Titles By Liam Hogan
Choice is the Soul of Liberty.
Choice is the Heart of our Democracy.
Choice is the bane of autocrats, of theocrats.
Forty-nine years ago, the Supreme Court recognized Choice as a fundamental liberty.
Autocrats and theocrats have been fighting back ever since. With the overturn of Roe v. Wade, they think they have won.
B Cubed Press, in celebration of forty-nine years of Choice, introduces forty-nine stories to show that Choice cannot be eradicated.
It emerges stronger.
People demand Choice, not just in reproductive rights, but in our lives.
So enjoy these forty-nine uplifting works from Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, Jane Yolen,
Jim Wright, Adam-Troy Castro, Samantha Bryant, and more.
Fighting back against the theocratic and political hacks that form the conservative majority of the Supreme Court and have used their bench like a pulpit to force their views on America with the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
This book pokes the bear on this subject with stories of women and men doing the right thing and fighting back. Stories of running from Texas bounty hunters, painful descriptions of the consequences of no more health care clinics, to individual and group rebellion against unbelievable odds.
All of these stories inspired by SCOTUS in pursuit of their goal to appease a truculent religious minority and the politicians they vote for.
These are stories of fighting back, not just fading into oblivion. Of having the audacity to show courage.
When Kansas, in all its red conservative glory, rebuked this assault on Human Rights, I and many of us rejoiced. It exposed the effort to end reproductive rights, to force pregnancy on children, rape victims, and unwilling mothers as the objective of the few to dominate the many.
And we are many.
We are those who believe that the sanctity of our bodies is our own and not the playground of those who would make us extensions of their religious fervor.
We put this book together because it is up to all of us to speak out against oppression of any of us.
We are all victims, today or tomorrow, of the unfettered consequences of the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Failure to fight back on behalf of the women affected today, means no one will be there to fight back tomorrow.
So stand up, speak out, and fight back.
Because Women’s Rights are indeed… Human Rights.
Cupid becomes a vigilante.
Santa grants deadly wishes.
And that is just the beginning of your journey into alternative visions of the holidays we know, love, and sometimes fear.
So be prepared.

Up in the attic, a bedtime story outlives its storyteller.
A city boy visits his country cousins and stumbles on a terrifying family secret.
From a film set in the Arizona desert, to an overgrown rambling old house in the Florida swamps, to the dusty streets of a small Mexican town, the stories in this volume plunge the reader into the shadows of a world almost forgotten by modern fables of cold science and bright sunlight. They are the brushed over voices who call a warning to those who would comfort themselves in the thought that monsters aren’t real, and those things can’t happen here. Stories We Tell After Midnight Volume 2 offers up tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the horror that stalks you just beyond the glow of your cell phone light, but only to those who dare turn the page…

What did you find there in the ground, Robin, beneath your shovel blade? Could it be the answer to everything you've ever wanted?
From deserted islands to an isolated cabin in the Carolina woods, from an Arizona film set to a small Mexican town, from a bloody riverbank in Vietnam to the coal-choked streets of Cheapside, the Stories We Tell After Midnight series has invited the reader into a world of shadows almost forgotten by the cold glare of the modern world. This, the third and final volume of the series, offers up more tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the false light of redemption—but only to those who once more dare turn the page.

Mainstream publishers want all-star lineups. Small press publishers often can’t afford to pay pro rates…and even when they can, the names in the table of contents can be limited by the editor’s reach or effort. Bestselling horror, fantasy, and thriller authors Christopher Golden and James A. Moore knew there had to be a better way. Inspired by the efforts of legendary anthology Charles L. Grant, who helped move so many new writers in the horror community’s conversation, Golden and Moore teamed up with Haverhill House’s Twisted Publishing imprint to create…
THE TWISTED BOOK OF SHADOWS
Determined to pay pro rates, the editors crowdfunded the project, and then put the word out as far and wide as possible, loudly and repeatedly encouraging submissions by diverse voices, and recruiting a stellar editorial committee to read along with them, including Linda A. Addison, Nadia Bulkin, Rachel Autumn Deering, Lamar Giles, KL Pereira, and Lee Thomas.
Out of seven hundred stories received through a blind submission process—none of the editors had any idea who the authors were—nineteen made the final cut. Within these pages you will find the beautifully weird side-by-side with terrifying nightmares, horrifying folklore, and hellish futures. Nineteen unique and haunting tales that truly earned their place in a book entitled…

About the Authors
And while this book explores theology and beliefs, it is written to be kind as well as thoughtful, and at times funny. It will give you belly laughs, but it will also give understanding of the notion of believing. It will remind you that no matter what you believe, we make this journey together.
There are poems by some wonderful modern thinkers including Gwyndyn T. Alexander and Jane Yolen, that will explore the nature of our world.
Essays by David Brin and David Gerrold that explore the nature of why we believe what we do.
And then there are the stories. Funny stories, like First, that explains how Hell got started. Serious stories of redemption, as seen in Izzy Tells no Lies. Stories that explore familiar themes of the trials of Job, as seen by those around him. Questions are raised if we would even recognize a returning messiah after 2000 years of interpretations of the beliefs.
And most important, they are well written with craft and skill that you have come to expect from B Cubed authors.
Nobody can really say.
“Everybody was in a different War. Nobody's War is quite the same as anyone else's.”
These words were from a Vietnam Veteran counselor.
Truer words have never been spoken, so in this book we don't try to answer the question.
Instead we bring you thoughtful stories not only of War, but the people affected, and the aftermath.
In this book you'll find stories of alternative Wars as imagined by 26 authors of speculative fiction. Perhaps some of them will provide some insight into why we keep repeating what simply seems like a really bad idea.
