In Your Face = Trigger Warnings

This book contains twenty-two original and reprinted speculative fiction stories dealing with provocative themes. These stories are confronting, but with a firm purpose. They will make you uncomfortable, because they are a bit too hard-hitting or close to the bone. But they will also challenge you, by interrogating these themes and ideas to make a point about the world we live in.
