PseudoPod 845: 15 Eulogies Scribbled Inside a Hello Kitty Notebook

By Carlie St. George


I didn’t know him well. Nobody did, really: he was the new kid. But he was funny, and he was cute, and I probably would’ve said yes when he asked me out, except that’s when the gullet-eaters attacked, and he didn’t know not to scream. Stuff like gullet-eaters and werewolves and carnivorous pixies didn’t happen at his old school, I guess. Anyway, they ripped his throat out in seconds. Pulled out his esophagus. Chewed.

Anthologies and Collections from 2022: Dream Warriors

Here at PseudoPod we believe that short stories in anthologies (pieces by different authors) and collections (pieces from a single author) deserve to be seen by more readers.

Anthologies and Collections and PseudoPod and You III: Dream Warriors

There are a number of short stories in anthologies and collections that deserve to get in front of more readers.

We and our audience love short fiction, and we never have enough space to run everything we want in a year, so we want to get samples of entire books of short fiction in front of our audience.

Check out the showcase we did in November and December 2020 starting with “The Genetic Alchemist’s Daughter” by Elaine Cuyegkeng from the anthology Black Cranes. The 2021 Showcase started off with “Sleep Hygiene” by Gemma Files from the collection In That Endlessness, Our End. (Continue Reading…)
