Core Truths is Lisa Fox's debut collection of 18 speculative short stories that explore the quintessential values driving our thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Each tale culminates in a character's pivotal moment, the one that changes them forever. Sometimes their journey leads toward a rare epiphany or a beautiful resolution. But not every ending is happy.


This assortment of science fiction, fantasy, and horror features robots and androids, biologists and metallurgists. Witches, vampires, sea elves and other mythical creatures traverse these pages along with ordinary humans living under extraordinary circumstances.


All the characters in this collection confront hard truths. When a father and son encounter someone forbidden to exist, they must decide whether extending a kindness is worth risking their lives. Hand-picked by her deceased father to undertake an impossible mission, a young girl realizes that sometimes to be a hero, one needs to be a villain. A scientist from a dying planet is forced to weigh the value of one individual life against the lives of many; a scientist from Philadelphia finds his sanity challenged upon making a remarkable discovery. An ancient being questions the validity of doctrine. A clone questions what it means to be human.


As speculative literary fiction, these narratives glean their energy from the fantastical. Written to shine a light on the world, each story in this anthology is intended to make us think about who we are as people, about those Core Truths that govern the lives we choose to live.
