We’re happy to present Fictionaut Selects, a new series of collected stories and poetry from Fictionaut, edited by Marcelle Heath.
Each issue of Fictionaut Selects features a different theme and guest-editor. For our inaugural issue, “Up to No Good,” Jane Hammons selected and introduces stories and poems by Stephanie Bobo, Gita M. Smith, Neil Serven, Mark Reep, Stephanie Austin, and Cynthia Hawkins.
With the weekly, monthly, and all-time most-recommended lists, Fictionaut itself is a kind of emergent literary magazine, jointly edited by all members. (It bears repeating that the full text of all stories is available as RSS feed and e-reader subscription.)
But from the beginning, we have been looking for other ways to slice the ever-growing number of stories — 7,500 and counting! — and present deserving work that might have slipped through the cracks. Thus, Selects is the logical extension of Fictionaut Faves, Marcelle’s blog series in which members point to personal favorites.
There are many ways to read the first issue of Fictionaut Selects. We have created a group on the site where you can read Jane’s introduction and all the stories. We’re also offering free downloads in Kindle, epub, and pdf formats. Just click below, transfer to the device of your choice, and get up to no good with Fictionaut. A print-on-demand version will be available soon.
A big thank you to everyone involved in Fictionaut Selects #1. We hope you like it.
