The answer might surprise some of you.
Actually, it might surprise a lot of you.
A good friend of mine, J.M. Ney-Grimm, and I have been editing a science fiction and fantasy anthology for the past several months!
It's called Quantum Zoo. Why Quantum Zoo? Because all of the stories spring from a common prompt:
(What? Were you expecting "Quantum Theory?")
Out of a bunch of submissions, we selected ten of the best stories submitted, in addition to one each of our own, and have been working with the authors on refining them, providing feedback, and otherwise...err...."editing" them.
The result is an anthology that we're both very proud of, one that will whisk you away to a starship, humanity's last gasp on its way to another star system one minute, then have you confront an amicable-enough-seeming demon the next. You'll encounter foul-smelling, disgusting aliens manipulating peoples' minds and Egyptian gods and goddesses. Jack the Ripper even makes an appearance.
Did I mention the dinosaur terrorizing the countryside in Jolly Ol' England?
(If you haven't been able to tell yet, I have an irrational love of dinosaurs running around terrorizing humans).
Each story is designed to send you on a fantastic journey away from the mundane day-to-day, an invitation to explore twelve very talented authors' worlds, an excuse to exercise your imagination and ponder strange, wonderful new possibilities.
Plus, like I said, it's the only place you'll find my newest work, "Echoes of Earth."
We'll be releasing Quantum Zoo in the next couple of weeks. For now, if you want to be reminded when it comes out, simply leave your email address in the box below. Who knows? Maybe you'll even get it for nothing...
J.M. and I are both extremely proud of this anthology, amazed at the quality of submissions we received, and almost bursting with anticipation at its release.
Thanks--I sincerely hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed facilitating its creation!
