Slated for release Nov. 11

Here's more information about the forthcoming "More Alternative Truths" anthology:
"More Alternative Truths is an exploration of the consequences of politics in our daily lives. More than our individual lives, but our American identity. This has become an unofficial theme of this anthology. So many of the stories ask what America has become? What will it be? Will it devolve into a Russian style Oligarchy or will we rise to the challenge and use our hearts, our minds and our votes to return to a rational democracy, of, by, and for the people. No one knows for sure. But these top tier talented authors from across the world, from Philip Brian Hall to Bruno Lombardi to Jane Yolen give us their visions.
"You will find the witticism of Jim Wright exploring Donald Trump as Moses considering the Ten Commandments. The mental genius of Edd Vick and Manny Frishberg as they give us a Trump tweetstorm. There is much to laugh about.
"There are serious visions as well. Brad Cozzen’s brilliant Poem, America Once Beautiful reaches poignantly from today’s reality into some salvageable vision of tomorrow that borrows f romyesterday’s values. The poetry in this volume, be it Brad, Jane Yolen, Gyndyn T. Alexander or C.A. Chesse will bring new meaning to words.
"For a fun romp, jump to by Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, as she explores the importance of political hacks not annoying witches or K.G. Anderson’s, the Right Man for the Job, as LBJ rides to the rescue.
"Coping. How do we cope. This painful question is explored by three of our best and brightest. Jill Zeller, a woman who won’t write of Elves, has given us “A Woman Walks Into a Bar,” an affirmation of our own choices. Choices explored brilliantly by Karin L. Frank and Kerri Leigh Grady in their stories “HMO” and “Final Delivery.”
"There are many great stories in this collection but if you must read one, and only one, then read “Small Courages,” and let bring you tears of hope as you see our world through the eyes of a child and find that we can do it, we can survive, we will survive."
