Sundog Lit

Sundog Lit publishes writing that scorches the earth.

Sundog Lit is all about what emerges from the ruins, not in what idles in the calm before the storm.

Sundog Lit is blood, rusty gears, the sweat of toil, working-class, revolutionary, everyday.

Sundog Lit is literature that rages.
