The Strong Stuff

The First Fictional Café Anthology Has Arrived!!!

October 3, 2019: The Fictional Café is proud to announce the publication of The Strong Stuff: The Best of Fictional Café, 2013-2017. This beautiful, coffeetable-format anthology presents the fiction, the poetry, and the four-color art and photography of 55 contributors, wrapped in an original cover designed by Steve Sangapore, FC’s Fine Arts Barista.

The Strong Stuff (like the coffee we prefer) is a first-edition, limited printing of 200 copies. It is not available on Amazon, or as an ebook. As such, it’s a collector’s edition, a treasure to those whose creativity appears between its covers as well as to you members of the FC Coffee Club. Future editions are planned.

November 25, 2020: The Strong Stuff: The Best of Fictional Café, 2013-2017, makes a great gift. The list price of this oversize, 258-page softcover book is $25.95, but we’re offering copies to Coffee Club members for $20.00 with free shipping! To place your order, please write us at jack@fictionalcafe.com. Be sure to put “Anthology 20” in the subject line to get the discounted price. Tell us how many copies you would like and your mailing address. We’ll invoice you on PayPal and send your books as soon as we receive your payment.

Order soon! We have fewer than 75 copies left and when they’re gone, The Strong Stuff becomes a collector’s edition!

    I just want to thank everyone there. I was in the anthology. Which was not only a huge honor, but a great piece of art. You guys love all my quirky stories, and I love you for it.”

  • A beautifully produced Anthology. Thanks very much for including my art amongst a plethora of interesting and well written work.

    I’m advertising this on Facebook. Here’s what I said. I also posted the link.

    I’m going through this anthology. The anthology, “The Strong Stuff,” published by Fictional Café, is beautifully designed and includes many fine writers that FC has published online for several years. I’m honored that my poems made the cut and are included in this lovely book.

    Hey, just got my copies yesterday and started reading and looking. Terrific writing, eclectic stories–something for everyone–and the art work is great.The design and color scheme, cover art work, is attractive; got comments from unexpected folks when carrying it around this morning at the hospital with my wife, so it’s an eye catcher. I gave it a mention, too, on my Facebook page(D.L. Coleman), where I post items about writing and book stuff, for what it’s worth( the readership is kind of small), but maybe it’ll sell a copy or two…Good work on it. Very high quality production, as good or better than expected…Thanks for both the presentation and for the opportunity to be involved with it.
