I am publishing monthly fiction by both new and established authors, chosen from anonymous slushpile so that only the quality of the story is a factor.  No authors are solicited just for their marketing draw, their stories have to stand for themselves.

I would love to make this an ongoing publication.  I would love to publish more stories and/or longer stories.  I would love to expand to other formats, especially to podcast fiction.  I am a voracious consumer of podcast fiction--you can share my enjoyment with the Best Of podcast lists I have posted to the site since 2009 on Diabolical Plots.
