FEAR is here! In this first issue of Inaccurate Realities, a journal of YA speculative fiction, you'll find five stories related to the theme of fear, including "The Usual," a story about a 16-year-old girl named Callie who has grown up in a society where, about fifty years ago, someone invented the perfect haircut, and now everyone except people with deformities and anti-conformists get nothing except The Usual Haircut. But Callie has lost a bet and must ask for something different. It's a story about social norms, how people enforce them, and fear of people who break them.

PLUS the issue includes interviews with authors Gretchen McNeil (3:59, Ten), Kendare Blake (Anna Dressed in Blood, Antigoddess) and Katie Alender (Bad Girls Don’t Die, Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer) and reviews of A Midsummer Night’s Scream by R. L. Stine, Asylum by Madeleine Roux and Unbreakable by Kami Garcia.

A print copy of this issue can be yours for $7.50. An electronic version for your e-reader or in PDF format is only $3.50. Click here to find the purchase links on the Inaccurate Realities website. And tell your YA-loving friends!
