About the Press

The Piker Press is a weekly journal for arts, sciences, fiction and non-fiction, featuring a wide array of literature, from humor to drama. We like to think of it as the illegitimate, online child of Analog and National Geographic, but funnier.

What is a Filthy Piker?

The Grateful Dead had Deadheads. The Washington Redskins have Hoggettes. The Piker Press has Filthy Pikers.
