The Rabbit Hole

The annual Rabbit Hole volumes are produced by members of the Writers Co-op, but submissions are welcomed from all interested authors. All rights remain with the authors. You can get a sense of the types of stories we like (basically anything weird) by looking over the previously published volumes, and going to the Submission Guidelines (link below). We are currently accepting submissions for The Rabbit Hole volume 6. Deadline for submissions is April 30th, 2023.

Volume Zero

The world is weird. If any proof was needed, the first few months of 2020 provided it. But did we need proof? Didn’t we already know that you only have to scratch the surface to see the weirdness beneath? Sometimes it oozes out, suppurates, infects; sometimes it leaps out, takes root and blossoms.

We get used to it, carry on as if it wasn’t there. But we have it inside us – we are weird. What you see as normal is just the mosaic of abnormality that you experienced last week, yesterday, this morning – so of course you’ll experience it tomorrow. Or will you?

Volume One

web cover

How do you like your weirdness? A subtle nudge towards the untoward? A quick zap of zany? Or a full-on assault of aberration? Whatever your taste, you’ll find it here, and many more strains of strange that you didn’t suspect existed. From magic rain to a talking (severed) head, extraordinary eggs to belligerent birds, the stories in this collection enter the rabbit hole to explore its hidden corners and winding ways. Through all the variety, what they have in common is originality, creativity and fine writing. Are you ready to go in and see for yourself? The door to the warren is open…

Volume Two

This second volume of The Rabbit Hole is every bit as flumbiferous as the first. Which is just as Alice likes, because weirdness abounds and the warren never ends. Would you like to be in a video game? It comes at a cost. Or perhaps you’ve done something foolish? Never mind – it can be undone. For as we all know, by whatever means possible, the show must go on.

29 stories to leave you pondering realms beyond our perception.

Unless, perhaps, they’ve been there all along but we just weren’t looking the right way.

29 writers, 29 ways into weird.

Volume 3

Romantically weird, weirdly romantic: 27 stories that take you down the rabbit hole to love. But if love never did run smooth, here it goes wild – this is love that twists and torments, plunges and prowls, love that crosses boundaries unknown. Oysters and aliens, ghost and gods, stalkers and stars – there’s no limit to the forms that love can take. Why, that toaster – be honest now – are you sure it doesn’t arouse a burning desire?

Tragedy, humour, mystery, drama, hope – Volume 3 of The Rabbit Hole brings you love in its most mischievous guises, from cunning and cruel to cloud nine bliss. Confirmation, if any were needed, that love is a weird, but many-splendoured thing.

Volume Four

Stepping into the Rabbit Hole for the fourth time, you descend into madness.  But is madness zany or just insane? Does the world, the universe, shift under your feet, or is your mind slipping into another realm of being?  Maybe that safe reality you so treasure is a mirage, that all knowing, wise god actually having the deep wisdom of a teenage pizza delivery boy, who may just be an alien. Then again, we all may just be in hell.

Twenty-five authors take you on trips into madness.  Volume 4 of The Rabbit Hole offers you twenty-nine delightfully weird stories which will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you wonder about reality.  All you need do is follow that helpful little cottontail for another voyage down the Rabbit Hole.

Volume 5

Welcome to the Rabbit Hole. On our fifth excursion into the warren of the odd, 37 authors lead us down their own little burrows of strangeness: an army of penguins, music that cures, aliens that communicate through old cartoons, images of the future that save, unwanted visions of the now, and, oh yes, it is raining lawyers. All have one thing in common, they are just…plain…weird.

Weird can be funny, weird can be sad, weird can be thoughtful, weird can be mad, but the one thing in common is that weird shares experiences you have, thankfully, never had.

Just be careful, all little bunnies are not nice, but they are memorable.
