Our Second Civil War was over in minutes - while the conflict took decades. As in all wars, both sides lost heavily and then proclaimed victory. I knew this all too well, serving as a paramedic to patch up their wounded and dying. I´d gotten myself into ´Cagga to solve my nightmares. After I´d sworn off coming back into the cities where the only real violence happened. She was in my dreams every night, and turned them into the same hell on earth she was experiencing. Because she only wanted to be rescued from a fate and destiny she could not control. In the old days, it was called human trafficking, but in our time it was called normal. Just because she was pretty, single, and defenseless. And once I found her, we´d only have until sundown... Excerpt : I could hear her scream in my dreams. Every night. Who she was and how to find her was a mystery. But I knew I had to try. Or the dreams would never let me sleep normal again. Not that it was going to be easy. Ever since the Great Secession, it was nearly impossible to get people into (or out of) the big city areas. You could get news out of their jammed ´´acronym media networks´´ easier. But ´Cagga was less impossible than most. And that was where my dreams told me to search first. I was here to get those dreams out of my sleep. I´d been called many times, for many things, but this was the most annoying one I´d ever had to live. Not that you´d call it living. Because sleep was one continuing nightmare for me. Not really a lot of sleep, just a lot of waking in a cold sweat, plus a lot of tossing and turning. I even had to get my own room because of all the yelling I´d do. So going to ´Cagga was for my own survival, as well as anyone around me. Lots of smiles got me through their gates. They didn´t want to shake my hand, but waved me through from behind their glass guard booth. Us ´´unclean´´ were only going to another slightly less unclean space - where the guards never went. Just to find this woman or girl or whoever is keeping me awake at night. She was in here somewhere. I hoped.
A first collection of short stories from C. C. Brower In addition to her longer novellas and novels, Brower started out with short stories. Contemporary, Fantasy, Science Fiction - 13 wonderful worlds from a different view of life. New ways to look at the world you live in, and ask yourself ´´what if´´ things were different... This anthology contains: The Caretaker When The Wild Calls Mind Timing Becoming Michelle When the Cities Died, I Danced Snow Gift Mr. Ben´s Rail Road The War Bringeth Peace: Forever War Snow Cave Vacation Amok The Emperor´s Scribe A Long Wait for Santa Note: Mind Timing and Becoming Michelle were co-authored with R. L. Saunders Excerpt from Mind TIming: When the last of the long-languishing news media died, it was with barely a whimper. No bang. Not even a sullen pop. And eyes were dry all around. No one mourned, few even noticed. Two glasses clinked at the Club in celebration. And that was all the wake they deserved. I and my visitor-turned-conspirator were the only witnesses. To the end of a global war that now never happened. - - - - He had entered uninvited and unwelcomed that first day, long ago. It´s not that women couldn´t have male visitors at the Club. As long as they were properly chaperoned or in the very public areas. But in those days, and by that time, no one expected that a white male presented any challenge or hazard. Women ran politics, they ran business, they ran the world. Women scientists explored the known universe and profited from their discoveries. ´´Mari, a man is here to see you.´´ The female maitre d´ at my elbow quietly announced. This interrupted my news scanning, but was cautiously done. Alarmed Club members could get a bit defensive. And in these days, that could be dangerous to other Club patrons. I sensed this as something unique, something out of the usual, the humdrum. It was actually a change I had been praying for. So when that lone white male called at the all-female Club and asked for me by name, I accepted. He was shown to the middle of the main lounge, where two overstuffed chairs sat separated by a small side table. A distance surrounding them for room to move in case anything untoward developed. While such a visit took time away from my scheduled daily poker game. I was tired of the usual bitching banter that accompanied each hand as we all knew the other´s tells and bluffs. It was time for new blood. Or a new game...
Imagine as a parent trying to explain to your daughter that she is in danger, and you cannot guarantee her safety. In Canada, while overall crime is at an all-time low, indigenous women and girls are more likely to be victims of violence, more likely to disappear, and more likely to be murdered by a serial killer than their nonindigenous counterparts. In recent months one only has to turn on the news or open any social media site to hear about the national crisis Canada is facing with missing and murdered indigenous women. However, this was not always the case. For decades it has been Canada´s dirty little secret. But the horrific murders of Loretta Saunders and Tina Fontaine in 2014 made headlines across Canada, ignited widespread outrage, and brought the crisis to the general public´s eyes and ears. So why is the level of violence toward indigenous women reaching crisis levels? There is no easy answer to that question. On a general level, centuries of discrimination, along with the effects of the residential school era and many other government policies, have led to systemic racism toward indigenous people. Attempts at genocide didn´t cease centuries ago, like many believe. They just became more subtle. Invisible Victims is a shocking work that shines a spotlight on this national crisis and its root causes. It includes several specific cases and a review of the serial killers who have specifically targeted indigenous women and girls as a result of the apathy of Canada´s law enforcement, media, and government. 1.
