Established in 2009, Undertow Publications is an independent press dedicated to publishing bold and unique short fiction of exceptional literary merit in the weird fiction and horror genre. Our impeccably designed books have been nominated for many awards—including the World Fantasy Award—and twice won the Shirley Jackson Award for Edited Anthology. We believe that the short story is the perfect art form. Our goal is to keep this art form alive and viable; to share great new contemporary writing; and to prove that the short story is a vital mode of literature that displays great craft, is entertaining and provocative, and comments on society and the human condition in imaginative ways. We are endearingly weird, and proud of it.
