Stories from the Border
*Alex Segura's story 90 Miles has been selected to be included in the 2021 edition of THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY AND SUSPENSE* and is a 2021 Anthony Award nominee
A collection of original and riveting stories that tackle one of the most important and controversial issues of time: The Border. La frontera is full of stories. Real stories, not the ones you see in the news. The border is a powerful place where countries collide. It's a weird space of dreams, struggles, promises, lies, fear, and redemption. It's a multicultural and bilingual space where people know that hustling to protect your loved ones or offer them a better life is a drive strong enough to blur ethical codes. Sadly, the border is also a place where drugs make people a lot of money, corruption stains everything, and violence fills the landscape with danger and ghosts. Now, some of today's most talented authors will visit this space from their perspective--showing the world what they see on both sides. In a landmark anthology, acclaimed author Gabino Iglesias presents 15 stories from an incredibly talented and diverse roster of authors that look at all aspects of border crime--immigration, law, trafficking (both human and narcotics), and everyone trying to exploit the divide for their own benefit. Thought-provoking, shocking, violent, raw, emotional, and unforgettable, BOTH SIDES will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about borders, both domestic and international. Featuring stories by: Isaac Kirkman, Shannon Kirk, Alex Segura, Rob Hart, Nicol's Obreg n, J. Todd Scott, Christopher David Rosales, Daniel A. Olivas, Cynthia Pelayo, Johnny Shaw, Rios de la Luz, Sandra Jackson-Opoku, Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason, Nick Mamatas, and David Bowles.
