Storm Cycle 2014: The Best of Kind of a Hurricane Press (510 pages) is a compilation of the editors' favorite pieces from the six 2014 online journals as well as our six 2014 print anthologies. A tireless search for poetic talent proved exceptionally fruitful, and the selection process for this anthology was brutal. After a great deal of reading, re-reading, and discussion, the editors amassed an extremely diverse and eclectic body of work to put forth to represent what Kind of a Hurricane Press is about: publishing the best poetry and flash fiction being crafted today.

In creating the third anthology of 2015, Objects in the Rear View Mirror (188 pages), Kind of a Hurricane Press asked our authors to let their imaginations rev up the highways and cruise down the backstreets of their minds. As always, our authors filled our literary parking garages with amazing work. So roll the windows down, turn the radio up, and enjoy poetry and fiction from the open road. We believe Objects in the Rear View Mirror will take you on a journey to some place uniquely interesting. Enjoy.

In creating the second anthology of 2015, Twice Upon a Time (244 pages), Kind of a Hurricane Press asked our authors to let their imaginations run wild with childhood memories, delve into the depths of, and if necessary, even re-create fairytales. As always, our authors pulled out all the stops, and created, what we believe is one of our finest, and most universally appealing anthologies to date. Twice Upon a Time has something for everyone. Enjoy.

In creating the first anthology of 2015, Petals in the Pan (266 pages), Kind of a Hurricane Press asked our authors to let travel the lines of the blossoming and the discarded, by exploring the themes of flowers and dust. As always, our authors dug deep into the crevices and soared straight into the sun to find a way to present us with amazing work that married these two emblems of life. Petals in the Pan has something for everyone. Enjoy.
