The Society of Misfit Stories Presents...
What is The Society of Misfit Stories? These are stories often trapped in the forsaken shadowlands of the publishing industry: too long for traditional magazines and journals, but too short for print. Launched in 2016, The Society of Misfit Stories provides a loving home for longer short fiction. Each entry in the series is a stand-alone tale from talented new and established voices in a wide range of genres. The Society of Misfit Stories Presents...Volume One is available in digital, paperback, and hardcover formats and features the stories first published in 2016. Volume Two will be available in late 2018 and will feature all of the Misfits published in 2017.
