Support Interesting Fiction--Paper Egg Books

As reported by Publishers Weekly, Featherproof Books is launching a book subscription program called Paper Egg Books. This small press publishes interesting books, including a lot of experimental fiction. For the bargain price of just $20, you will receive two books per year, one in the fall and one in the spring. According to the PW story:

All Paper Egg titles will be designed by Paul Hornschemeier, the award-winning illustrator and graphic novelist. The first title released under the Paper Egg imprint will be Christian TeBordo’s debut short story collection, The Awful Possibilities, due out in October. TeBordo is the author of three novels: The Conviction and Subsequent Life of Savior Neck, Better Ways of Being Dead and We Go Liquid.

If you're one of the first 250 subscribers (and there's still room in that number), you'll get a bonus book with your subscription price: AM/PM by Amelia Gray, described by Paper Egg as "an incredible, collection of interlocked, mouth-watering short-short stories." That way, you'll have something to read while waiting for your first subscription book to arrive in October.

If you're interested, sign up here.

I like the sound of this subscription. It would be a great way to get a sample of things that aren't mainstream and bestselling. I think that the price is affordable as well. Thanks for posting this, I am going to have to look into it.
