CHANNILLO
Trump Utopia or Dystopia Anthology
By JF Garrard + Jen Frankel

Series Description:

Warning! This book is full of alternative facts!

Donald Trump: 45th President of the United States, businessman and television personality, iconoclast and polarizer. This anthology is a time capsule which captures the hopes and fears, thoughts and ideas of writers from all over the world who were asked to share a story in which Trump is the muse. He does not have to be the main character, however, the story must show the type of world which might result from his policies.

The many worlds created includes:

* an app which requires self-sacrifice to prove that one is a true American;
* a wizard who can make dreams come true in exchange for good PR;
* a smart politician who created the wall to stop the zombies;
* Secret Service agents making difficult choices to save America;
* medieval kings demanding loyalty from both men and nature;

. . .along with people trapped in apocalyptic worlds containing vampires, a never ending trivia game show, clones, aliens and more!

Prepare to laugh, cry and become angry enough to fire the people around you (or maybe not)!

Author Bio For Jen Frankel:

Jen is the author of the Blood and Magic series about young heroine Maggie Stuart. The first two books in the series, The Last Rite and The Red Ring, deal with Maggie at ages 13 and 16 respectively. The third (and penultimate), Heaven and Hell, will feature Maggie at age 23, living in Montreal and still struggling with her powers. Her podcast, Jen Frankel Reads Random S#it! is a great resource for all writers. Jen is also an avid screenwriter and an award-winning poet, as well as a great lover of fish, birds, cats, and all other living creatures. She even has a soft spot for human beings, provided they behave at least as well as their pets. jenfrankel.com

Reviews

Creative and delightful... with a wide range of form and tone, fans of
speculative fiction everywhere will find something to enjoy, regardless of their
political affiliations. – M.A. Beattie, PhD (Independent Scholar of Media)

Fiction is never more important than when reality "trumps" it in weirdness. The
Donald as Wizard of Oz, Ivanka branding the moon, an army of DT clones,
and with much more, this anthology of short fiction and poetry will make you
think, make you laugh, and hopefully, help you survive the reign of Trump.
– Rick Searle (Affiliate Scholar of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies and blogger at utopiaordystopia.com)

Essential reading/coping mechanism for The Resistance. —Tara Dublin (@taradublinrocks, Blocked by Trump since August 2015)

In this world of Alternative Facts, I can honestly say I read every word and loved
it more than any book ever. Except the Bible and The Art of the Deal. – Rocky Mountain Mike (HuffPost featured satirist, broadcaster, and musician)
