Hey everyone, got this news from Pat (the man behind the Hotlist, a blog all of us in the blogosphere know) and it’s not only for a worthy cause but it’s also great news. 🙂
The anthology that Pat edited, Strange Horizons, is now available to be pre-ordered. It promises to be a great addition to any SFF-lover’s bookshelf, what with all the authors involved! Here’s the info, taken from this post on the Hotlist:
Speculative fiction is wide in scope and styles, and Speculative Horizons showcases the talent and storytelling skills of five of the genre’s most imaginative voices:
In C. S. Friedman’s “Soul Mate,” it’s love at first sight for Josie at the arts and crafts festival when she meets the handsome Stephan Mayeaux. It all sounds too good to be true until her newfound boyfriend starts to act strangely and unexplained occurrences begin to take place around her.
In Tobias S. Buckell’s “The Eve of the Fall of Habesh,” contragnartii Jazim must carry out one final assignment before the armies of the Sea People lay waste to the city he loves.
L. E. Modesitt, Jr. returns to the universe of his bestselling Recluce saga in “The Stranger.” A young herder’s existence will be forever changed by the unexpected arrival of the black-clad man recounting tales of angels living on the summit of the Roof of the World.
In “Flint,” Brian Ruckley introduces us to a young and inexperienced shaman who must venture into the spirit world to discover the source of the sickness which afflicts his tribe before they are all wiped out.
Talk to any cop working for Homicide, Narcotics, or Vice, and they’ll tell you that they get the worst cases imaginable. But in Hal Duncan’s “The Death of a Love,” you realize that they have nothing on Erocide.
Now here’s where the good cause comes in – Pat has managed to arrange it so that 10% of the cover price of each pre-ordered copy of Strange Horizons will go to the American Cancer Society. 🙂 This great offer lasts until the 21st of May, so be sure to spread the news far and wide – each pre-ordered copy will put some money into research against Cancer. 🙂
Here’s the link to the anthology’s page over at Subterranean Press, and here’s the cover:
I’ll probably never see a copy of this anthology, since Sub Press books are incredibly expensive when bought with Rands, but I’m looking forward to the reviews and to hearing how much money was made for cancer research. 🙂
