WordFire Press to publish Lou Antonelli alternate history novel

WordFire Press has signed a contract with Lou Antonelli for his debut novel, Another Girl, Another Planet. WordFire Press Publisher Kevin J. Anderson said, “Lou has written a wonderful, unique Cold War story that can only be described as ‘Cold War Punk.’  He’s a great writer, and I’ve never seen anything like this.”

WordFire Press Acquisitions Editor Dave Butler describes Another Girl, Another Planet as a "Heinleinian alternate history of politics, espionage, and murder on the Red Planet.” Another Girl, Another Planet is one of Butler's first acquisitions since he took his current post with WordFire on Feb. 19. Renowned Editor Bryan Thomas Schmidt is developmental editor on the project.

An accomplished short story author with 96 publications and three collections, Antonelli was a finalist for the Sidewise Award in alternate history in 2013. The Texas-based author describes Another Girl, Another Planet as a “retro-futurist alternate history.” The novel is due out before the end of the year.

WordFire Press is a mid-sized Colorado-based publisher featuring the works of many bestselling and award-winning authors, including Kevin J. Anderson, Frank Herbert, Allen Drury, Jody Lynn Nye, Alan Dean Foster, Mike Resnick, Brian Herbert, Tracy Hickman, David Farland, and others.
