RAW: Volume 1


edited by Ian Kirkpatrick

RAW: Vol 1 will be the first anthology of short stories put out by Steak House Books. The goal of this anthology is to have fun and hopefully will contain some RAW part of ourselves or of the human element -- whatever that means to you. This book is for fiction, specifically satire and/or speculative fiction. Speculative fiction covers a wide variety of genres from sci-fi to fantasy to magical realism, supernatural, paranormal -- pretty much if you can think of real life, but with minor or major fantastical elements, that fits our scope. Below are the submission guidelines:
