Peter Carlaftes and Alison Gaylin The Faking of the President

A literary coup d'etat, that ponders "What would the White House be like if U.S. Presidents of the past were not restricted by the time-honored hallmarks and traditional behavior of the office, leaving them free to do whatever they wanted, anytime and anywhere?" THE FAKING OF THE PRESIDENT: Nineteen Stories of White House Noir pulls back the curtain on the “new norm” for America’s highest office, with a collection of bizarre new stories by a diverse group of renowned authors that take readers across the chasm of reality into an alternate universe―where Nixon takes a wacky psychedelic trip with Elvis Presley; where a time-traveling renegade targets members of the George Bush administration with disastrous results; where a spy seizes a sudden opportunity for power after Woodrow Wilson’s stroke. The stories are outlandish but―when it comes to the White House of today―no longer implausible.

The line-up of award-winning authors includes Eric BeetnerPeter CarlaftesSarah M. ChenAngel Luis ColónS. A. CosbyNikki DolsonMary Anna EvansAdam Lance GarciaDanny GardnerAlison GaylinChristopher ChambersKate FloraGreg HerrenGary PhillipsAlex SeguraTravis RichardsonS. J. RozanAbby Vandiver, and Erica Wright.

In an era where the bar for what is acceptable has shifted beyond what the founding fathers ever imagined, THE FAKING OF THE PRESIDENT is a highly recommended unique creative act of resistance, and a must-have for fans of politics, noir, and speculative fiction.
