Oh, hello!

Welcome to Stray Books, home to creative, weird, and wonderful stories coming out of Calgary, Alberta. Our goal is pretty simple: to connect amazing story-tellers with amazing people. If you like stories (and who doesn’t?) you’re in the right place.

In the age of blockbusters, Netflix, and countless other entertainment options, deciding to publish good ol’ print novels — and eBooks, of course — might seem a bit dated. But at Stray Books, we believe that written works not only have a place, but also have a type of freedom you won’t find in movies, TV, and YouTube. Printed stories can be wild — free of the high-budgets and the difficulties of putting together other media. By utilizing technology, we’re able to keep our team small and local while looking around us for new and exciting authors, artists, and creative-minded people in general.

One of the things we’re most proud of is our home: Alberta. Our province is always changing, bringing in new people and new stories every day. We’re here to share those stories with you. If you’re a writer or an artist, feel free to drop us a line in our Submit section, and if you’re a reader, be sure to check out our first release, Future Fables and Strange Stories.
