Unstuck #1 by Aimee Bender, J. Robert Lennon, Joe Meno, Amelia Gray

Unstuck is an independent, non-profit, nationally distributed literary annual based in Austin, Texas. We emphasize literary fiction with elements of the fantastic, the futuristic, the surreal, or the strange — a broad category that would include the work of writers as diverse as Borges, Ballard, Calvino, Huxley, Tutuola, Abe and (of course) Vonnegut. In our pages, you’ll find straight-up science fiction and fantasy; domestic realism with a twist of the magical; and work that experiments with form or blurs the boundaries between poetry and prose.

Our hefty debut issue includes new short stories from Aimee Bender, J. Robert Lennon, Amelia Gray, Joe Meno, Marisa Matarazzo, Arthur Bradford, Helen Phillips, Matthew Derby, Rachel Swirsky, Matthew Vollmer, Lindsay Hunter, John Maradik & Rachel B. Glaser, Leslie What, Charles Antin, Meghan McCarron, Sharona Muir, Andrew Friedman, Julia Whicker, Judson Merrill, Karin Tidbeck, and Randy Schaub . . . new poems by Kiki Petrosino, Zach Savich, Dan Rosenberg, Kaethe Schwehn, and Patrick Haas . . . and a new essay by Rennie Sparks.

Unstuck's carefully designed Nook edition includes: the full text of the 352-page print edition; a table of contents with navigation; cover art by photographer Timothy J. Fuss; and dozens of line drawings by illustrator Matthew Domiteaux.

Unusual stories that are very well written. Julia Whicker's "Wonderblood" is stunning.
