The resulting eight-page stories in the anthology range from the story of Hazel Fellows, the woman who led a team of women responsible for making the spacesuits for NASA’s Apollo program, to “a dark horror story about a supernatural being who causes the little things in life that have catastrophic, life-changing effects.” You can read more information about each short story here, and purchase a print or digital copy of the anthology here.
