Tales of Repression, Restriction, and Rebellion

Release date: December 18, 2019

Throughout recorded history, there have been rules and regulations, customs and traditions. Some have been libertine while others oppressive; the morally strict and the sinfully decadent. There have always been those who impose the law, and those who reject it. Wherever there is civilization, there are things that are Forbidden!

Forbidden is an anthology about that which is disallowed, whether it be the law or custom of a society, a particular group, or even just a single individual. Stories that illustrate the sense or insanity of that which is disallowed, all with an eye on adventure, world-building, and thought-provoking entertainment!

From the distant past to the far future, explore 17 stories of individuals inventing, partaking in, or resisting that which is Forbidden!
