Best Indie Press: A Strange Object

Those watching Austin’s burgeoning print-based literary scene have been eagerly awaiting the first title from A Strange Object, the independent press formed eight months ago by former American Short Fiction editors Jill Meyers and Callie Collins. Literati, rejoice! This October, A Strange Object releases Three Scenarios in Which Hana Sasaki Grows a Tail, the debut collection of odd, elegant, and often funny short stories by Michener fellow Kelly Luce. Slim but well-curated, the collection doesn't disappoint. The design is understated; the tail is literal. Strange, indeed! Bolstering editorial experience with collaborative projects like their new reading-and-performance series Tesseract, A Strange Object has positioned itself squarely at the forefront of Austin’s emergent world-class literary scene.
