Pseudopod stories

2017 first publications:

2017 reprints:

Additionally in 2017, Escape Artists published the anthology "For Mortal Things Unsung: A PseudoPod 10th Anniversary Special." This book was published in March of 2017.

This anthology is a celebration of Pseudopod bringing horror to your ears every week for over a decade. Since PseudoPod’s primary mission is the promotion and preservation of the short horror format, we wanted to assemble a companion anthology to celebrate what we’ve done over the last decade.

This anthology is not just “A Decade of PseudoPod.” In addition to reprints both familiar and new to the Pseudopod audience, the anthology includes several brand new stories by authors familiar to our audience. Editor Alex Hofelich has woven a thread of Pacific Ocean resonance throughout the anthology, to go along with our exquisite tiki mug. While this is not eligible for the anthology category, there are a number of original stories that qualify for the short fiction category.

The following are original to this publication, all copyright 2017 by their authors:

  • “In the Deepest Darkest Holes” by Damien Angelica Walters
  • “Harvest Song, Gathering Song” by A.C. Wise
  • “New and Strangely Bodied” by Orrin Grey
  • “The Lady with the Light” by Mel Kassel
  • “Standard Procedure” by Dagny Paul
  • “Walk in Beauty” by Jim Bihyeh
