Fiction River is an original anthology series. Initially, based on the anthology series of old—Universe, Orbit, Pulphouse—Fiction River rapidly evolved into its own entity. Fiction River publishes stories in many genres from all kinds of writers, with New York Times bestselling authors published alongside some of the best new voices in fiction. Fiction River also goes where no anthology series has gone before, with regular audio editions, produced in-house, and ebook and trade paperback volumes that never go out of print. And Fiction River is available in English worldwide.

Scheduled to appear in upcoming Fiction River anthologies are:
Steve Perry, T.D. Edge, Anthea Sharp, Lee Allred, Annie Reed, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Phaedra Weldon, Dean Wesley Smith, Ron Collins, Leslie Claire Walker, John Helfers and Kerrie L. Hughes, Steven Mohan, Jr. and Christy Fifield.
