This short story anthology showcases genre authors whose work crosses genre boundaries and twists the tropes. Every story in this volume offers readers a chance to discover authors whose writing can’t be easily classified or labeled, but is both entertaining and literary. We received hundreds of fascinating submissions. From twisted takes on classic fairytales to horror/fantasy/science fiction mash-ups, we have been astounded by the depths of creativity we have discovered in these stories. We have seen combinations of genres, subversions of tropes, and just plain wacky ideas that made us think, There's no way this could work—only to grow more entranced by those stories with every sentence. More than anything, this wide range of submissions has proven to us that unconventional stories do have a home, and a community that loves reading them. As we complete our selection process, we want to say that it has been thrilling to have the opportunity to read so many unusual and well-written tales.
