‘Tumble over a cliff in pursuit of a cherished plaything. Stray into bear territory. Scrape a drunk from the gutter. Ride the airstreams with a winged demigod. Receive a letter from a stranger. Meet a woman with a bite mark on her face. Assume the waters can be stopped. Survive the butterfly invasion. Grieve for another man’s child. Sell twenty-four copies of dross. Inherit your father’s gifts. Succumb to your drug of choice. Watch helpless at the vanishing of the herd. Imagine the giant horses. Fight or flight.’
‘Unthology’s most defining characteristic is quality.’ – The Short Review
‘Unthology is quietly becoming a reliable guide to the state of the modern short story, a companion to Nicholas Royle’s annual Best of British Short Stories anthology.’ – The Workshy Fop

First published in 2010, Unthology is a short fiction series that showcases extraordinary stories from new and established writers. Published annually, Unthology includes stories of any length, from flash fiction to novelettes, and allows different styles and subjects to rub up against each other to achieve an accumulative effect.
In Unthology, the classic, realist slice-of-life encounters the shocking, the strange and the experimental on common ground.
