Short Version: A collection of 16 Single Page Stories using titles based on anagrams of "social distancing" as writing prompts. Long Version: I arrived in Canada to visit my mom on March 11, 2020. Then the border with the US closed because of the coronavirus (COVID-19). I had no idea when I'd be able to go home to Texas and needed a Project to focus on instead of scrolling through Facebook and reading news headlines. I'd been writing Single Page Stories for over a year, so that's where I started. Each story in this collection is less than 300 words, presented with artwork by Tithi Luadthong, and self-isolates in that it is not related to any of the other stories. None of the stories are specifically about the coronavirus (COVID-19) or the pandemic. Using anagrams of "social distancing" was just a way to create unique writing prompts. These are speculative fiction adventures, ranging from fantasy to science fiction to magical realism. No horror, I promise. To help you get a feel for what's in this book, here are all of the titles and the first sentences of their related story. Some titles remained connected to the final version of the story. Others, not so much.ACING TIDAL SCIONS - Laura flexed her hands, watching through her VR goggles how the gloves of her spacesuit did the same.CALICO DATING SINS - After two attempts to upload his profile picture, Snowball finished his listing on the CatNip app.CASINO ACTS IDLING - Ellis and Cavney stood in the street, taking in the destruction.CLASSIC INDIGO ANT - I thought he was a mannequin dressed in a gas mask and suit of dusk orange with a windowpane pattern.CLINIC GOADS SAINT - Penrose's monitors caught on fire, freaking out the intern.COLD GIN IS IN A CAST - When my desdeer Gin lost one of her hind legs fighting a sand snake, we augmented her other leg instead of putting her down.DANCING TO SILICAS - BreakRod entered the 200th Annual Ten-World Rally in his trusty, rusty minivan.ICONIC DATA SLINGS - Ragner studied the laser net cast through the floating rocks.INACTION GALS DISC - He was stupid and cheated.LACING CANS IDIOTS - "A company man can't understand; always moving colony to colony."SAD ACTING SILICON - "She said I didn't understand her needs."SANCTA LOCI SIDING - George admired the beauty of the cascading water over the broken concrete walls, his phone at his side while his boss cursed the cost of the repairs.SLOGAN IN CACTI IDS - Oliver's family tree was more like an old growth forest, so when he received a package from a Great-Aunt Midge, he opened it.STADIA SONG CLINIC - Reaching the end of the Level 1 course, Cassie's throat burned as if she'd been screaming in the wasteland.STIG SOLIDI CANCAN - If anyone could create a marketing persona for an alien race that the judgmental population of Earth would accept, it was Isaacs.TALONS SIGN ACIDIC - The holographic bird hovered in front of Angie's face.

The Guardian called Warm Bodies 'the zombie novel with a heart'; Audrey Niffenegger said 'Warm Bodies is an unexpected treat', and Stephenie Meyer eagerly looked forward to the next book. Here it is: the prequel to Warm Bodies, released to coincide with the major film adaptation from the producers of Twilight, starring Teresa Palmer and Nicholas Hoult. Julie Grigio drives with her parents through the crumbling wastelands of America - a nightmarish family road trip in search of a new home. A few hundred miles away, Nora Greene finds herself the reluctant, terrified guardian of her younger brother when her parents abandon them in the not-quite-empty ruins of Seattle. In the darkness of a forest, a dead man in a red tie opens his eyes. With no memory of who or what he is, he must unravel the grim mystery of his existence - right after he learns how to think, how to walk, and how to satisfy the monster howling in his belly... Two warped families and a lonely monster. Unknown to any of them, their paths are set to cross in a startling encounter that will change the course of their lives - or deaths - forever.
