The End is Nigh Arrives!

I have a story in a totally awesome anthology edited by J.J. Adams and Hugh HoweyThis is the first of a triptych of post-apocalypse anthologies.

My story was singled out in a recent review of the anthology on Wired.com, here’s an excerpt:

“Some stories hit with more force than others. “Goodnight Moon,” by Annie Bellet — a relatively quiet story about a group of astronauts saying their goodbyes and awaiting the end from their base on the moon — is both my favorite of the anthology and the one that wrecked me most thoroughly.”

Read the full review (and one of the stories free!) on Wired.com.

This anthology is chock full of amazing stories by award-winning and bestselling writers.  Here’s the table of contents:

Introduction by John Joseph Adams | “The Balm and the Wound” by Robin Wasserman | “Heaven is a Place on Planet X” by Desirina Boskovich | “Break! Break! Break!” by Charlie Jane Anders | “The Gods Will Not Be Chained” by Ken Liu | “Wedding Day” by Jake Kerr | “Removal Order” by Tananarive Due | “System Reset” by Tobias S. Buckell | “This Unkempt World is Falling to Pieces” by Jamie Ford | “BRING HER TO ME” by Ben H. Winters | “In the Air” by Hugh Howey | “Goodnight Moon” by Annie Bellet | “Dancing with Death in the Land of Nod” by Will McIntosh | “Houses Without Air” by Megan Arkenberg | “The Fifth Day of Deer Camp” by Scott Sigler | “Enjoy the Moment” by Jack McDevitt | “Pretty Soon the Four Horsemen are Going to Come Riding Through” by Nancy Kress | “Spores” by Seanan McGuire | “She’s Got a Ticket to Ride” by Jonathan Maberry | “Agent Unknown” by David Wellington | “Enlightenment” by Matthew Mather | “Shooting the Apocalypse” by Paolo Bacigalupi | “Love Perverts” by Sarah Langan.

Upcoming in 2013

I’ve been pretty busy lately finishing up some projects and doing some stuff for projects I can’t talk about yet, but I figured I’d update and let people see a preview of what is coming in the next three months from myself and Doomed Muse Press.

First up, I’m just finishing the first full-length Gryphonpike Chronicles novel. It’s got rogues, dragons, ship battles, and general adventuring awesomeness. Here’s the cover:

After that I’m turning my focus to short fiction and novellas for a couple months since I have three short story collections almost ready to go.

The first is a general science fiction and fantasy collection in the same vein as my previous collection “Till Human Voices Wake Us”.  It will have about 10 short stories and novelettes as well as one or two novellas.  Here’s the cover for it:

The second collection will be of my urban fantasy short fiction, including a brand new Remy Pigeon story as well as a brand new novella.  Here is the cover for that:

And finally the third collection will be an adventure fantasy collection featuring six short stories, two novelettes, and a brand new novella (or maybe two if I get carried away, I have two I really want to write and include so it will depend on time).  Here is the cover for the adventure fantasy collection:

 

So expect those out before Christmas! I’ll post when they are available with full descriptions and links where you can find them. Now, back to the word mines.
