Genre writing has a long history of being used to speak out against oppression where realistic writing would have been clamped down on. In January, something happened that made a lot of creatives want to find a way to speak out. We didn’t want to just talk about what was actually happening. The reality was inescapable. We wanted to use our skills as fiction writes to express our absolute horror at the way things were going.
A horror writer we’ve worked with several times approached us with an idea. Why not do an actual horror anthology about what’s going on? After some consideration, we agreed. We put out a call for stories, we read, we narrowed down the list just like for any other book.
But then something interesting happened–we started to think bigger.
How much bigger? You decide.
Our newest Kickstarter launches soon. Get ready.
