We think so highly of the writers whose stories we publish each week at Atticus Review that we’ve gone and compiled a 195-page volume of their work. These 19 narrations offer a wide array of styles, techniques, and settings that intersect at the crossroads of imagination.

For readers with an insatiable appetite for wild-eyed fanciful creations and dark-eyed reality checks, this round of lit is on us. Sit back, spark it up, and if you like how you feel when you’re finished, do pass it around.
