UNTHOLOGY showcases the work of new or established writers and can include short stories of any length, reportage, essays or novel extracts from anywhere in the world. UNTHOLOGY allows space for stories of different styles and subjects to rub up against each other. It features the classic slice-of-life well told just as much as the experimental, the shocking and strange. Unthology is published by Unthank Books and edited by Ashley Stokes.

“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, and this latest instalment should do that reputation no harm.” THE WORKSHY FOP.
