Hedgehogs? Speculative Fiction? What?

Exactly! Fuzzy Hedgehog Press is a small, independent publisher of high quality, weird speculative fiction for all orientations.

In a market saturated with zombies, apocolypses, elves, dragons and sorcery, we want to provide narrative unique enough to fully engage your imagination. Our authors take the time and energy to craft creative worlds and realize the struggles of dynamic, living characters.

This isn’t your garden variety science fiction and fantasy. This is speculative fiction from beyond the hedge!

What do you mean by "weird"?

Weird speculative fiction combines the fantastic with the technical. Myth and fantasy become intertwined with science and logic. Our fiction purposely breaks reality—shatters, twists or distorts it. You’ll part with many of your preconceptions about how the universe operates. We can open the door, but it’s up to you to step through.

What do you mean by "all orientations"?

Describing fiction as “gay,” “lesbian,” or “LGBT” is problematically loaded. Many stories classified this way are assumed to fit under the romance or erotica categories.

“Fiction for all orientations” means that our stories include characters of all orientations, but at the end of the day, they are stories about characters’ whole lives—their adventures, their families, their friendships, their careers, and so on.
