Lock & Load: Armed Fiction

Lock & Load: Armed Fiction examines the use of guns in literary fiction. Deirdra McAfee and I conceived the book to spark reasonable conversation on a subject so politicized that it’s become almost impossible to discuss. Lock & Load is also unique in being the only such collection edited by women; women also wrote more than half the book’s “gun stories.”
