An Original Anthology Magazine

Called “one of the best and most exciting publications in the field today” by Adventures FantasticFiction 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 as well as 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:
Anthea Sharp, Lee Allred, Annie Reed, Leah Cutter, Dayle A. Dermatis, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Dean Wesley Smith, Kevin J. Anderson, Ron Collins, Leslie Claire Walker, John Helfers, Kerrie L. Hughes, Mark Leslie, Cat Rambo, Christy Fifield and Phaedra Weldon.

Congratulations to Ron Collins, who was a finalist for the Short Mystery Fiction Society’s 2016 Derringer Award for his story, “The White Game,” originally published in Fiction River: Hidden in Crime last November.

FR Sparks ebook cover web


Edited by Rebecca Moesta

Everyone faces dark times. Everyone looks for a light to get through. These fifteen stories show teen heroes/heroines using creativity and heart to find their inner “spark” to overcome adversity, evil, or ignorance. In this anthology for all ages, join a girl who struggles to accept the zombie working at her school, a second-rate superhero who might just have what it takes after all, and a young magic-user who must decide whether to break the rules to save the day. These compelling young heroes/heroines prove sometimes it simply takes a spark to light a fire in the darkness.

FR Visions of the Apolcalypse ebook cover webVisions of the Apocalypse

Edited by John Helfers

The end of the world might come in many forms: ecological disaster, alien invasion, cosmic chaos…the possibilities for destruction seem endless. So, how will those facing the end of the world deal with impending doom? The fourteen talented authors of Fiction River’s latest volume explore just that. From an intrepid adventurer fleeing a world-destroying terror to a man who discovers the most savage destroyers of civilization are closer than he thought, to a chilling tale of our whole planet hurled into the icy black reaches of space, these gripping stories demonstrate why Astro Guyz calls Fiction River “a wonderful, mind-expanding read.”
