“It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.”

If your idea of a decent bedtime story is a tale of a terrible future, then stop on over at The Bees Are Dead.  We’ve got some wonderful dystopian poetry, prose and photography, thanks to a diverse group of truly talented contributors.  There are some unsettling visions, but you won’t be sorry you visited.

Today’s feature was “The Red Dream” (“красная мечта,”)  a haunting photographic composition by Ekaterine Dovzhenko depicting former Soviet states.  Be sure also to read “Homeland,” Robert Borski’s superb, psychedelic riff of L. Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz.”
