“To further support Action Books’ growing community of writers and readers, we’ve decided to launch several new initiatives via the Action Books Blog. Selected by our editorial staff, a recurring series called Action Fokus will highlight excerpts from 12+ radical manuscripts submitted by poets and translators during our 2022 Open Reading Period. James Pate (author of Flowers Among the Carrion) will curate Action Books’ all-new Strange Fiction Series, featuring stories that will “morph, stretch, and bewitch” readers’ understanding of the “strange” on a monthly basis. Many thanks also goes out to everyone who has already subscribed to both our 2023 Subscription and our 3-year Subscription. Consider asking your local library to carry Action Books titles today!”
