Colony–“one-shot” anthology released

What happens when you get a team of writers together and give them 24 hours to write and edit an entire speculative fiction collection on the theme of “Colony”? This anthology happens!

Colony Cover - ebook

This speculative fiction anthology was created during an intense, 24-hour period of writing and editing. A team of authors residing in Toronto were given the theme of “Colony”, and a strict timeline to produce stories based on that theme.This is more than a collection of imaginative and entertaining stories—it is also a feat in creative writing. It embodies the efforts of authors writing and editing fervently under absurd time pressures. They set themselves a challenge and pushed themselves to the finish line. The Colony anthology is the result of their efforts.

I hope you get a chance to read it, and let the authors know what you thought of their work!

Strange Economics – Economic Speculative Fiction

We just launched the Strange Economics anthology! Woo hoo!

What if souls were a form of currency? What if our potential could be bought and sold? What is the value of a memory? These economic questions and more are explored through twenty-three science fiction and fantasy stories, appearing for the first time in this collection.

The beautiful, full-wrap cover image, “Ring of Heaven”, is by illustrator Jonathan Maurin.

This anthology also includes economics discussion questions accompanying each of the stories, written by professional economist Elisabeth Perlman, and an afterword/essay exploring the relationship between speculative fiction and economics, written by guest editor Jo Lindsay Walton.

It’s an awesome collection, and I hope you check it out!

Sanctuary – an entire science fiction, fantasy, and horror anthology written in a day

We wrote and edited this entire anthology in a day. Seriously.

Sanctuary_Cover_for_Kindle

It usually takes about a year to produce an anthology. We decided to see what would happen if we tried to do it in a single day. Sanctuary is the result of that experiment.

All of the writers were given the theme “Sanctuary” in advance. They were allowed to come up with ideas, characters, plot elements, or anything else they wanted for planning purposes, based on this theme. But all the writing and editing was done in a single day, most of it over four hours in a marathon writing session at The Imperial Pub in downtown Toronto.

The cover is by Dominik Gutzeit (Hydraw-Art).

The paperback is available from Amazon here. Full disclosure: I make 8 cents per copy sold at this cover price.

If you want an eBook of Sanctuary, I’m happy to email you one for free. I’ve made a form for that here.

I would really like to get some positive reviews for this experimental anthology. So please, if you enjoy it, drop by the Amazon page and leave a review.

Thanks!

David

Some reviews of the book (from the first draft on Wattpad):

“The story is too excellent! I’m still trying to fathom what the heck goes on in the writer’s mind for his to be able to create this well thought-out universe.”

“Wow! That was bind blowing!”

“Thanks for such an excellent story. I haven’t been so Completely chained to a book in years.”

“Just…wow. I have never read such a complex sci-fi novel with so much detail in it!”

“Wow! I really didn’t want this book to end, well done!”

“Thoroughly enjoyed it, struggled putting it down.”

“beautiful character development and diversity!”

I hope those reviews are enough to encourage you to pick up the book from Amazon. And for the next couple weeks, it’ll be cheaper than a coffee!
