Welcome everyone, I’m The Li-Bury-An, and today we have a spotlight on J Snow
Brandon Scott has praised J Snow to me many times. So when I actually became acquainted with her, I felt as if I already knew her. I had no doubt in my mind that she would submit an excellent story for The One That Got Away– what I didn’t expect was that I’d receive literary gold. Her story, “Dear Meat,” is an epic, almost novella length, and reads like a movie. That is, the vivid detail in each scene will stand out in your mind as clearly as if you had stepped inside the pages into her snow-capped, post-apocalyptic world. Due to wide-spread famine, the government has decreed that familes must make certain sacrifices in order to feed themselves. What ensues is something I’ve described as “The Hunger Games meets Soylent Green, dialed up to 100!”
“The cold stretches thin the skin of her face like cracked leather. The wind twists around her, licks her core, her bones. She prefers the darkness of the shadow-cloaked woodlands over dayshine, even when sheathed in ice. Tonight it might save her life.From “Dear Meat” by J Snow
