Cower below wind-turbine angels, meet Yesterday in a soda shop, and hear Satan's beguiling small-town sermon: hell is real, and it's right here. In a collection of 70 works of poetry and short fiction, HELL IS REAL captures the unique terrors of the American Midwest. Its overwhelmingly queer authorship finds the sin hiding under highways—between pews—under corn-roots—on a gas station shelf—and holds it up for all to see in this love-hate letter to the heartland. Includes works by A.Z. Louise, Adrian Dallas Frandle, Alana Greene, A’liya Spinner, Amanda Minkkinen, Andrea Lianne Grabowski, Andrew McSorley, Anthony Clemons, Audrey R.
