Shout
The 25 incredibly talented authors and poets in this anthology aren''t politicians asking for your vote. They aren''t policy wonks peddling a three-point plan to undo the damage of the Trump administration. They aren''t partisans concerned with winning at any cost. They are artists of different genders, races, nationalities, and religions. They''re emerging authors and New York Times bestsellers. In this collection, you''ll find stories that explore futures where climate change, sexism, racism, and capitalism have run rampant in ways that should only be left to the imagination. These writers are staring, clear-eyed, at the rising tide of fascism in the United States and around the globe. They''re asking you: "What kind of world do you want to live in tomorrow?" and "Who do you want to be today?" And they aren''t asking quietly.
