As If Books — Editing & Publishing

Straddling the imaginary line between Genre and Literature, As If Books publishes works of thought-provoking fiction that explore the human condition against backdrops that range from the theoretically realistic to the strikingly bizarre. Here on the outlying edges of speculative fiction, we revel in the allegorical, the philosophical, the weird and the MetaModern.

Science Fiction + Magical Realism + Supernatural + Experimental + Bizarro + PostModern + Speculative + Fractopian
