As we noted earlier this summer, the project was designed to provide for a break from the ongoing attention we have given towards COVID-19. 

The call from Muskeg Press publisher Chris Armstrong for submissions bringing in over 700 manuscripts to consider, making for a challenging task to pare the list down to the ten finalists.

The pre-order for the book is available from the Muskeg Press website, the big reveal for the compilation of stories comes next month.
