- Forging Freedom Volume II
Whether we struggle against an external oppressor or battle our mind for control, humans desire freedom. In Forging Freedom Volume 2, nineteen authors examine freedom—and the situations that threaten it. Some of the stories are true, based on experience or history handed down through the generations. Others are imagined—mere stretches of reality and the ways it might be pulled away from freedom. This eclectic mix of freedom-themed stories covers the spectrum, including such ideas as longing for one’s native land, earning communal grading, being forced to donate an organ, battling mental illness, and fighting for the right to give birth to a child regardless of its genetics. (Guess which story is mine. :)) You can buy from Freedom Forge Press here.
