Fiction. AN AGE OF MONSTERS is the first prose collection by William Taylor Jr. The book features fifteen short stories by Taylor, plus photography by Julie Michelle. "William Taylor Jr: What would you do if you were trapped in a cage? Hiss at the monsters outside, stained in your own piss and stink? And what would you dream about, should you get out? Maybe plot revenge on a lover. Maybe kill a man over $400 and a stupid insult. And what about all those other people on the outside: drunken clowns and murderous four year olds; wannabe artists and crazies in trains? Maybe, just maybe, when someone finally did open that door to let you out, you would just sniff the air, shake, then cower back into the farthest corner of your cell, listening to all the other prisoners, wailing and crying in theirs."—R L Raymond
