Exciting news! One of my short stories will be appearing in the new science fiction anthology Brave New Worlds.
Here’s a preview from the publisher:
“Humans have dreamed of traveling to the stars for generations. Their hope? To discover verdant new planets where they can build new societies or escape past persecutions. Brave New Worlds will feature fourteen stellar stories set anywhere along our prospective settlers’ uncertain paths—from the heart-wrenching departure from Earth, through the unknown dangers of the long flight through the cold vastness of space, to the immigrants’ final arrival on an alien world. Will they be confronted by the ethical issue of an entirely new ecosystem, or the pure engineering challenges of terraforming a previously lifeless planet? Join us in Brave New Worlds as we explore humanity’s race for the stars!”
Edited by S.C. Butler and Joshua Palmatier, it will be released in August and is available for pre-order in both paperback and ebook through publisher Zombies Need Brains, LLC. You can also pre-order on your Kindle.
