Launch Day: Alternative Truths

Alternative Truths is a look at the post-election America that is, or will be, or could be. We attach no manacles to the word truth to bind it to our visions. Instead we free it to find its own way through the minds of the two dozen writers who have shared their vision of the future in either sensitively written allegorical tales such as Relics by Louise Marley, a woman who grew up bucking hay in Montana and moved on to a talented musical performer and successful novelist; or the raw humor of Adam Troy-Castro in his Q & A, which takes on the verbal veracity of Donald J. Trump.  
Jim Wright (of Stonekettle Station) imagines Trump giving the Gettysburg Address. Blaze Ward, Daniel Kimmel, Janka Hobbs and I explore dystopias. Marleen Barr and Adam Troy-Castro envision humorous, kinky, and scatological endings. What can I say? It rocks.
Today marks the release of B Cubed Press's Alternative Truths anthology, edited by Phyllis Irene Radford and Bob Brown. My short, "Walks Home Alone at Night" is part of this hard-hitting collection and I'm honoured to be counted among such talented authors.

"Walks Home Alone at Night" is what I would call political horror - because everything about Trump's presidency scares the living shit out of me. The story follows Meena, a third-generation Muslim American. Meena just wants to kick off her shoes and relax after an exhausting day but the men who accost her on her way home have other ideas.
