Book Synopsis

Life can kick us when we are down.

In Shawn Speakman's case he is fighting back.

Lacking health insurance when diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2011, Speakman beat the disease as well as the massive medical debt he amassed during treatment. He did this by publishing Unfettered, an anthology featuring short stories donated by some of the best science fiction and fantasy writers working today.

The fight does not stop there. In an effort to pay forward the aid he received—and also to memorialize his mother, who passed away from stomach cancer in 2016—Speakman has again collaborated with celebrated genre authors to publish Unfettered II. All proceeds from the anthology will help alleviate medical debt for authors in need and fund cancer research.

Twenty new tales comprise this amazing collection and, as the title suggests, New York Times best-selling authors and talented newcomers alike were invited to contribute whatever story they wished.

Unfettered II is a fantastic sequel anthology, but it is more than that: it is proof that we are stronger together than we are apart.

After all, isn't that what genre fiction is all about?
