About the Cabal

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the cabal!

Here in the Daily Cabal’s secret* internet inner sanctum, you’ll find a new piece of very short fiction here every Monday through Friday. These stories may be funny, creepy, enigmatic, evocative, thought-provoking, or several of these all at once — variety is our goal.

Because each cabal member has the final say on what he or she posts, what you’re seeing is more of a blog’s many-voiced conversation than a magazine’s harmonized ensemble.**

All Daily Cabal posts are available under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial No Derivatives license, allowing you to pass on our fiction in a guilt-free manner.***

We of the Daily Cabal invite you to explore our archives of past fiction and to stay tuned each day for new glimpses of the unexpected.

Conspiratorially yours,

The Daily Cabal

* OK, apparently not quite as secret as it might be.

** Parents of younger children please note: although much of our content will be fine for just about everyone, not all stories will be appropriate for all readers.

*** See the details here. Short version: you can copy and distribute Daily Cabal pieces as long as you leave the author’s name attached, you don’t change the piece, and you don’t make money off of the piece.
