Official press release…

We are thrilled to announce BOTH SIDES: An Anthology of Border Noir, edited by Bram Stoker Award nominee Gabino Iglesias.

Agora Books, the new imprint dedicated to publishing diverse voices in crime fiction, will release BOTH SIDES in 2020. See below for submission and publication details:


From Gabino Iglesias: La frontera is full of stories. Real stories, not those Trump makes up. The border is a powerful place where countries collide. It’s a weird space of dreams, struggles, promises, lies, fear, and redemption. It’s a multicultural and bilingual space where people know that hustling to protect your loved ones or offer them a better life is a drive strong enough to blur ethical codes. Sadly, the border is also a place where drugs make people a lot of money, corruption stains everything, and violence fills the landscape with danger and ghosts. In ZERO SAINTS, I wrote this: “What happens when you cross la frontera is that you shatter, you stop being you and turn into a new person that belongs nowhere, that has no home, no roots. Going back is impossible and moving forward is like jumping into a cave and hoping that it’s not too deep, that the rocks don’t mangle you too much, and that el monstruo that waits for you en la oscuridad is not too hungry.” Now I want some of the most talented authors to visit this space from their perspective. I want them to show the world what they see on both sides. It’s time to give border noir the attention it deserves.

Here are the details:

What I want: A short pitch. One hundred words will do. Let me know what you’re planning.

What I don’t want: narratives about how bad immigration is for our country or stories from folks who only learned about la Mara Salvatrucha when they showed up in the news recently.

Word count: 5,000-7,000 words, but we can talk about it if you’re over or under.

Payment: $75.00 per story

Deadline: If your pitch is accepted, your story will be due by July 1st, 2019.

BOTH SIDES will be published in 2020 by Agora, the new imprint from Polis Books.
