It's time to turn the "man and his dog wandering through a dystopian world” trope on its head, and tell the stories about cats and their women - their badass women!
Cat Ladies of the Apocalypse wanders through broken worlds with stories of survival, technology, magic, and sheer determination. But – like their cats – the authors frequently slipped out the upstairs window or knocked things off of countertops, and their stories are stronger for it.
In these pages, cats help their women find a better life, protect and defend and fight for the women who have sheltered and protected them – and vice-versa. Because these are not only stories about surviving troubled times, but of the relationships between the women and their cats, between the members of communities both small and large, and how they thrive, even in the face of catastrophic loss.
Cat Ladies of the Apocalypse – it’s time to take them seriously!

Whether you’re traditional, indie, or hybrid; a journalist, novelist, or blogger, we hope their stories provide encouragement for you, wherever you are in your journey toward publication.
These eleven authors looked beyond the traditional wind-rattled Victorian mansions and stately plantation houses shrouded in moss to introduce us to contemporary Gothic locations hiding in plain sight. In LOVE AMONG THE THORNS, the fog and forests of the Pacific Northwest cloud your vision, before blowing away to reveal the wind-swept plains of Montana. The damp of the Louisiana bayou gives way to the glittering lights of Manhattan. Across the ocean, secrets lie behind the walls of grand estates in the forests of Germany and the windy crags of Scotland, and danger lurks beneath the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean. In each locale, the sense of things not being quite right, not quite what they seem on the surface beckons you forward.
Whatever the setting or obstacles placed before the lovers, the stories in LOVE AMONG THE THORNS focus on the relationships that develop between the characters, bringing them from strangers – or even antagonists – to the point where they leave the story hand-in-hand, with futures possible only because of the hardships they had to overcome to achieve them.

In these pages, you’ll meet witches who are open about their magic and others who keep their power a closely-guarded secret. They find lost pets and lost people, break curses and hexes, and cast more than a few spells of their own.
WITCHES OF A CERTAIN AGE presents thirteen female magic-users in their prime - women who have power and both the experience and the wisdom to wield it.
Contains stories by L.D.B. Taylor, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Donea Lee Weaver, Kat Farrow, Meghan O'Hara Murray, Claire Davon, Eva Papier, Elizabeth Hosang, Charlotte Henley Babb, Wayland Smith, Jena Rey, Jenise Aminoff, and Liz Pierce. Edited by Lyn Worthen
We didn’t have one hundred monkeys - but we did have the membership of a League of Utah Writers chapter that calls itself “The Infinite Monkeys.” Most of them didn’t have typewriters, but worked on laptop or desktop computers, smartphones, and tablets. And instead of one hundred years to perfect their prose, we gave them one year to get from blank page to published anthology. So while you won’t find any reproductions of Shakespeare here, what you will find are thirty-five short stories that will make you laugh, make you cry, make you think, and sometimes make you glad you don’t live in the unsettling worlds of the imagination.
