About the Authors
It's only time travel. What could go wrong?
Let us show you!
What you hold in your hands is a singular opportunity to witness paradox at its worst! When it comes to time, all things are relative, including the elasticity of causality. Writers from all over the world have come together to bring you a wide array of tales from witty and whimsical to dark and dire, exploring the age-old axiom: when you tick-off time, sooner or later, he's going to quantum your physics.
Here is a tachyon of what you can expect in this cosmic collection of temporal distress: ancient artifacts, mad scientists, and wardens of time. There are government conspiracies, corporate cover-ups, presidential assassinations, and deadly betrayals. And what science fiction-fantasy collaboration would be complete without impending Armageddon, a host of doomsday invaders, tears in the time space, and killer robot bunnies?
There is so much more! I hope this has been enough perturbation to convince you to crack open this event horizon into crumbling alternate dimensions, and read about the hapless byproducts of warped imaginations.

In this companion volume to Hazardous Imaginings: The Mondo Book of Politically Incorrect Science Fiction, fourteen stories by Ian Creasey, Andrew Fox, David Wesley Hill, Liam Hogan, Claude Lalumière, and other writers from around the world push the boundaries of what is considered taboo in science fiction. From a society where telling an insult joke is a capital crime to one where letting your faucet drip may cost you your head, from a utopia where inequality and want have been abolished to a hostile planet whose isolated colonists must deal with the aftermath of a sexual assault among their own, these stories pull no punches.
With an introduction by award-winning author Barry N. Malzberg.
With stories by Keyan Bowes, Katharine Dow, Timothy Geigner, Liam Hogan, Christopher Alex Hooton, Andrew Dana Hudson, Randy Lubin, Mike Masnick, Ross Pruden, N. R. M. Roshak, Holly Schofield, and James Yu.
The importance of protesters cannot be understated. America is a nation born of protester.
To that fact we owe our soul, be it the Abolitionist, the Suffragettes the Civil Rights Marcher, the, Pink Pussy Hats, or the Black Lives Matter Stalwarts.
The true conscience of America is demonstrated by these heroes.
They are the power that moves the line and eventually pushes our country across it to achieve moral victories.
This book is dedicated to them, about them, and because without them, we would be less.
Cupid becomes a vigilante.
Santa grants deadly wishes.
And that is just the beginning of your journey into alternative visions of the holidays we know, love, and sometimes fear.
So be prepared.
Look! There on the field! Does that little girl stand a chance against the ghosts of a town's unspoken past?
What did you find there in the ground, Robin, beneath your shovel blade? Could it be the answer to everything you've ever wanted?
From deserted islands to an isolated cabin in the Carolina woods, from an Arizona film set to a small Mexican town, from a bloody riverbank in Vietnam to the coal-choked streets of Cheapside, the Stories We Tell After Midnight series has invited the reader into a world of shadows almost forgotten by the cold glare of the modern world. This, the third and final volume of the series, offers up more tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the false light of redemption—but only to those who once more dare turn the page.
