All These Shiny Worlds

All These Shiny Worlds

The 2016 ImmerseOrDie Anthology. What do you get when you ask 34 of today’s top indie authors to each submit a story and then ask a team of judges to scour that ore and pick out the gems? You get All These Shiny Worlds:

  • A world of today, divided, black from white, good from evil, and held apart by the taste of a cookie.

  • A world of griffons and glimmer bunnies, wise old mothers, sassy llamas, and the magic of beer.

  • A world of contemplation and serenity, of service and devotion, ruled by a jewel and guarded by children.

Plus 12 more, for a total of 15 worlds to explore.

From the brutal curators at comes this collection of indie short stories, each a distinct jewel forged in the fires of judgment, and all carrying one simple promise:

Guaranteed not to suck.
