WE HAVE MOVED. Our response times will be slow. DO NOT use any California addresses; the P.O. Box is closed. DO NOT ship us snail mail until our new Colorado address is public. If you were slated for a spring/summer 2016 publication, it has shifted to fall/winter 2016/2017, but we will resume publications in order in September.

NEW RELEASE! The Girl Wakes by Carmen Lau Now Available!

Dark, strange, lyrical, and full of frustrated desire and whimsy, CARMEN LAU’s debut collection of stories paints a vivid picture of femininity in the clutches of fantasy, reflecting the brutality of growing up a girl and challenging readers to rethink fairy tales as they’ve always known them. Within, you’ll find a tender heart, a painful core, and a paradoxically disastrous and beautiful coming-of-age of every and any girl, told through fairy tales that mirror real life and are at once contemporary and timeless. Joining the ranks of Angela Carter, Kate Bernheimer, and Allyse Near, Lau weaves tales of a girl who is too fantastical to be real and too real to be fantasy.
