Got a story to share? We’d love to hear it.

We’re a small team here at Stray Books, but we are always looking for new people to work with. If you have a great idea and a manuscript or short story, send them our way. From experienced writers to first-time authors, we want to hear from you.

There’s only one catch: For full-length manuscripts, we ask that they be mailed to the following address.

 Short Stories for Pulp Kings Magazine

With six issues a year, we’re always looking for new stories for our Pulp Kings Magazine. Each issue has a theme and focus, but is always grounded in the pulp genres (sci-fi, horror, comedy, fantasy). We accept any length of short story up to 10, 000 words. We’re currently accepting short stories for our February issue, which has a love/anti-love theme. If you’ve got a genre story about love, or the lack thereof, we’d love to check it out.

We’re looking for any and all short stories set in our province. Places are defined by the people who live in them, and we’re eager to hear from the people who live here. The stories can be about anything, not just cowboys and hockey, so long as Alberta fits in somewhere.
