Fear The Future: publishing news!
I have been sitting on this news for ages and it is great to be able to share it with everyone (and some of you will already have seen this going round on social media).
The brilliant Corpus Press are putting out the third in their In Darkness, Delight series called Fear The Future (great title!) and I am delighted that Evans and Andrew accepted my story What It Takes alongside works from an amazing array of talent including Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller fame.
My story is a near-future tale about bio-tech and what happens when it gets hijacked. I had a lot of fun with imagining how someone might react when they thought what would be their saviour possibly becomes their route to destruction. Just what would you do to survive and to protect your loved ones?
The blurb and full stellar line up (just soak up the talent on display!) are below and copies of Fear The Future can be purchased from Amazon US and Amazon UK. Plus take a look at that amazing cover; stunning! I really think you're going to love this book and would love to hear what you think of it.
IN DARKNESS, DELIGHT: FEAR THE FUTURE
"Tomorrow is coming whether you’re ready or not.
In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future delivers twenty-two strikingly original tales of terror from Bram Stoker Award®-winners, bestselling authors, genre stalwarts and rising stars.
Includes Emmy-winning, New York Times bestselling author and world-famous magician Penn Jillette’s delightfully wicked short story “The Pain Addict,” which was adapted for a hit sci-fi anthology television series and is available here exclusively for the first time in book format.
Be warned: these are not science fiction stories with a dash of dread. These are visions of the horrifying futures that await us all.
