I’m excited to announce I have a story coming out in a new Science Fiction anthology titled No Way Home.
Sci-fi is a bit of a departure from my usual genre, although I read plenty of it. I loved the challenge, and I’m really happy with how my story has turned out. I hope you’ll like it too.
The anthology features some of the greatest up-and-coming speculative fiction authors on the indie scene. You’ll find stories from Lucas Bale, Harry Manners, Alex Roddie (writing as A.S. Sinclair), S.Elliot Brandis, Michael Patrick Hicks, J.S. Collyer, Nadine Matheson, and me, of course. I’ve had a sneak peek at some of the other stories in the collection, and trust me when I say you don’t want to miss them.
Expected Release date: 2 March 2015.
Stories From Which There is No Escape.
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.
