Another New Release! Planetary Anthology: Mars is out!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on March 16, 2018

This was kind of unexpected. This is still the week I’m pushing my brand-new novel, Blood Creek Witch. Seriously. It’s awesome, in my totally biased opinion. I’m hearing comments from people (including those I don’t know) about how much they are enjoying it, and I’m deliriously happy. At least it’s finding some of its audience, and it is resonating with them. If you haven’t seen it yet, and you are in the mood for a fantasy story about magic and monsters set in modern-era Appalachia, check it out at Amazon.

So… really, that’s still my focus. Novel! Blood Creek Witch! Check it out! The first few chapters are available as a free preview on Amazon, so you can “try before you buy.”

But wait… there’s more! (Oh, man, I can’t even write that without hearing Ron Popeil’s voice saying it…) An anthology I wrote for months ago just came out as well. And it’s also really, really cool. I’m thrilled to be a part of it. Planetary: Mars is a collection of speculative fiction thematically related to Mars… the planet, the god, or elements related to the god’s domain in mythology. So pretty much war, battle, etc. Science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy, you name it.

Planetary: Mars (eBook)

Planetary: Mars (Paperback)

(The two versions aren’t linked as of right now, but they will be)

It includes stories by legendary writer Kevin J. Anderson (Holy crap, I’m in an anthology with Kevin J. Anderson), Chuck Dixon (who wrote for Marvel and DC, best known for his work on The Punisher, Batman, Nightwing, and Robin), veteran award-winning authors Louis Antonelli, Julie Frost, and Declan Finn,  #PulpRev powerhouses Kai Wai (Ben) Cheah and Jon Mollison, and many more. It’s a fantastic mix of authors!

My story is called “The Martian Princess,” about the ghost ship of a luxury spaceliner by that name. It also involves pirates and a space monster. I had a lot of fun writing this one. I hope you find it as fun to read as I did to write.

Cool stuff all around.

BTW, I’m relaunching my mailing list. This one is primarily for books, not the game-related stuff. There’ll be some perks to being on the list in the not-too-distant future. If you are interested in signing up, you can do that here:
