Here’s the scoop on my latest anthology project:
Raygun Chronicles: Space Opera For a New Age
Edited by Bryan Thomas Schmidt
A collection of best of stories from Ray Gun Revival’s multi-year run combined with new stories from headliners.
Ray Gun Revival is all about space opera and golden age science fiction. A Kickstarter will be running in January and February 2013 to help fund this project. It will be published November 2013 by Every Day Publishing with a launch at OryCon in Portland, Oregon.
Along with classic Raygun Revival reprints, we’ll have new stories from the following headliners: Dean Wesley Smith, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Sarah A. Hoyt, Robin Wayne Bailey, Brenda Cooper and Allen Steele.
We’ll also have new stories from up and comers Peter J. Wacks and Keanan Brand along with reprints from headliners Mike Resnick and A.C. Crispin, a story which has never appeared in short form before.
