We've rallied a platoon of crime, western, thriller, fantasy, noir, horror and transgressive authors to support PROTECT's important work: lobbying for legislation that protects children from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse.

Among PROTECT's victories are the Protect Our Children Act of 2008, which mandated that the Justice Department change course and design a new national nerve center for law enforcement to wage a war on child exploitation, the Hero to Hero program, which employs disabled veterans in the battle against child abuse, and Alicia's Law.

No rules, no quarter.
Make him a hero. Make him a perp. Make him a throwaway reference. Whatever fired the writer's imagination...all amalgamated into an anthology unequaled and inspired by the most vexing juggernaut of modern American politics — Dick Cheney.
Tearing out of wilderness comes D*CKED, satirical Deathmobile – dark, sleek, and muscled-out. Get ready to laugh and run for cover. You’re about to get D*CKED.
"Old hands and new voices give a no-holds-barred effort and don’t let up until the job is done. The stories will hit you hard, knock you down, make you laugh, make you think. From provocative to hilarious to dark to devious, D*CKED delivers a hell of a ride.”
Sophie Littlefield, author of A Bad Day For Pretty and A Bad Day For Scandal
“A demented, sardonic take on America’s only memorable Vice President. This is the magnificent bastard writ large: Dick Cheney as profane éminence grise, as curmudgeonly killer and murderous memorist … as laconic lothario and quippy Machiavelli. … I loved this sucker “BIG TIME,” as DC himself would say.”
Craig McDonald, author of One True Sentence and El Gavilan
“Until I read D*CKED, I had no reason to be glad that Dick Cheney was born.”
Kyle Minor, author of In the Devil’s Territory
