“Hardcore-clean writing delivered at warp speed.” –Andrew Vachss

Thomas Pluck writes unflinching fiction with heart. He is the author of Blade of Dishonor, Steel Heart: 10 Tales of Crime and Suspense, and he is the editor of the Lost Children charity anthologies, which benefit PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children. He hosts Noir at the Bar in Manhattan, and is the Social Media Editor for PROTECT.

The newest anthology to benefit PROTECT is 600+ pages of fiction from legends such as Harlan Ellison, Joyce Carol Oates, David Morrell, Andrew Vachss, and Joe R. Lansdale; rising stars like Hilary Davidson, Laird Barron, and Joelle Charbonneau, and new fiction from emerging talents. Spanning all genres and including a personal essay from Alison Arngrim, this collection truly has something for everyone, and all proceeds go to PROTECT to fight online predators and fund the fight against the sexual, emotional, and physical abuse of children.
