Anxiety Press



Anxiety Press is the new imprint from A Thin Slice of Anxiety. Which might best be described as a Dilaudid infused overdose via literature.

We believe books are compulsions suffused with human feeling and intellect and seek only to publish those books which arrive to us straight from the margins of society. Books which quiver in the frame of our shit-stained reality and written in trembling states using words and ideas no-one else bothers to use, either out of fear or propriety. 

We are seeking imaginative and challenging books that push boundaries. We are as interested in mood, sensation, and altered states of perception as much as we are in story. We want daring work that keeps us on edge, surprises us, and most of all, we want books that take risks. (Show us something we've never seen before or don’t waste our fucking time).

Our books will be difficult to categorize under one banner, but together they will form a polychromatic mirror of an ever increasingly bleak world.

And everyone is welcome to join us in this transgressive celebration of human excretion. 


(We are currently open for book submissions)

Anxiety Press is seeking novels, novellas, short story collections, poetry collections, and hybrid works.
