Welcome to Infinite Monkeys: Stories of Redemption. This is an anthology of short stories by author members of the Pledge, the writing group associated with the Illinois::Naperville region of National Novel Writing Month.
What do you do for an encore after completing your novel for National Novel Writing Month? At the end of 2008, twelve aspiring novelists came together in a group called The Pledge to hone their writing skills. Together they decided to write a short story anthology.
There is an infinite monkey theorem that says that "a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare" [Wikipedia]. If monkeys could produce Shakespeare, the novelists believed they could produce a short story anthology; and so the title "Infinite Monkeys" was born.
What is in this book, however, has nothing to do with monkeys, infinite or otherwise. Each story in this book explores themes of redemption. The stories traverse different genres and moods, ranging from light humor to dark mystery.
