“Trump is America’s Caesar; who will be Virgil? Will I be the American Virgil? Which of the myths I’ve made will become part of the very fabric of America the Empire? HOW WILL TRUMP END?”
Donald Trump. Whether you love him or loathe him, there’s no denying that Trump’s presidency has profoundly changed America—and the world—in every conceivable way. But Trump’s term in office, like all things, will eventually be over. Will he retire quietly? Go out in a blaze of glory? Get a second term? How will Trump end?
Ending Bigly: The Many Fates of Donald Trump is a literary anthology that attempts to answer that question. Edited by Canadian author Bill Marchant and featuring over two dozen short stories, poems, essays, and more, Ending Bigly is a comedic and incisive work that offers a glimpse at the post-Trump future. The book includes contributions from some of the finest literary minds of our age, including Bronze Age Pervert, Nick B. Steves, Gio Penn, Faisal Marzipan, Mencius Moldbugman, and many others.
“Ending Bigly is a dizzying mélange of speculative hyperfiction, satirical future-histories, and surreal Great Man theorizing, postcards from the underbelly of the gilded beast that is Trump’s America, the demented offspring of Philip K. Dick, J.G. Ballard, and Thomas Carlyle.” — Blauergeist, author of “The Call of the Void”
“This collection is a surprise, and a welcome one, much like Trump’s presidency itself. In our social media goldfish minds, we may soon find ourselves wondering if Trump was ever president at all. That’s been debunked, they’ll say. Hillary was president from 2016 to 2020, then Biden. The stories in this collection are all true, as true as anything, truer than true. But no matter what fake news they publish, I won’t forget you, Donny, the first and last president of online.” — Zero HP Lovecraft, author of The Gig Economy and God-Shaped Hole
