I have a story in an anthology called In Situ and it’s going to be published tomorrow (12 noon New York time on 10th July – which is 2 am Brisbane time on 11th July) so stand by your Amazon “buy” button because this is a collection of stories you won’t want to miss. Here’s the blurb:
“From independent publisher Dagan Books, IN SITU is a new anthology of science fiction stories featuring alien archaeology, hidden mysteries, and things that are better off left buried. A quiet man finds more than he bargained for when he sets out with his metal detector on a lonely hill … A soldier meets a new kind of enemy fighting an altogether different kind of war … On a distant swamp planet, a woman questions what kind of human she’s becoming … a pregnant archaeologist finds a connection with a long-dead alien child … while deep space scavengers wonder what it ever meant to be human at all. These fifteen evocative science fiction stories will take you from dusty archaeologists digging up our alien past into a distant future where we’ve become the relics. Thought-provoking and entertaining, IN SITU explores science, theology, preservation, and the art of alien finance, in a whole new way. Edited by Carrie Cuinn. Contains stories by Ken Liu, KV Taylor, Paul A. Dixon, Bear Weiter, Mae Empson, Jason Andrew, Greg Burch, Sarah Hendrix, R.S. Hunter, Rebecca Lloyd, Alex Shvartsman, Kelly C. Stiles, Graham Storrs, David J. West, and Dawn Vogel.”
It’s a great theme for an anthology, don’t you think? And the publishers have made sure the price is very reasonable (just $9.99 for the paperback, $3.99 in ebook formats). However, if you fancy your chances of winning a copy for free, there is a giveaway on Goodreads for the rest of this month. I hope you enjoy it.
