Alternative Reads are exactly what they sound like—stories you
won’t find just anywhere. First, we gathered up our boldest authors and told them to write whatever the hell they liked. Their only restrictions were common sense, as defined by the following passage: any subject matter is acceptable except pornography and/or stories promoting cruelty, hate, bigotry, pedophilia,

Review 1: Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road... 4.5 Stars

"This anthology contains some of the creepiest and unusual stories I’ve read in a long time. While a few of the selections seemed out of place either by caliber or by genre, the best works in this anthology truly set the bar for greatness in speculative fiction. As a whole, I rate Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road at four stars and recommend it as a great addition to any speculative fiction library."

I really enjoyed each story and can’t decide which was better. I got started reading and really couldn't stop—wanting to read more or continue on to the next hair-raising stor

“Alternative-Read.com (AR) is a website developed as a vehicle for promoting all comers from the writing world. This collection brings together the Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road, the most dangerous rule-wreckers from Alternative-Read.com who sprang at the chance to create an anthology designed to give the reader “a different kind of reading experience.

And just to make sure that happened, AR took away the rules and let them write whatever the hell they liked. Edited by Sassy Brit and Cla
