A Strange Object Is Born


Callie Collins and Jill Meyers, formerly of American Short Fiction, are starting a new project together:

“A Strange Object is an independent press based in Austin, Texas, dedicated to publishing surprising, heartbreaking fiction in strange packages. We’re talking about fiction that haunts and inspires us—big work that engulfs, that takes risks, that bucks form, that builds a warm dwelling in dark places.”

Keep your eye on this one. It’s going to be interesting and weird and beautiful.
