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!
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!
I just put my book, Angels and Wormholes, on sale from $3.99 to 99c. It’ll be at that price for the next two weeks. I would love if you would pick up a copy. And please leave a review, if you’re up for it (Amazon reviews are really, really valuable for writers).
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!
My collection of very short poems, ‘spatial arrangement‘, was just published in Abyss & Apex, where it is available online to read for free. Each poem represents notable objects in our solar system, beginning at the sun and moving outwards through all the planets (also including the moon, Pluto, “planet x”, and beyond). Check it out if you have a minute!
My story ‘Elder Gods in the Machine’ is included in the anthology Lovecraftian Tales: Stories of Weird Fiction and Cosmic Horror, which is produced by the Lovecraft eZine. It’s available now. Check it out if you’re into that sort of thing.
