I just got the news this week that an anthology I sold a story to some time ago has finally come out in ebook, with print to follow:
The theme of the book, Times of Trouble, is the much-maligned genre of time travel. A lot of people say it’s been done to death, and maybe they’re right, but reading A Wrinkle in Time when I was a kid was a mind-blowing revelation, and I’ve had a fondness for time travel ever since. Here’s the description of the book:
TIME TRAVEL IS THE ULTIMATE DO-OVER.
It’s funny how second chances usually wind up being just another opportunity to make the same mistakes, though.
The authors represented in the collection you now hold were tasked to create grim and gritty tales of time travel gone horribly wrong.
They have done so, in some wildly varied ways.
There are stories of rare and exceptional beauty; stories of dark, otherworldly horror; stories of white-knuckle thrills and even some that will make you laugh out loud.
In fact, if you pay close attention, in at least one of these adventures, you’ll realize that no time travel at all ever takes place.
All of them will take you places–and times–you’ve yet to be, and make you think about the experience.
I also want to remind everyone that two of my ebooks are free today, Beyond the Waters of the World and “Misty and the Magic Pumpkin Knife.” In addition, Shadow of Stone will be on sale this weekend for 2.99.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
