About

Sporty Spec: Games of the Fantastic is a planned paperback anthology of flash fiction and poetry about sports and games with a speculative twist. The sports and games may be of this world, such as basketball, chess, tennis, poker, etc., or of the author's imagination, but the stories and poems must have an element of science fiction, fantasy, or supernatural horror. If it's not speculative, I'm not interested. Sporty Spec will be published by Raven Electrick Ink, the new print publishing arm of e-zine Raven Electrick, now in its eighth year.
