Before I get there, let me quickly mention that I’m off of social media until Easter, and I’m very busy with moving preparations so there may be less YouTube content coming out. If you need me, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. But to the point:
In short, it’s about the generation of people born in the late 70s through late 80s and their perspectives on the massive gulf between the world they were raised in and prepared for and the world that they inherited after coming of age, especially post 9-11.
The content within the book is drawn from blog posts and stories from the three of us and represents a snapshot of an ongoing conversation about our age cohort in 2020-2021. One of us would write an essay or story, and that would spark discussion in our author community, which would then lead to someone else writing something related, and so on until a sort of sketch of ourselves and our world emerged.
If you are a part of this cohort, there will be things that will undoubtedly resonate with you; if you are not, there are still good stories and opportunities to see what things were like on the other side of the fence – and just why everyone in their 30s seems so morose. I’m personally very fond of the closing piece, Middlebury, and looking back, it is one of my favorite stories that I’ve written.
Also, the Pulp Rock anthology is live, and I’m enjoying the stories by the other authors so far. My physical copy looks great!
Have a great one!
