Urban Pigs Press presents the Hunger anthology, a collection of 23 stories by 23 different authors. From gritty crime, realism, horror and everything in between. All profits will go directly to FIND - Families in Need to help tackle the global issue of hunger.

A collection of stories that are as close to the bone in literary class as they are in their scathing analysis of a broken society. -Stephen J. Golds, author of Say Goodbye When I’m Gone.

Hunger includes LG's short story, "Four".

Put Out the Lights and Cry

What could be more noir than a diner? From the greasy spoon to the gourmet sit-in, these stories show why diners aren’t family friendly. Diners are the place where heists are plotted, bodies get dumped behind, and police are tipped off. These eateries host every crime from domestic disputes and drug deals to premeditated murder and mob mutiny. It's all fluorescent-lit, fly-riddled entertainment to the drunk, recovering, or wish-they-were.

Published by Outcast Press, Put Out the Lights and Cry is edited by Craig Clevenger and includes LG's short story, "Moths".
