It's so exciting to be able to share with everyone!

It's the official cover reveal of Big Imagine's first book, "Living Things: Short Tales of Science Fiction and Dystopia."

Now available for pre-order on Amazon! https://amzn.to/2IIohuG

Let’s face it: mankind hasn’t earned any trophies for planning ahead. In Living Things by Jackie Gamber, the future isn't looking much better. Microchipped zombies. VR game escapism. Intergalactic bride exchanges. These science fiction and dystopian short stories are a raw and surprising collection about human beings-and not-so-human beings-trying to live and love among the ruins.

Rethinking “outrageous”

Betty once called me outrageous. We had been wise-cracking, and I said something funny and off-the-cuff, and she laughed, and looked at me with warm, happy eyes, and said, "Jackie, you are outrageous." It set me back at the time. To me, "outrageous" was a terrible insult. It was one of those words that described the parts of me I've always tried very hard to suffocate. [ 207 more words ]
