Fourteen international authors come together in "It's Come to Our
Attention," from Third Flatiron Anthologies. Their stories scratch
below the surface to unearth a world of hidden gems:
Visit a landfill to hear some real trash talk. Tag along with an alien
agent here to save the earth from his hideout in the insane
asylum. Bust a conspiracy to change the climate via mind control. Form
an unhealthy attachment to your radio. Go down to the basement even
though we told you not to. Decide on the pros and cons of
immortality. Tell a librarian she would look beautiful without her
glasses. Find out what's at the bottom of the wishing well (besides
coins). Indulge in a little illegal but highly satisfying genetic
tinkering. Acknowledge the debt we all owe to French culture.
