I wanted to take a few moments to share a little about an anthology that will be released the first of November. It will include my short story, Old World Problems, which I believe is among my best work. The protagonist in my story is a cynical and hard-boiled private detective working on a space habitat. I wrote the story around the same time as I published the blog post Writing and Relationships. I’d suggest reading the blog post after reading the story.
A few of the authors have sent me quick pitches for their stories, and you’ll find those below. If other authors send me a pitch, I’ll update this post and include it. For your convenience, I’ve Googled the authors I haven’t heard from and included links to their author pages or their Amazon profile if I found one.
So, read through the information below and check out the authors, and don’t forget to leave yourself a reminder to pick up the anthology on the first of November!
