Ten Threads by Richard R Becker
An Idaho farmer who earns a second chance at life finds that the past has a hard time letting him go. A young girl navigates funeral-goers, family, and the unusual circumstances of her grandmother’s death in Pennsylvania. A risk-averse young man must make a bold move after stumbling into a nightmarish government biohazard. An aging alcoholic vigilante is asked to find common ground with a teenager in a secret witness protection program.
These and six more short stories continue and intersect with 50 States, the debut anthology that surprised readers with 50 thought-provoking stories across different genres. Together, these new stories stand on their own and expand upon a growing body of work that takes place across the American landscape.
Ten Threads is a brisk 125-page companion to Richard R. Becker’s award-winning debut, 50 States. It is presented as a Kindle exclusive, a glimpse into his next anthology and future novel.
