So this got announced yesterday:
My story “Feeling Like a Big Kid at the Beginning of the End” (written during the first few weeks of the Covid-19 lockdown here in the States, when my county decided to extend Spring Break and “see what happens”) will be appearing in Chiral Mad 5, due out sometime in 2021 by Written Backwards and curated by my long-time (and long-suffering) editor Michael Bailey.
This will be the third time I’ve appeared in a Chiral Mad anthology–my story “The Agonizing Guilt of Relief (Last Days of a Ready-Made Victim)” appeared in Chiral Mad 3 and the novella I wrote with Bracken MacLeod How We Broke (which was later released as a limited-edition paperback and hardcover by Thunderstorm Books) appeared in Chiral Mad 4.
What’s different with this anthology is that, much like the first Chiral Mad, 100% of proceeds will be going to charity–this time the Black Lives Matter movement. In 2020, it’s fucking awful that this needs to be done, but it does, and we all do what we can.
To that end, if you wanted to get in on the IndieGoGo campaign for Chiral Mad 5 (there are, as of this writing, 12 days left), go to this link.
