KERNPUNKT is an independent publisher of literary fiction, science fiction, historical fiction, and children's books.  We enjoy symbolism, non-traditional plots, unique characters, taboo, and experimentation.  We don't subscribe to the idea that formulaic writing is good writing.  We like "challenging".  In short, we value art over entertainment. 

The point of KERNPUNKT is to discover the heart of unique literature and art.


Electric Literature is a nonprofit dedicated to making literature more exciting, relevant, and accessible. We are committed to publishing work that is intelligent and unpretentious, to elevating new voices, and to examining how literature and storytelling can help illuminate social justice issues. Our writers and readers are engaged with current events as well as arts and culture.


When you buy a book from Small Press Distribution, you don't just get something terrific to read: you help independent publishers and writers keep more money from their projects, which in turn helps nurture and sustain the literary arts as a whole.

Because we're a nonprofit, everything we do is aimed at helping essential but underrepresented literary communities participate fully in the marketplace and in the culture at large. We do this by offering book distribution, information services, and public advocacy programs to hundreds of small publishers.

Buy a book from SPD, enjoy a great read, and support the literary community!


 Goodreads is an Amazon company and "social cataloging" website founded in December 2006 and launched in January 2007 by Otis Chandler, a software engineer and entrepreneur, and Elizabeth Khuri. The website allows individuals to freely search Goodreads' database of books, annotations, and reviews. Users can sign up and register books to generate library catalogs and reading lists. They can also create their own groups of book suggestions, surveys, polls, blogs, and discussions.


The Chattahoochee Review is a literary journal published by Georgia State University’s Perimeter College. Appearing regularly since 1981, we appeal to the educated general public for our readership and over the years have expanded our focus to include both international readers and writers.

 My story, “Empty Barn,” appeared in Volume 37.1, which is available for purchase, if you’re interested in reading the story.


The Journal of Experimental Fiction was founded in 1986 by novelist Eckhard Gerdes in order to gain wider attention for the incredible innovative fiction writing being done at that time.  JEF has been proud to be able to introduce the reading public to many fresh, original voices in the world of literature, and it continues its ongoing quest to find and introduce such material. JEF also acknowledges the great voices of innovative writing of years past and publishes essays about those voices of innovation. We publish a general fiction issue bi-annually, or thereabouts, as well as introducing new novels to the reading public, novels that most likely would find themselves locked out by the larger presses, who have no time for or interest in innovation anymore and only care about their bottom lines.


ENTROPY is a website featuring literary and related non-literary content. We like to think of ourselves as more than just a magazine or a website, but as also a community space. We seek to create a space where writers can engage with other writers, can participate in a literary community, and where thinkers can collaborate and share both literary and non-literary ideas. This means that we seek to cover topics such as video games, graphic novels, interactive literature, science fiction, fantasy, music, film, art, and other topics in addition to literary reviews, interviews, conversations, and articles on experimental literature, translation, small press practices, and performance. We appreciate diverse beliefs and perspectives and want to encourage open discussion through a variety of opinions. (Therefore, the views and opinions of contributors are not necessarily the views of Entropy as a whole.)
