Infinity's Jukebox: Stories by Matthew Burnside

Infinity's Jukebox
Stories by Matthew Burnside

A two-headed, eight-eyed monster of a book that moves in all directions, building hearts out of Legos and dreams out of mere existence. The possibilities and feelings and imagination in these stories are as endless as infinity itself, as fulfilling as a fistful of quarters in the jukebox of a lifetime.

Whatever Don't Drown Will Always Rise: Stories by Justin Lawrence Daugherty

Whatever Don't Drown Will Always Rise
Stories by Justin Lawrence Daugherty

Ten stories of myths and the roads that sprawl out from them. These are not the stories of Greek and Roman gods, but of the daily hurts and hopes people cling to in lieu of a simple other, the apparitions and rumors of science and tradition that can give or take away.

Coming soon.

Send in your manuscripts. (Picture unrelated.)

The only details I've got so far are still mostly top secret.

Do you want to be a top secret? Sure you do. Check the guidelines page and send me a manuscript.

We're So Real That A 90's R&B Singer Should Sing About Us As If We Are His Love

Look at that. It's a printer. It's my printer, the one I'm going to make these books on. I haven't hooked it up yet because I didn't order any paper and I know I'll just end up printing random shit off on a bunch of receipts I taped together.

I've solicited a few manuscripts and received several unsolicited (yet completely welcome) manuscripts as well through this website. I'd like to release two or three books at once for the first official release and then run a deal on buying all three (or both, if there is no third). It's looking like this can happen, but there's always the future, and that's why you all need to send me some work.

Check the submission guidelines and then check your work and then check with your mother or legal guardian and then check with me. We'll talk. It'll probably be one of the least worst things you ever do.

So just do it already.
