From the beginning of time, people have loved stories. And novelists have loved trying their hand at writing them. Short stories are their own art form, and have their own beauty and even their own challenges. It's a rewarding art form for both reader and writer.
Dead Key Publishing is proud to announce the release of its second annual anthology of short stories by the writers in its catalog. The stories range in length from short-short to almost novella, and range in type from literary to science fiction to men's, women's and mainstream. A collection as diverse as Dead Key's catalog.
Inside the anthology, meet the last baby born legally in America and the illegals born in defiance of Reproduction Law; fall in love (again) in the car of a Ferris wheel; explore marriage, family life and body image; watch a paid assassin at work; walk the line between guilt and mental illness; discover what it means to be human—and robotic; find a bookkeeper's re-discovered life, a family who takes parenting a little too far, and a man longing to be re-discovered by his amnesia-affected wife.
What you will also find are stories you won't want to leave, characters you love and maybe some you hate, and we hope that will lead you to read more of our Dead Keyers' works.

About the Author
A dead key is the key on a typewriter used so the carriage doesn't advance, creating a unique character that is not visible on a traditional keyboard. When struck alone, it produces nothing. But working in conjunction with another key, it produces a distinctive character. Unpublished works are like dead keys. It is not until we bring the work to publishing in order to be shared that something special is created. At Dead Key Publishing, our passion is to be the next key.
