Everyone on the Moon is Essential Personnel
Coming March 1st 2020
by Julian K. Jarboe
In this debut collection of body-horror fairy tales and mid-apocalyptic Catholic cyberpunk, memory and myth, loss and age, these are the tools of storyteller Jarboe, a talent in the field of queer fabulism. Bodily autonomy and transformation, the importance of negative emotions, unhealthy relationships, and bad situations amidst the staggering and urgent question of how build and nurture meaning, love, and safety in a larger world/society that might not be “fixable.”This includes such tales as "The Nothing Spots Where Nobody Wants to Stay" and "The Seed and The Stone" as well as original fiction.
