Inner Workings: mental fragility and resilience in the outer spaces

Metaphorosis Magazine

From the Metaphorosis Library Collection, an anthology of science fiction and fantasy stories by authors coping with mental health challenges. These are not necessarily stories about mental health, but stories by authors whose challenges inform their writing.

Life can be hard enough sometimes, without loading on experiences that many others don't even understand. But per aspera ad astra, as the saying goes. These are stories by authors who've dealt with emotional, mental, or psychological concerns and whose lives and writing are richer for what they've learned.

This collection of 16 stories is drawn from Metaphorosis magazine's first nine years of publication. They include stories of hair that holds memories, a planet that's finally had enough of humans, drugs that make you sad, and a whole new way of applying to college by grappling iron, among many other ideas!
