Greetings fellow fiction fanatics.
I’m thrilled to announce that I will be featured in this amazingly spiffy upcoming anthology of Dystiopian Scifi: No Way Home. It features short stories by fellow SciFi writers Lucas Bale, S. Elliot Brandis, S.W. Fairbrother, Michael Patrick Hicks, Harry Manners, Nadine Matheson and Alex Roddie. Do check them all out, but either way you can accept my word that this is a strong body of writers.
No Way Home is a collection of 8 short stories (around 10,000 words each, so tales to really sink your teeth into) exploring the theme of being stranded or far away somewhere strange, trying to get home and wondering if you ever can.
The official blurb is below so do check it out and add it to your To-Read lists on Goodreads!
The collection is slated for release in March 2015, however, you can get your hands on a FREE advance copy in exchange for a review on Amazon posted in time for release. If you would like to be added to the list to recieve an ARC (Advance Review Copy, don’t you know) just comment below or get in touch on Twitter or Facebook.
No Way Home
Nothing terrifies us more than being stranded. Helpless, forsaken, cut-off. Locked in a place from which there is no escape, no way to get home.
A soldier trapped in an endless war dies over and over, only to be awakened each time to fight again – one of the last remaining few seeking to save mankind from extinction.
In rural 70s England, an RAF radio engineer returns to an abandoned military installation, but begins to suffer hallucinations, shifts in time and memories that are not his own.
A widower, one of ten thousand civilian space explorers, is sent alone to determine his assigned planet’s suitability for human colonisation, but stumbles across a woman who is part of the same programme and shouldn’t be there at all.
A depressed woman in a poverty-stricken near-future America, where political apathy has allowed special interests to gain control of the country, takes part in a particularly unpleasant crowd-funding platform, established by the nation’s moneyed elite to engage the masses.
An assassin from the future, sent back in time to murder a woman, is left stranded when he fails in his mission and knows he will soon cease to exist.
These sometimes dark, sometimes heart-warming, but always insightful stories and more are to be found in No Way Home, where eight of the most exciting new voices in speculative fiction explore the mental, physical and even meta-physical boundaries that imprison us when we are lost
