This week has been quite exciting. It’s the release of the long-awaited small-press anthology, Reading Glasses: Stories Through an Unpredictable Lens from Hypothetical Press. It’s available in paperback and Kindle through Amazon.
Reading Glasses is a speculative fiction anthology that was funded through Kickstarter and sponsored by the South Jersey Writers’ Group.
Suspenseful and mysterious, with a touch of ironic humor, Reading Glasses will transport you to the very edge of reality.
Incapable of sleep and forced to keep it secret, a young woman searches tirelessly for the truth about her past.
A man seeking escape from his mistakes happens upon a dried up bayside settlement with unfinished business of its own.
A spinster returns to her childhood home to teach a valuable lesson to family vultures descending on her final days.
In a dystopian future where reading and writing are illegal, a fringe dweller discovers a pair of glasses that proves the literary world is alive and well.
A boy hiding a secret from himself rescues a tiny turtle, and soon discovers that a hard exterior isn’t the solution.
Under the threat of international warfare, a woman coming to terms with the death of dear friends learns that their disappearance was not as permanent as it appeared.
A highborn priestess’ faith is tested when she learns that even those she trusts the most can betray everything she believes in.
An old man with a terminal illness, who feels he got life all wrong, wants to make sure that at least he gets death right.
Escape to the lives of these curious characters, and lose yourself in thirteen original stories. From life on a space station to tales that orbit a little too close to home, Reading Glasses is a compelling, fantastical departure from the familiar.
