Unicorn Wasteland by Emma Alice Johnson (ebook)
In Unicorn Wasteland, Emma Alice Johnson’s protagonist, Maria rides into the story on a unicorn, dragging behind her a wooden coffin, the contents of which are not revealed to the reader, but which she guards with her life from the terrors of the hostile world around. This is a novella that uses genre fiction elements from low-budget Western movies, fantasy novels, and science fiction monsters to tell a story about a trans woman confronting her own identity to deliver a message to her mother that she’s waited a long time to tell.
Emma Alice Johnson lives in the woods where she grows wildflowers and talks to bees and butterflies. Sometimes she also writes.
Unicorn Wasteland is also available in print.
