Who we are...
Pushpin Books was established April 1, 2016, to publish, promote, and sell short speculative fiction. Here at Pushpin Books, we specialize in 5,000-12,000 word tales--stories that allow the author to create more nuanced characters and more intricate worlds while still embracing the short form. Yes, we like short stories with a little more meat on the bone.
Our major business goal is to publish speculative fiction anthologies, individual stories, and occasionally, themed short story collections. Whatever the format, our mission is to celebrate short speculative fiction.
Editor-in-Chief, Bascomb James has edited two Far Orbit anthologies for World Weaver Press, Far Orbit: Speculative Space Adventures (2014) and Far Orbit Apogee (2015) and a third anthology, Hyperpowers, for Third Flatiron Publications (2016). His next anthology, Far Orbit: Last Outpost, will be published by Pushpin Books in 2016. Bascomb has earned a reputation for being an efficient, author-friendly editor and we look forward to his contributions and direction in the coming years.
