Auguries of Desolation

Mengert’s best stories of the year. In 2019, Blue Forge Press selected nine authors and sent them monthly writing prompts for one year. They were radically diverse people in terms of experience, style, ideology, class, politics, race, sexuality, and religion, but they all gave a year of their creative lives to craft their best work. Starting with the title itself, transgender author and activist, Sheila Mengert, sets the tone for the collection’s diverse set of characters, each balanced along the precarious edge where fate and personality combine to forge a destiny. With what now seems like uncanny foresight, Mengert conveys the mood of anxiety and perplexity that accompany the tremors that rumble just beneath the surface of daily life when great events are about to take place... like the unprecedented year that followed 2019. Blue Forge Press used a light editorial hand to allow the writer’s voice to be heard in its original state: Undiluted, unaltered, and raw. Auguries of Desolation collects all twelve stories written by Sheila Mengert plus an extensive interview and a thirteenth bonus story written in 2020. Discover all nine authors in Trinity Winter, Trinity Spring, Trinity Summer, Trinity Autumn, and The Trinity Guidebook for all one hundred seventeen stories.
