Storyteller is looking for stories that are mostly true-to-life with genre twists. The theme is the absurdity and alienation that we all face on a daily basis living in a world that becomes more and more virtual every day. 

We're looking for stories that aren't necessarily literary, nor genre. We want stories that could be called genre-realism. Realistic plot lines with a splash of your favorite genre mixed in.
