Aftermath: Explorations of Loss & Grief is an anthology that weaves together a broad collection of voices to illustrate the many forms of loss. The topics range from the inevitable breakdown of a relationship to an immigrant family struggling to retain their culture as they attempt to assimilate. In their interpretation of the book's theme, the selected stories run the spectrum from heartfelt, raw, and powerful to lighter and humorous. This body of work reveals how, despite the differences of our day-to-day lives, we are all connected.

Radix Media publishes stories that reflect our varied experiences to build a platform for voices that often go unheard. We share work that explores the nuances of life and asks readers to step outside of their own perspective. We prioritize the voices of marginalized communities because of our commitment to building a more just world.
