Why is everything and everyone out to get you? Paranoid? Or just realistic?
Third Flatiron Publishing presents ''Universe Horribilis,'' a new anthology of science fiction short stories by an international group of award-winning and emerging writers, who offer their speculative takes on the theme of a hostile or uncaring universe.
