Small digital fictions
Praise & Reviews
This series is one to watch if you want to see what is happening next with our literature—a one of a kind selection of stories by some of the best rising new talents around. — Alexander Chee
Platypus Press has become one of the beacons supporting unique, tantalizing work in short and long-form. I am a particular fan of the press’ digital short fiction, in which they have shown they are in no way limited by genre, nor do they limit the artists they publish and nurture. With stellar and attractive layout and cover designs, as well as a keen eye for stories rich in detail and singular in scope, the series—with work by Brandon Taylor, Hasanthika Sirisena, Jimin Han, and Kristen Arnett, among others—has showcased the vast range of writers we need to add to our shelves. — Jennifer Baker
In 2019, the first season’s covers were shortlisted for best overall ‘Series Design’ by The Academy of British Cover Design.
