Nearly halfway through the year, and time for a little self-promotion – i.e., my magazine and anthology appearances during the rest of this year.
Andy Remic wanted “bizarro fiction” for Anarchy Book’s anthology Vivisepultura, and I certainly hope my story in it qualifies. There’s only one way to find out: buy a copy. Due to be published on 1st August.
I’ll be in The Exagerrated Press’ The Monster Book for Girls, edited by Terry Grimwood, which I believe will be launched at Fantasycon in Brighton in September.
I have a story in Eibonvale Press’ new anthology, Where Are We Going?, edited by Allen Ashley – due to be published in late 2011 / early 2012. The story is my bathypunk one, which was inspired by the one and only descent to Challenger Deep, the deepest part of any ocean , in 1960.
Next month’s Jupiter sf magazine has one of my stories in it. It will be, as far as I’m aware, the only death metal hard sf story ever to see print. It quotes extensively from the lyrics of one of my favourite bands, Mithras (with their permission, of course). Then there’s Alt Hist #3, publication date currently unknown, which will contain one of my stories.
Finally, there’s Rocket Science, the hard sf anthology I’m editing for Mutation Press. The submission period starts on 1st August, so I’m fully expecting to get mailbombed on that date.
