In 2014 and 2015, “Alex Flynn” wrote two books in The Misshapes series for publishing start-up Polis Books. The series went into several printings and ended on a cliffhanger. The books should be judged by the covers (and the covers are awesome). The themes that were in book 2, creepily, came to pass in the U.S., and Alex Flynn was too spooked to finish Misshapes 3.
