“Rumpelstiltskin” by Jeff Wood gets to the point quickly and is a fantastic addition to this anthology as it gets the point across that women should not be treated as breeding stock.

A WOMAN UNBECOMING
Edited by Rachel A Brune and Carol Gyzander
Cover: Lynne Hansen
A charity anthology to benefit reproductive healthcare rights, especially for those with a uterus. This anthology is full of stories that are horror with a message. Think — CM Harris’s “A Woman Unbecoming” (originally in Coppice & Brake, reprinted in this volume), Suzy McKee’s “Boobs”, even SK’s Carrie—if the audience is cheering for Carrie instead of fearing her. As feminist, pro-queer, anti-patriarchy as we could get! Not just in story theme, but also in the authors themselves.
This is a Charity Anthology. Money made will become donations. We will split donations 50/50 between two charities that support reproductive health services.
And now… The moment you all have been waiting for!

“I think writers are always collecting experiences that we draw from when the time is right. For this story, it was the pandemic–watching people struggle with isolation and adapting communication, that was the catalyst. In other words, I blame Zoom.” ~Cristel Orrand, “M.O.U.T.H. Piece”
“…horror fiction (and games) gives us a way to deal with real horrors — horrors that can often seem unmanageable, un-understandable, and unconquerable.”
