Rhonda Parrish

Author Rhonda Parrishabout this anthology: I'd long wanted to edit an anthology of speculative fiction dealing with the idea of cancer but it wasn't until my mother died of the disease that I got off my butt and actually got to work on this anthology. It was a very personal, emotional endeavor for me.

"Walk with us." -Jay Lake

Walk with us as we explore the world of cancer as seen through a speculative lens. Hold our hands while we venture into the world of what ifs. Take a journey at our side as we experience the full spectrum of what cancer has to offer. The light, the darkness.

Within these pages you'll meet a woman who adores her cancer as a lover, another who sees it as her ticket to immortality. We'll meet a boy willing to do anything to save his mother and another with superpowers. There's a witch who uses magic to fight against the beast ravaging her friend's body, a cat whose capacity for love is unparalleled, a damaged musician, aliens, a goddess butterfly and so much more.

These are not easy stories to read. This is not a comforting collection that will wipe your fears away and make everything all right. It's not that kind of book. These stories will make you cry, but they'll also make you laugh. They'll touch you and stir emotions, some of which you might not like, but that's okay. It really is. These stories aren't all fun, but they are important. All of them.

Cancer scares us. There is so much we don't know about it, but it's out there, waiting to strike. This anthology attempts to strike back. To support research that will develop new treatments and, eventually, a cure.

62% of the proceeds of this anthology are being donated to help benefit Cancer research.
