I think I'll let ID PRESS PUBLISHING tell you what they're all about. They do it best: So, basically, they like to play with genres...and elicit story from those who do not always feel comfortable or at home in the genre being explored.

The Purgatorio Dialogues – Meet the Writers of Purgatorium Part V

My last visit with the Purgatorium Anthology contributors! Amanda Tompkins is always a delight in person, and I find her endlessly interesting. She makes me laugh and she's also ΓΌber smart and tells fascinating stories. I'm really looking forward to her words in Purgatorium. I will not soon forget the motto she leaves us with… Continue reading The Purgatorio Dialogues – Meet the Writers of Purgatorium Part V
