THE IMMORTALITY CHRONICLES -- Sept 4 release, pre-order available!
What if you could live forever? Defy death itself? Even now, scientific advances in regenerative medicine, life extension, cryonics, cybernetics, and in other areas have brought humans to the brink of solving life's final conundrum. Twelve authors imagine that uninterrupted journey, confronting not just how, but what it means when human life can continue indefinitely, invulnerable, immortal.
Edited by Carol Davis, with contributions from Will Swardstrom, Thomas Robins, D. Robert Pease, Paul B. Kohler, D.K. Cassidy, John Gregory Hancock, Harlow C. Fallon. Patricia Gilliam. E.E. Giorgi, Drew Avera, David Bruns, and Gareth Foy.
THE Z CHRONICLES -- #1 Bestselling Anthology in Suspense & Horror!
Among the most monstrous creations of our imaginations, the zombie terrifies, with its capacity to pursue its prey, to run it down, exhaust it to surrender, unrelentingly. Fourteen authors confront the nightmare, that horrific mirror of ourselves that pursues us with untiring hunger.
Edited by Ellen Campbell, with contributions from Hugh Howey, Jennifer Foehner Wells, David Adams, Christopher Boore, Angela Cavanaugh, Peter Cawdron, Ann Christy, Stacy Ericson, Deirdre Gould, Kris Holt, Theresa Kay, Geoffrey Wakeling, Lesley Smith, and Will Swardstrom.
THE DRAGON CHRONICLES -- #1 Bestselling Anthology in Fantasy! Top 100 Overall on Amazon!
Dragons. They are more than a memory from an age of wizards and heroes. These winged, fire-breathing beasts soar through the traditions of many lands, and through our dreams. In their many guises – Western or Eastern, reptile or lizard or serpent, wyvern, hydra, basilisk – dragons embody everything that we humans call magic. Twelve authors invite you to journey to very different worlds – lands of fire and fury, of legend and lore – but all worlds where dragons roam unshackled from myth, freed from the imagination, and real.
Edited by Ellen Campbell, with contributions from Daniel Arenson, Elle Casey, David Adams, Vincent Trigili, Monica Enderle Pierce, K.J. Colt, Kim Wells, Terah Edun, Alex Albrinck, Ted Cross, Nina Croft, and Chris Pourteau.
THE A.I. CHRONICLES -- #1 Bestselling SF Anthology! Top 100 Overall on Amazon!
A.I.: Artificial Intelligence. Even today, machines that mimic human thinking surround us. As the intellectual feats of computing machines grow more and more astounding, will there be a day when their apparent intelligence approaches, or even surpasses, that of human beings? And what if these machines then become conscious, self-aware?
Thirteen authors confront the question of the Singularity: at and beyond that point of time when A.I. becomes more than simply a human construct. From first awareness to omniscience, these original short stories explore that territory where human intelligence comes face-to-face with what is either its greatest hope, or its greatest threat.
Edited by Ellen Campbell, with stories from David Simpson, Julie Czerneda, Chrystalla Thoma, Pavarti K. Tyler, Susan Kaye Quinn, Peter Cawdron, Angela Cavanaugh, E. E. Giorgi, Alex Albrinck, Sam Best, A.K. Meek, Patrice Fitzgerald, and Logan Thomas Snyder.
THE ALIEN CHRONICLES -- #1 Bestselling SF Anthology! Top 10 overall on Amazon!
Intelligent life on other planets: it's the brass ring of space exploration. Do extra-terrestrial species exist? Will we ever make contact? Perhaps, have we made contact already?
From first contact to last stand, these original short stories range from quiet tales of personal connection to adrenaline-infused inter-species space conflicts. Each tale promises to present you with a different look at what intelligent alien life might be like -- and how we Earthlings might respond to it.
Edited by David Gatewood, with stories from Hugh Howey, Samuel Peralta, B. V. Larson, Jennifer Foehner Wells, Daniel Arenson, Blair Babylon, Annie Bellet, Peter Cawdron, WJ Davies, Patrice Fitzgerald, Autumn Kalquist, Moira Katson, Will Swardstrom, Geoffrey Wakeling, Nicolas Wilson, and a foreword from Stefan Bolz.
THE TELEPATH CHRONICLES -- #1 Bestselling SF Anthology!
Telepathy. With today’s giant leaps forward in technology and biotechnology, with people constantly surrounded by sophisticated yet invisible communication networks, and with a rapidly increasing understanding of the brain’s inner workings . . . is it so hard to imagine that we might be able to develop direct mind-to-mind communication?
From that first glorious moment of discovery, to the subsequent jealousies and class divisions, to the dangers of weaponization and the blessings of medical miracles, The Telepath Chronicles promises to take you inside the creative minds of some of today’s top science fiction authors.
Edited by David Gatewood, with stories from Elle Casey, Peter Cawdron, Nina Croft, E.E. Giorgi, Autumn Kalquist, Theresa Kay, Therin Knite, Meilin Miranda, Samuel Peralta, Susan Kaye Quinn, Chris Reher, Vincent Trigili, Endi Webb, and Nicolas Wilson.
THE ROBOT CHRONICLES -- #1 Bestselling SF Anthology!
Robots. Androids. Artificial Intelligence. Scientists predict that the "singularity" -- the moment when mankind designs the first greater-than-human intelligence -- is nearly within our grasp.
Will these "post-human" intelligences be our friends? Our servants? Our rivals? What will we learn from them? What will they learn from us? Will we allow them to lead their own lives? Will they have basic human rights? Will we?
Edited by David Gatewood, with stories from Hugh Howey, Matthew Mather, Samuel Peralta, David Adams, Ann Christy, Nina Croft, WJ Davies, Patrice Fitzgerald, Jason Gurley, Deirdre Gould, A.K. Meek, Edward W. Robertson, Endi Webb, and a foreword by David Simpson.
