RELEASE UPDATE: Moon Anthology is (sort of) canceled

The Planetary Anthology series is being discontinued.

In fact, even the five anthologies that have been published already have been discontinued. They will no longer be available for sale online from the publisher.

Which is odd for me. Especially after a year where the Area 51 anthology I was in this year was conceived of, edited, and released in 3 months from call for stories to publication.

So, yeah, the original publisher isn't doing them anymore.

However, the anthologies have all been picked up again by Tuscany Bay Books.

Which means that they're going to be published by Richard Paolinelli, a great author, Dragon Award Finalist, and he's only been doing this for about 30 years.

So he might know a thing or two.

Oh, yeah, and we have a new cover and a new art style.

The next anthology up is Pluto, edited by Richard himself.

After that, however, is The Moon.

Previously, I had announced that the moon would be broken up into two parts -- the moon, and the dark side of e moon.

As of now, the authors include the following.
  • Me
  • Ann Margaret Lewis
  • Margo St Aubin
  • Lori Bowman
  • AM Freeman
  • Richard Paolinelli
  • William Lehman
  • Karina Fabian
  • Justin Tarquin
  • Mark Wandrey
  • Steven Johnson
  • Bokerah Brumley 
  • Karl.Gallagher
  • Paul Go
  • Penelope Laird
  • Caroline Furlong
  • Lou Antonelli
  • Jody Lin Nye 
  • L Jagi Lamplighter
  • Lloyd A. Behm II
  • Josh Griffing

But this one has everything, more or less. 

We have two sets of werewolves ... maybe. 

We have psychotic elves in libraries. 

We have mining on the moon where people have delved too deep. 

We have HP Lovecraft insanity on a fishing trip.

Demonic poker games with the dead. 

The end of the world.

A jail break from a space station for the deranged, making a deal with the devil.

We won't even go into the stories I didn't accept. Heh heh heh.

Next book up in the anthology is Pluto. Edited by Richard himself.

After that? Luna. At long last.

Sorry, I've been ready to get this published for a year now. It's a bit of a relief.

Anyway, while you're waiting for Luna to come out, take a look at the list of my publications. See if you're interested in any of them.

Buckle up. This is going to be a heck of a week for news.
