New Anthologies: “Classics Remixed” – Left Hand Publishers

I have a science fiction story in Left Hand Publishers speculative fiction anthology, titled: CLASSICS REMIXED. Edited by Karen T. Newman. This is a big beefy book, chock full of imaginative stories of characters we know from past fairy tales, novels, and folklore. What happens when you take famous story characters and put them in different scenarios, speculative situations, or twist around a fairy tale? You get Classics Remixed. An anthology of classic characters REMIXED and REIMAGINED into something new and different. It has beautiful cover art, and as always when I update my website, I will leave pictures of book covers, a lineup of the author talent (Table of Contents), and links to the publisher’s website and places like Amazon, where you can order this book in trade paperback form.

Silver Moon, Bloody Bullets… (Werewolf Anthology!)

It appears I’ve not only been shortlisted but accepted by a half-dozen or more print anthologies by various presses with themes over the next twelve months.  Some of these themes range from werewolves and vampires to dark speculative fiction and the Apocalypse.  One of these anthologies, and it’s a pretty thick one at that, is by the fairly new Pill Hill Press (www.pillhillpress.com).  I’m not quite sure, but I think I’m headlining a 25-author anthology of tales about these furry, fanged beasts who come out whenever there is a full moon.  I even recognize a few names, like Rob Rosen, Scott Sandridge, and Matthew Dent.  Still, this is a MUST HAVE Collection!

The Random Eye, Volume #2; 2010… (coming soon!)

For the second year in a row, I’ll be appearing in the annual eZine, The Random Eye. The Random Eye is about parallel universes, alternate history, alternative fiction, and stories which break the boundaries of communication.  Edited by Melissa Jones, the Random Eye is also The Random Radio.  My second acceptance is coming in early 2010, Volume #2.  It can best be described as a weird tale with a dash of steampunk, a dash of the historical, part fairy tale and part science fiction.  Oh yeah, and the 2010 theme is… TEA!

By the way, they’re still actively seeking fiction until January 2010.

Cover of Darkness, November 2009… (Now Available!)

This is probably one of my favorite covers to anything I’ve ever been in.  You can find an almost novelette-length story of mine in the very popular COVER OF DARKNESS, November 2009.  Published twice a year, it’s a magazine-anthology of lengthy horror, urban fantasy, speculative fiction and other dark tales in-between.  Edited by Tyree Campbell and published by Sam’s Dot.  For this issue, an entire town is destroyed… Dagstine-style.  And that officially ends the Fall 2009 year on Vampires, Werewolves, and Zombies.  This magazine’s a thick one.

CONTENTS/PREVIEWS:

1. Imagine
The collection opens with a sublime alternate history by Edward Morris, in which we learn what our world would be like if Ronald Reagan had been assassinated by a disgruntled rock musician whose career he had destroyed.  

Previously published in Interzone.

2. Some Things Never Change

Tomas L. Martin takes us on a surprising journey into an alternate present, in which a young English soldier yearns for a glimpse of true sorcery in the war in Iraq; if he can survive the experience.

3. Perfection (convenient, chewable, indispensable)

In the first of two stories, David Thorpe offers up a disturbing and surreal satire filled with social commentary on multiple levels, far beyond its surface theme concerning designer drugs.

4. Aliens Attack!

R. J. Astruc provides us with a thought provoking examination of the senselessness of war, in which tiny green aliens fall like snow from the skies. But are their intentions peaceful or malevolent?

5. Thank You, Death Robot

A soldier returning from war abroad encounters and befriends a death robot. What happens when he discovers that it is responsible for his fiancee’s murder? Victor Giannini provides us with the startling answers in the first of his stories.

Previously published in Silverthought: Ignition, Silverthought Press.

6. The Babies at Nae-long

John Parke Davis offers up a dark examination of child soldiers in an Africa in which the Globalista forces have retreated from whence they came. But do those who remain any longer know what they are fighting for?

7. Another Man’s Terrorist

Two young freedom fighters seeking refuge behind the lines arrive upon a space station now in enemy hands. In a true satire for our times, Bill Housley describes a brother and sister’s struggle to escape from the shadow of their terrorist past.

8. All For One

In a quirky satire filled with social commentary, Steven J. Dines takes us on a journey through the future of road rage, and government efforts to quash it…sort of.

Previously appeared in Darker Matter.

9. Miss Gohrman’s Trip

Joshua Allen examines Miss Gohrman’s fate when the representatives of a newly formed police state knock upon her door. But are they any match for a little old lady whose favorite cat has just been killed?

10. The Book of New Man

In his first story, Dudgeon examines a world in which a young gang member struggles to understand the unfortunate truth, that religion truly is an “opiate for the masses.”

Previously published by silverthought on-line.

11. Printed Matter

In a tale of psychological horror, Gary Cuba examines the unusual life of a bibliophile who is prevented from reading by an extreme form of dyslexia, and the lengths to which he is willing to go to create a book of his own.

12. In Your Box

Mike Philbin relates the story of a loner’s transformation into a pet fetishist, as he searches for meaning in a world where humans have become “a grid of drug-softened pulp being squeezed out of a factory’s rectum like societal spaghetti.”

13. Kubla Khan

In a fascinating satire of the future of gaming, Kevin Spiess takes us on a surreal journey through designer drugs and virtual reality, in which the line between game and reality blurs to gray.

14. Visitation

In a captivating story filled with vivid imagery, Roger Haller examines the nature of crime and punishment in an alien society, where one’s rehabilitation may take more than one lifetime.

Originally published by silverthought on-line.

15. Strings Attached

What happens when you awaken with blood on your hands? Jason K. Chapman provides the answers in this dark examination of a new form of cybernetic prostitution, in which a “Mario” struggles for his life and freedom.

16. Brain Takes A Sick Day

Sometimes taking a day off can be the best career move you can possibly make. Dan Kopcow explains in a delightfully funny satire of the corporate world, which is laced with so much irony and coincidence that a more detailed review could not do it justice.

17. Doc Chaos: The Last Laugh

David Thorpe’s second story provides us with a dark and cautionary tale of nuclear apocalypse resulting from the “peaceful” uses of atomic energy. But who will survive to tell the tale?

18. The Ambassador of Hate

In this dark satire concerning the psychology of interplanetary travel, and the politics of social control through drugs, Paul Mannering examines the nature of both madness, and revenge.

19. Human Transfer

In a chilling examination of the effects of desperation on society, Lawrence R. Dagstine takes us to a dark future in which population control measures have become so extreme that they can turn family against family.

Previously published in Escape Velocity.

20. The Shark Engine Enigma

A surfer dude’s untimely demise is just the beginning. Victor Giannini’s second story takes us beyond fear, suffering and superstition, in search of the ultimate truth concerning the enigmas of life and death.

21. A War Beyond War, and I Am the Only Soldier

In a brilliant satire of Christian mythology, we journey with Anden Sharp to 13th century France, where a young monk is called upon “for a work even more important than Our Lord’s.” But this is just the beginning in the eyes of those around him.

22. Foray

Who will survive a trip clinging to the world cliff, looking down upon the madness of Hades below? In this dark tale of Social Darwinism, Dan Marcus provides the answers, and they are not what you expect.

23. Return to Oz

Roger Haller’s second story is a delightful little satire with a twist: the tale of Earthers’ return to their slowly recovering, ecologically devastated planet of origin in the far future. But do they deserve a second chance?

Previously appeared in silverthought on-line.

24. The Pembina Valley Mushroom Massacre

Finally, a young man who embarks upon an unconventional vision quest gets more than he bargained for in Dudgeon’s second tale. We join him as he struggles to come to terms with the shocking truth concerning humanity’s future…and his own.

Mike Philbin relates the story of a loner’s transformation into a pet fetishist, as he searches for meaning in a world where humans have become “a grid of drug-softened pulp being squeezed out of a factory’s rectum like societal spaghetti.”

13. Kubla Khan

In a fascinating satire of the future of gaming, Kevin Spiess takes us on a surreal journey through designer drugs and virtual reality, in which the line between game and reality blurs to gray.

14. Visitation

In a captivating story filled with vivid imagery, Roger Haller examines the nature of crime and punishment in an alien society, where one’s rehabilitation may take more than one lifetime.

Originally published by silverthought on-line.

15. Strings Attached

What happens when you awaken with blood on your hands? Jason K. Chapman provides the answers in this dark examination of a new form of cybernetic prostitution, in which a “Mario” struggles for his life and freedom.

16. Brain Takes A Sick Day

Sometimes taking a day off can be the best career move you can possibly make. Dan Kopcow explains in a delightfully funny satire of the corporate world, which is laced with so much irony and coincidence that a more detailed review could not do it justice.

17. Doc Chaos: The Last Laugh

David Thorpe’s second story provides us with a dark and cautionary tale of nuclear apocalypse resulting from the “peaceful” uses of atomic energy. But who will survive to tell the tale?

18. The Ambassador of Hate

In this dark satire concerning the psychology of interplanetary travel, and the politics of social control through drugs, Paul Mannering examines the nature of both madness, and revenge.

In a chilling examination of the effects of desperation on society, Lawrence R. Dagstine takes us to a dark future in which population control measures have become so extreme that they can turn family against family.

Previously published in Escape Velocity.

20. The Shark Engine Enigma

A surfer dude’s untimely demise is just the beginning. Victor Giannini’s second story takes us beyond fear, suffering and superstition, in search of the ultimate truth concerning the enigmas of life and death.

21. A War Beyond War, and I Am the Only Soldier

In a brilliant satire of Christian mythology, we journey with Anden Sharp to 13th century France, where a young monk is called upon “for a work even more important than Our Lord’s.” But this is just the beginning in the eyes of those around him.

22. Foray

Who will survive a trip clinging to the world cliff, looking down upon the madness of Hades below? In this dark tale of Social Darwinism, Dan Marcus provides the answers, and they are not what you expect.

23. Return to Oz

Roger Haller’s second story is a delightful little satire with a twist: the tale of Earthers’ return to their slowly recovering, ecologically devastated planet of origin in the far future. But do they deserve a second chance?

Previously appeared in silverthought on-line.

24. The Pembina Valley Mushroom Massacre

Finally, a young man who embarks upon an unconventional vision quest gets more than he bargained for in Dudgeon’s second tale. We join him as he struggles to come to terms with the shocking truth concerning humanity’s future…and his own.

In other news, I’ll also be appearing in four more spec-fic anthologies between this year and next (about the first two, for now).  One, which has already found a publisher is, SATIRICA: An Anthology of Satirical Speculative Fiction.  When I get more details, publishing information, lineups, stuff like that, I’ll be sure to post it.  Next, another SF anthology worth reserving, and edited by Darlene Oakley, would be: EISODOS STATION and Other Adventures.

Barren Worlds, SF Anthology… (Author Line-Up!)

I’m pleased to announce that I have an author line-up for Hadley Rille Books’ forthcoming science fiction anthology, BARREN WORLDS.  This is a themed anthology, and it’s about planets or futuristic locales which are barren, empty or, more or less, feature lonely people.  Edited by Eric T. Reynolds (with Adam Nakama), Hadley Rille’s speculative fiction collections and authors have gone on to be nominated or recommended in the past for the Nebula Award.  So their books are worth the cover price, and there’s a lot of stories to choose from.
