Unidentified Funny Objects Table of Contents and Web Content

We’re thrilled to announce the table of contents for the upcoming Unidentified Funny Objects anthology. It features 29 stories totaling 80,000 words. In addition we’re going to publish a free story on this web site every month, for the next six months. Five of them are excellent stories we would have loved to include in the book but couldn’t fit due to space limitations. So we’re choosing to buy them anyway (authors will be paid the same professional rates as those included in the book) and make them available on our web site instead. The sixth story is from UFO editor and publisher Alex Shvartsman, who wrote a short story based on the UFO book cover and will post it here as he promised to the Kickstarter backers.

Our Kickstarter backers helped finance these stories and so they will get to read all six stories first. We’ll e-mail them the story a day or two before posting them on the web site.

Without further ado, here is the complete list of stories we accepted (in no particular order):
