About the Anthology

And if that mockingbird don’t sing: Parenting Stories Gone Speculative

75 stories by 76 writers. The strange, the sad, the fearful, the wild: narratives of parenting that you won’t find in any advice column or Mother’s Day card.

Including work by noted authors Aubrey Hirsch, Kendra Fortmeyer, Meg Pokrass, Tara Campbell, and more.
