Hair Lit, Vol. 1 is the latest release from Chicago's Orange Alert Press. A collection of original short fiction based on hair metal songs of the 1980's and 1990's, Hair Lit, Vol. 1 is edited by Nick Ostdick and features contributions from today's hottest purveyors of short fiction, including Sherrie Flick, Ryan W. Bradley, Roxane Gay, Chip Cheek, Matt Rowan, Aubrey Hirsch, Adam Schuitema, Megan Stielstra, Shawn Andrew Mitchell, Lindsay Hunter, Michael Czyzniejewski, Susannah Felts, BJ Hollars, Leni Zumas, Ben Tanzer, Steve Himmer, Nick Ostdick, Sam Weller, Kyle Beachy, and Tobias Carroll.
That's right, folks, the songs you craved from the bands you loved are paid tribute in this collection that rocks as hard as the music that inspired them. These are stories of love and heartache. Stories of sex and drugs. Stories of misspent youth. Stories of tumultuous adulthood, all set to a killer soundtrack consisting of bands like Warrant, Poison, Twisted Sister, Judas Priest, Vixen, KISS, and more. It's a best-of-album-in-stories that shines a spotlight on an often overlooked period of rock music from an eclectic group of young writers who honor the source material in superb fashion, big hair and all.
Your contribution will help Orange Alert Press produce the first run of the collection in an edition of 500 copies. We could not be more grateful and we thank you for taking the time to check us out. Now, let's get rockin.'
