Joy to the Worlds Holiday Anthology
Coming just in time for the holidays from the Speculative Fiction Writers Group, this flash fiction anthology contains thirteen tales of Christmas hope and horror that are sure to brighten even the darkest holiday spirits.
Do the holidays mark times of misery and despair? Then you might revel in stories about murderous holiday bots, omnipotent in-laws overstaying their welcome, unwanted visitors from outer space, or a time travel mission gone terribly wrong.
Or, if the holidays bring tidings of joy, you might prefer tales of festive androids, genetic breakthroughs, an unusual champion of might, or the celebration of a unique nativity on a future colony.
This anthology includes two of my stories. Guiding Flight relays how a seminal space voyage impacts history in an unexpected way, while The Champion of Arctica envisions some of the challenges it takes to become Santa.
As a member of one of the ten judging teams for the Self-Published Science Fiction Competition (SPSFC), I'm reading the first 20% of thirty awesome books randomly distributed to my team (Team Meteor). Once we have identified ten contenders/quarter finalists, I will start reading those to completion. Reviews of those books will follow and be posted to my blog.
