Christopher Cervelloni’s story “Trucks in Reverse” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 9 June 2017.
“Trucks in Reverse” started with a simple question: Can bad people in one context be great people in another? I have always loved speculative fiction and found it to be the right place to explore this question. Through many drafts, I stayed focused on the idea that people sometimes must do bad things to protect and care for the ones they love. Both Kevin and his father started as people just trying to do the right thing, but what they do for it and where they end up isn’t so easy.
