Long Division: Stories of Social Decay, Societal Collapse, and Bad Manners
Bad Hand Books

We live in divided times. We’re fueled by misinformation. We retreat inside ideological bubbles. We no longer trust each other. We've forgotten what holds us together. We’re more dangerous than ever.

We’re looking for original stories of transgression, of the mechanisms behind what’s fraying the bonds that bind us.

We want to ask readers to consider what’s worth keeping and what requires smashing to bits. Preference for stories that have a speculative element (horror, fantasy, sci-fi), but it is not 100% necessary.
