UNTHOLOGY what is unthology?

First published in 2010, Unthology is a short fiction series that showcases extraordinary stories from new and established writers. Published annually, Unthology includes stories of any length, from flash fiction to novelettes, and allows different styles and subjects to rub up against each other to achieve an accumulative effect.

In Unthology, the classic, realist slice-of-life encounters the shocking, the strange and the experimental on common ground.


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.
