Coming Soon: Mirages & Speculations

Posted by Rampant Coyote on August 11, 2017

I’ve got another short story coming out VERY soon… like in just over a week… in the Mirages & Speculations Anthology, edited by Lyn Worthen. This anthology is all Science Fiction and Fantasy stories set in the desert. Most of the authors, as I understand it, are desert-dwellers themselves. You know, for that bit of authenticity. 🙂

I am extremely pleased and humbled to be included in this list of authors. There are a lot of authors here that I know and admire. Several are Writers of the Future winners. And yet my pulpy little sword & sorcery (well, bow-and-sorcery) adventure was selected to be among these. Lyn had to assure me this wasn’t  a mistake! If I hadn’t been included, this book would still would have been an insta-buy for me as soon as I saw it was available.

This will be my second time sharing the Table of Contents with Julie Frost and David West. We had stories in StoryHack #0, and we will have stories in StoryHack #1 (coming out in the second half of September).  I know the story by David in this one, and it’s one of my favorites. The others I’m familiar with here–Johnny Worthen, M. Shayne Bell, D. J. Butler, Paul Genesse, Gama Ray Martinez, and Leigh Saunders–are all fantastic. If you haven’t read their books or stories yet, this is a great introduction.

Mirages & Speculations will be released on August 21st, and will be available in digital and print editions. It will be distributed by BundleRabbit.com. I’ll keep you posted!

    I haven’t seen any updates of FK2 for a while.

    There is a Fallout-like game in production. It is called ATOM and happens in what’s left of Soviet Russia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDOYG6PRizA
