In a tantalizing array of new works from some of the most exciting Latinx creators working in the speculative vein today, Speculative Fiction for Dreamers extends the project begun with a previous anthology, Latinx Rising (The Ohio State University Press, 2020), to showcase a new generation of writers. Spanning diverse forms, settings, perspectives, and styles, but unified by their drive to imagine new Latinx futures, these stories address the breadth of contemporary Latinx experiences and identities while exuberantly embracing the genre’s ability to entertain and surprise. With new work for new audiences in their teens and up, and especially for Latinx people navigating their identities in the ever-shifting, sometimes perilous, but always promising cultural landscape of the US, this book is for dreamers—and DREAMers—everywhere.

In this playful, inventive collection, leading literary and horror writers spin chilling tales in only a few pages. Each slim, fast–moving story brings to life the kind of monsters readers love to fear, from brokenhearted vampires to Uber–taking serial killers and mind–reading witches. But what also makes Tiny Nightmares so bloodcurdling—and unforgettable—are the real–world horrors that writers such as Samantha Hunt, Brian Evenson, Jac Jemc, Stephen Graham Jones, Lilliam Rivera, Kevin Brockmeier, and Rion Amilcar Scott weave into their fictions, exploring how global warming, racism, social media addiction, and homelessness are just as frightening as, say, a vampire’s fangs sinking into your neck. Our advice? Read with the hall light on and the bedroom door open just a crack.
Featuring new stories from Samantha Hunt, Jac Jemc, Stephen Graham Jones, Rion Amilcar Scott, and more!
Some reviews of our first volume:
"This is an entertaining anthology of new sword and sorcery with a diverse range of unique tales."
"A varied collection of stories. Not to be overlooked. Available in paperback and e-book from Amazon. And be sure to keep an eye out for Volume Two out next year with more art by Jim Pitts. Recommended!"
"There is also a refreshing hint of the good old days in Swords & Sorceries: Tales of Heroic Fantasy spiced up with the approach of a new generation of fantasy writers."
"What an enjoyable book. Quality sword and sorcery stories and amazing art by Jim Pitts."
"Of all the anthologies put out featuring the works of contemporary S&S authors, I think this may be the best I’ve read to date."
Nobody can really say.
“Everybody was in a different War. Nobody's War is quite the same as anyone else's.”
These words were from a Vietnam Veteran counselor.
Truer words have never been spoken, so in this book we don't try to answer the question.
Instead we bring you thoughtful stories not only of War, but the people affected, and the aftermath.
In this book you'll find stories of alternative Wars as imagined by 26 authors of speculative fiction. Perhaps some of them will provide some insight into why we keep repeating what simply seems like a really bad idea.
Are you ready for a party you'll never forget?
When people think Monster Party, they tend to visualize a party with the big names like Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Wolf-Man just hanging around drinking, laughing, and scaring. While that does sound like a good time, the lesser known names are often shoved off to the side as if they're a bunch of basic bitches. But why is that?
We at Deadman's Tome though that the big names have partied long enough, it's time for the lesser known monsters like the Yeti, Mothsquio, and Leorilla to have some fun, and you're invited.
In the tradition of In the Field of Fire, a collection of stories with a Vietnam War theme, Deserts of Fire is a war-inspired anthology for the new millennium. For many, the recent wars in the deserts of Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East are just as slippery to grasp and difficult to understand as Vietnam was two generations earlier.
Inside, there are stories from a variety of bestselling and award-winning authors that start with the simple and modest ambition of making the reader feel strange about the recent past. Because when there are too many explanations, the truth won’t be found by merely choosing one side or the other. But rather, the truth is in the existence of the confusion itself.
“An intelligent read that is as mind-blowing as no-man’s land.” —Starburst

Up in the attic, a bedtime story outlives its storyteller.
A city boy visits his country cousins and stumbles on a terrifying family secret.
From a film set in the Arizona desert, to an overgrown rambling old house in the Florida swamps, to the dusty streets of a small Mexican town, the stories in this volume plunge the reader into the shadows of a world almost forgotten by modern fables of cold science and bright sunlight. They are the brushed over voices who call a warning to those who would comfort themselves in the thought that monsters aren’t real, and those things can’t happen here. Stories We Tell After Midnight Volume 2 offers up tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the horror that stalks you just beyond the glow of your cell phone light, but only to those who dare turn the page…

This, the third and final volume of the series, offers up more tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the false light of redemption—but only to those who once more dare turn the page.
