Publisher Description

This anthology collects all 25 original stories from the fourth year of Diabolical Plots, an online magazine of science fiction and fantasy. Manuals for memory tourism, a secret order of monks that tries to use a scriptural technicality to put off the end of the world indefinitely, a friendly nonbinary tank at a science fiction convention, a questionable academic paper published at a university of magic, living fossils awakened when the coal formed of them burns. The stories vary from humorous to tragic to thoughtful, from contemporary authors both new and established.

Half of the stories in this anthology you can read here for the very first time!
