Summary

Selena Chambers’ debut collection guides readers out of space and time and through genre and mythos to explore the micro-cosmic horrors of identity, existence, and will in the face of the world’s adamant calls for submission. 
Victorian tourists take a virtual trip through their (and the Ottoman empire’s) ideal Orient; a teenage girl learns about independence and battle of the bands, all while caring for her mesmerized, dead mother; a failed Beat poet goes over the edge while exploring the long-abandoned Government Lethal Chambers. 
Visceral, evocative, and with a distinct style that is both vintage and fresh, Calls for Submission introduces a glowing, new writer of the weird and strange.

    Seven fantastic tales of wild futures, strange visions, and unexpected comings-of-age, by the acclaimed coauthor of the bestselling Pern novelsNew York Times–bestselling author Todd McCaffrey is proof positive that when it comes to vision, talent, and imagination without boundaries, the apple never falls far from the tree. The son of fantasy fiction legend Anne McCaffrey, as well as her frequent coauthor, he offers up seven captivating tales that run the gamut from science fiction to humor to horror, each one a treasure and a marvel.   With heart, wit, and astonishing invention, Todd McCaffrey carries us away to places we never before dreamed we could go—whether he is chronicling the trials of a young boy with a most unfortunate name or a notorious convict released on parole. He treats us to a wild night in Paris that ends with a bang and introduces us to a talking car that simply will not shut up. With the chilling tale of a famous astronaut’s orphaned daughter, whose search for an unknown parent leads her to dark places, the strange yarn of a moon child and her very special tree, and the heartfelt story of a child burdened with soul-crushing responsibilities and the remarkable answer to his prayers, Todd McCaffrey shows himself to be a peerless storyteller whose short works of fiction are as exhilarating and powerful as his novels.
