Here is a list of our current past anthologies. They are available in eBook and Print format (unless noted otherwise). Currently, the older ones are listed under Lulu but you can also get them at Amazon.com (usually Amazon will have the ebook cheaper–just search ‘rickys back yard’). Plus, if you have Kindle Unlimited–well–you’re in luck! Click away and read for free!
April 2018 Anthology: #RESIST
The $1000 prize went to…Ryan Dunham. Keep that name in mind because you are going to hear big things from him. Uncle John’s Band type of Big Things. Mahmoud Sharif and Steve Carr (Hey, go check out Steve’s book Sand!) split the 2nd place prize and a great host of people shared 3rd and a killer ‘4th’ was had, too. I love #Resist and not just because Lizzie was super cool and gave me exactly what I wanted with an ewok face fucking Trump! (Oh, C3C! How I miss you!) but it’s packed with great stories with a message. It is also the last Anthology we will do. Save the best for last, eh? Go buy it here:
March 2017 Anthology: Floidoip
Amazon, for the most part, is treating us well. This really is putting more money into the hands of the charities (oh and this charity is the Trevor Project, so give give give!). This is also our ‘last’ offering before our big $1000 prize contest. I love this issue as it showcases a lot of voices from all over–everyone wonderful in their own way.
You want a sample? Why not sink into: Not a Lick of Talent by Leila Teitelman
Remember, the charity for this anthology is: TheTrevorProject.org
February 2017 Anthology: Veteran
We have moved to Amazon directly instead of using Lulu for this issue. It was a bit of breaking eggs, but the price is better and that means More Money to the Charity 🙂 Plus, we were able to list the ebook as part of Kindle Unlimited–how fricken cool is that?
eBook version – $2.99 (but it can go on sale…)
Print version – $6.95
Sample of Veteran – Howard Gunston’s We Be the Monsoons
All monies will go to a grassroots veterans organization–the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association.
May 2016 Anthology: Saint
Sample of Saint – the-original-king-of-cool by John Jarzemsky.
All money here went directly to either a UK or US Cancer charity. Thank you for helping us help them 🙂
December 2015 Anthology: Torsion
Sample of Torsion – Ryan Dunham’s Torsion Sample
June 2015 Anthology: Cult
Sample of Cult – Shane Frazier’s Ist, dass ein zwerg?
