Black Denim Lit is a monthly journal of fiction available on the web and on all eReaders for free through BlackDenimLit.com. This month Christopher T. Garry brings together sixty pages of bold, intriguing new fiction from Ted Morrissey, Sean Monaghan and David W. Landrum. All the authors expand significantly on their work with dark, speculative tales to give immersive looks into hearts of men and women facing a changing world.
“The authors are at their best here,” Garry said. “It’s been a real pleasure to work with them to bring this edition together. I couldn't be more honored and inspired by their thoughtful work.”
Landrum starts off with “The Way to Shangri-La,” which tells of an East Indian woman’s decade-long epic tale of transcendence. Morrissey offers, “Scent of Darkness,” a woman’s journey through an inner world mixing solitude and nightmare. And finally, Monaghan offers “800,”a brief look at parenting in the future where social norms have become twisted by the success of longevity.
