Over the course of two years, the 2nd Friday Writers created, discussed, revised, and completed this short story anthology, Modern Metamorphoses. The stories of transformation are set in San Diego, Hawaii, Europe, and the twilight zone of a disturbing future or alternative reality. The characters created by Andrea Carter, Lina Karoline Castillo, Tina Childers, V. A. Christie, Cornelia Feye, Max Feye, Jennifer M. Franks, Valerie Hansen, Suzanne Haworth, Ladan Murphy, Jennifer Pun, Tabatha Tovar range from super cats to bionic dolphins and magic frogs. They include dysfunctional family members and the greatest flamenco guitarist of all times, as well as some surprisingly sympathetic ghosts, ghouls, vampires, and zombies. Transformation is not only possible, it’s inevitable.
