Each year we hand-pick 50 of today's top indie authors and ask them to submit a story. Then we ask a team of ruthless judges to scour that ore and pick out the gems. The result is All These Shiny Worlds II:
* a world of today where cosplay and stagecraft are bright lights hiding dark shadows
* a world of tomorrow, where kitchen appliances fend for themselves and take solace in each other's arms, refugees from indifferent owners
* a world of little cogs in big machines, where the humble trash collector is the unsung hero of getting evil done
* a world of small magics and big hearts, where a little chaos can go a long, long way
From the brutal curators at ImmerseOrDie.com comes another collection of indie short stories, each a distinct jewel forged in the fires of judgment, and all continuing to carry our one simple promise:
Guaranteed not to suck.
