Stamp Stories were texts of 50 words or less, printed on cardstock, and shipped free from participating presses. We wanted to tie together the indie press community in a vibrant yet viable way, and so this venture was born. Through 2010, we solicited stamp-sized texts from 100 authors and distributed the physical Stamp Stories through more than 40 participating presses. [ C. ] collects all of these texts into one perfect-bound edition.
