards.

Happy reading.
