If you’re reading this then that means a vast nuclear arsenal is now in the tiny hands of a rancid circus peanut. Good times. Thankfully, in response to the orange menace, we here at The Molotov Cocktail believe in channeling doomsday angst into some dark and offbeat art. We’re always pleased to be transported to the strange and surreal places that you writers take us, and this contest you’ve really outdone yourselves. Another strong global turnout, with our Top 10 featuring four writers living in the US, three in the UK, two in Canada and one in Japan.
Assuming the world’s still spinning this fall, these stories will all be featured in our third annual Prize Winners Anthology print issue. You can grab our recently released Vol. 2 here. A great way to stave off madness while in quarantine or confined to a subterranean bunker.
