A proudly independent publisher of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror.

Muddy Paw Press is dedicated to elevating the best fiction in the world. We publish short stories, novellas, novels, and anthologies; our focus is on work that exudes merit in such a way that it insists to see the light of day.

Once a year, we publish an anthology of horror known as AMERICAN DREAD. The short stories are an amalgamation of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror. Submission instructions to be considered for the anthology are listed in the guidelines.

Take a look at some of our authors if you'd like to get a better idea about what interests us, here.
