IFWG prides itself for supporting underrepresented authors and less mainstream subject matter/literary styles/experimentation in the speculative fiction fields. A natural extension of this philosophy is the establishment of a ‘Chapbook Series’ of titles, all focused heavily on shorter pieces, experimental or ‘fringe’ in the best possible interpretation of the word, and captivating for readers.
