The Society On Da Run is a science fiction subscription book written by L'Poni Baldwin. The book opens up a new genre called "subscription book" where stories from its original version are added to the book each month.
The book is comprised of short stories and poetry taking place in a world full of space dragons (Draconizica), and the other alien races that comprise the Unity of Three: the owl shifters and the insectoid species, the Crotonians. The book's stories range across different genres; such as hard science fiction (evident in it's "Guide to Space Dragons"), epic fantasy (the story "Forest of the Faerie"), dystopian fiction("ReDUMPtion" and After the "Aftermath"), zombie apocalypse ("Dino-Macro" and its sequels), horror ("Sleepover From Hell"), mystery ("Powerlines") and apocalyptic fiction ("Dragon's War 1-20"). The book also touches on the genre of boy love (the story "Platonick"), and themes of racism ("Down Home Gunner") and sexuality.
