Some short story collections are eclectic. Some are ambitious. Some are utterly mad. This one is all three.

The Obama Inheritance presented writers with an intriguing hook — conspiracy theories that surrounded the Obama presidency — and offered them the opportunity to let those conspiracies blossom into curious tales of conspiracy-fueled noir.

To give you an example, the very first story in the collection involves Michelle Obama and other tall, successful women engaging in clandestine warfare and blackmail with drug-company CEOs in order to get their prices to drop. Now that is some high-octane creativity at work.

Some of these stories are laugh-out-loud funny, while others are immensely disturbing simply because you know that somewhere, someone actually believes this ridiculousness for real. That’s a humbling and horrifying thought, even as your funny bone and your common sense are entertained.

The Obama Inheritance is a collection that could only exist in the era of Donald Trump, one where even fantasy and sci-fi must bow before the unfettered lunacy of Alex Jones and other conspiracy theorists of his spittle-flecked misinformed ilk. It’s as jaw-dropping as it is headache-inducing.
