Spineless Wonders is a publishing company devoted to short, quality fiction produced by Australian writers. We’re interested in brief fiction in all its forms – short story, novella, sudden fiction and prose poetry.

Our stories are ‘spineless’ because they’ll be delivered to readers via  smart phones and laptops. Spineless Wonders stories are for any person, anywhere, who has a digital device and a little time on their hands. They are for people on the move –  commuting to work or working out at the  gym. They are for people at rest – whether  lounging at home or spine-bashing on the beach or by the pool.

And for those who love to hold the book they are reading, there are hard copy publications too.(Yes, ones with spines).

As publishers, we at Spineless Wonders are interested in all kinds of stories – contemporary realist, black comedy, steam punk, historical, literary, romance, psychological, mystery, crime, futurist, speculative and genres yet to be labelled.

How to order

Here at Spineless Wonders, we love bookshops – especially ones who champion quality short Australian fiction. So we encourage readers to purchase our print and ebooks from a local store.

But if that’s not possible, you can browse our Products page and order directly from our website using Paypal.
