Everywhere Stories: Short Fiction from a Small Planet
Call for submissions!
In the 21st Century, knowledge of the world around us grows increasingly important, and fiction set in other countries has become extremely popular. Everywhere Stories: Short Fiction from a Small Planet (Edited by Clifford Garstang, to be published by Press 53 in Fall 2014) is an anthology (and potential series) of short fiction (short stories of any length, short shorts, and flash) set around the globe, including the United States.
The anthology will consist of 20-25 fictions, with no more than one story set in any one country. Included stories will be a mix of previously published and new work. Each contributor will be entitled to a contributor copy and author discounts on additional copies.

Additional copies may be purchased at a discount for as long as the anthology is in print.
