World Unknown Review Volume III is here!

Great news, everyone! The 2016 edition of the World Unknown Review is currently available for your reading pleasure! Our third year brought an absolutely staggering surge of submissions, which meant it was really difficult to pick a mere ten stories to be features, but I somehow managed to fish out the shining tales that would bring a little bit of something for everyone to the table. We welcomed our first bit of poetry to the Review this year, as well as welcome two more countries into the wide world of WUR, Jamaica and India, with authors from the US, Canada, and the UK as well. But enough about that, let’s get to the links:

You can find the Kindle version, only 99 centers, here:

The CreateSpace paperback, $7.83, (where we get a little higher commission) is here:

And the Amazon paperback, $7.83, (which has convenience on its side) is here:

Here’s what you’ll find inside:

“A Comedy of Edwards,” by Adam L. Bealby, the story of a down-on-his-luck comedian who falls into the gig of a lifetime.

“To Catch a President” by James Wylder, a sci-fi romp where different factions vie for the possession of the President of Mars.

“Lullaby Land” by Sarah Gribble, the heartfelt tale of a young woman coming to terms with the death of her child.

“The Scrimshawed Ostrich Egg” by Robert Allen Lupton, which involves pirate treasure and New Orleans, so it was pretty much a shoe-in for me.

“Stretching Out, Remembering Names” a poem from Ribhu about longing and complacency, or at least that’s what it inspired in me.

“The Hero of Madgeburg” by Max D. Stanton, following a battle-shaken soldier through a nightmarish flight for freedom.

“A Good One” by Nick Manzolillo, a scenario that any creative soul out there will be able to relate to.

“Behind the Eight Ball” by Lena Ng, where a unsuspecting curio brings a startling new twist into a woman’s life.

“Muffins as Big as Your Head” by Rick Ewing, a dizzying look into an aspiring young chef’s trials and tribulations of life and love.

And “The Story of Ava” by Karen Heslop, in which the discovery of a body leads to an investigation with more layers than a rotting onion.

I know there’s at least a handful of stories in there that you’ll fall in love with, or, if you’re anything like me, you’ll love all ten. So please check out this year’s review, check out the participating authors and discover some of their other works, and sit tight. Only 365 more days or so until Volume IV!

Happy reading!


  1. I bought it for my kindle~ Lullaby Land by Sarah Gribble bravo!! I am in that club, the club none of us want to be in. I buried my 2 month old son (he died totally unexpected of SIDS) 33 years ago and although the pain has lessened as I enjoy my living children and now grandchildren~~ that emptiness in my heart and tragic day is always and forever will be there. I do not go to the cemetery like I used to but I remember on his first birthday on February 23rd I was nearly nine months pregnant and sat in the car and cried. The tears were mixed with sadness and joy~~ sadness for the emptiness that Brian’s death brought to my heart and then joy in my heart at the new life I was carrying.
