We are excited to announce our next charity steampunk anthology, Some Time Later: Fantastic Voyages in Alternate Worlds, available soon through booksellers in print and ebook editions and at Clockwork Alchemy 2017.
Created by returning anthology editors AJ Sikes, BJ Sikes, and Dover Whitecliff, Some Time Later includes two new stories each from fifteen authors including Harry Turtledove, Kirsten Weiss, Anthony Francis, David L. Drake and Katherine L. Morse, Sharon E. Cathcart, T.E. MacArthur, and more. Fifty percent of the proceeds will be donated to public libraries.
Join us on a journey through time and genre:
- Take a tour of Jolly Olde London, where madness may (or may not) prevail and things can get hairy after dark!
- Take an airship to the ancient city of Atlantis!
- Battle demons! Match wits with mystics! Try to resist the seductive power of chocolate or the magic of tiny mushrooms!
- Maybe even steal a treasure from a dragon!
So put the kettle on, pour a strong cuppa, and curl up on the couch for a rollicking good read with Some Time Later.

We’re happy to announce that we have published our newest Instant Book, Small Surprises by Flash Fiction Forum co-founder Lita Kurth. Small Surprises includes two flash fiction stories, “The Bride” and “Life Is a Mystery.”
Instant Books are limited edition miniature books with complete stories inside. Folded from a single sheet of paper, they fit in the palm of your hand, but they’re sturdy enough to read and share.
Thinking Ink Press member Anthony Francis created the cover art for Small Surprises, and Instant Book designer Keiko O’Leary created the book layout. She selected the typography and paper, and hand-folded each book.
Small Surprises will be available for sale at the next Flash Fiction Forum on March 8 at 7:00 p.m. at SJ/Works Gallery, 365 S. Market St. in San Jose, CA.
You can also buy copies by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
