My first published fiction of 2016!
I have a short story titled “Republic of Masks” included in the dystopian-themed anthology Dystopian Express from Hydra Publications. It’s a wonderful collection and includes stories from some great up-and-coming as well as established indie writers.
My story, “Republic of Masks,” imagines a future society in which citizens take to wearing masks as a way to rebel against a government that becomes overzealous with surveillance. However, the purpose of the masks morphs into something different, which, in turn, leads society down a twisted path that ends up… well, you’ll just have to read the story to find out!
