Although this is billed as a contemporary alternative history crime tale, the theme is about human trafficking and exploitation, which is all too real.

THE SEEDS OF THE PAST LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR ALTERNATIVE HISTORY CONTEMPORARY CRIME! 

The events that kick off this Rural Noir collection will be key to launching the upcoming present-day WILLOWBROOK MYSTERIES stories, an upcoming project from Shannon Muir set in an alternative modern day history. THE WILLOWBROOK SAGA follows generations of intrigue, mystery, and exploitation. Willowbrook, Washington, was a small community influenced by the arrival of outsiders looking to live a different lifestyle. Over the decades, they took their ways further and further underground while constructing an economy that allowed them to hide in plain sight. Follow the women influenced by the cultural of this fictional small town from pioneer days in the rural Inland Northwest, down to World War II through the 1960s and 1970s and starting to come to a head in the 1990s. This book brings together the previously published BY THE WILLOW BROOK, BEYOND THE WILLOW BROOK, EVERYTHING CHANGES, and DOWN TO THE ROOTS (2012-2015) into a single collection, plus several Willowbrook short stories only previously available in anthologies – “Blurring Lines,” “Built to Be,” “Call to Family, “Enough is Enough,” “New Beginnings,” and “The Lazy D”. THE WILLOWBROOK SAGA is precursor to the modern-day WILLOWBROOK MYSTERIES, starting with the origin in the upcoming  THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF BEST OF THURSDAY THOUGHTS guide. Available now at Kindle, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and iBooks.

OUT OF PRINT ITEMS

FROM EMBY PRESS

Includes Shannon Muir’s story, “Meeting the Monster”.

From the publisher’s description:

It’s out there, hunting in the darkness and no one can stop it. Its tally of victims increases every day the sun rises and when dusk falls, fear pumps through the city’s veins.

It’s in the sky above the buildings, stalking the forests of the parks and slithering through the sewers. The situation is dire and hope is dwindling… It’s too fast, too strong and too smart.

A sudden flash burns across the night sky and figure appears; somebody like us, but not like us. As quickly as it appeared, the figure is gone, searching for the thing, ready to deliver justice. Hope has returned and smiles crack the corners of mouths, because everybody recognizes a superhero and we all know what comes next.

Epic battles will rage, city blocks will be trampled and the Earth will hang in the balance as the ultimate evil is answered by the ultimate good. Who will triumph, nobody knows and the only thing for certain is that they will fight THE GOOD FIGHT!

FROM FOURSIDED MFNA

Includes Shannon Muir’s short story, “Cover Story,” about a reporter of the future going undercover to discover the truth.
