– Martin Luther King, Jr.Thorn’s short story “Revolution Rise” is part of this justice themed anthology. It’s a near-future, post-apocalyptic tale about a scrappy band of warriors…and fallen angels with burnt wings.The curator of the anthology says:Stars in the Darkness
is a collection of stories about why being just matters, and what the ramifications are for individuals, groups, towns, countries, or even worlds if justice is not expected, encouraged, or enforced.
The seventeen stories cover a wide range, from historical fiction to fantasy to alternate realities. Every tale, whether set in ancient Egypt, in a future where only the rich can afford to increase their children’s intelligence through genetic engineering, or about a man turned into a zombie by accident, sends a message about what matters.
