Fictions at Revelore

\\ Stories at the liminal edge \\

As poet Muriel Rukeyser so powerfully explained, “The universe is made of stories, not atoms.” And through story, we can revision and reimagine through new myths and visionary narratives what our universe might look like. And while dystopian stories that have flooded the literary landscape continue to suggest a desolate future, there is always light on the horizon. At Revelore Press, we see a future that is enchanted, magical, at times surreal, intersectional, inclusive, vibrant and dynamic in voice, representative of the many and not the few, engaging, challenging, socially aware and always pushing us toward new ideas of what is possible in futures imagined and still to come.

We believe that through new myths, new heroes may emerge that can illuminate the path forward for all of us.

What we seek: books that tear through the veil, dance along the liminal edge, move forward and backward in time, works that enchant, fictions that double as grimoires, stories of unlikely heroes, terrible villains, and unimagined outcomes.


As much as we are curating fictions, we are also curating possibilities and the prose we seek reflects this very core idea. Shock us, dazzle us, and take us somewhere unexpected. Be dark, be bold, and always be beautiful. And together, let’s put dazzling new myths into the world.
