Into the Ruins is a quarterly journal published four times a year. Each issue is a 7″ x 10″ trade paperback with approximately 100-120 pages of stories, editorials, letters, book reviews, and any other surprises we come up with. The primary focus and bulk of the content is fiction. Our stories will present visions of a future of decline, collapse, and rebirth. Please read our Philosophy page for further information about the type of writing we plan to publish or our Submissions page for specific authorial guidelines.
