THE MODERN DEITY'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING HUMANITY:  

In this follow-up to THE MODERN FAE'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING HUMANITY, we switch our attention to how the deities of old have managed to fit themselves into today's modern world! Is Narcissus an Instagram influencer? Is Coyote playing the stock market? Does Ra own a solar panel company? Was Dr. Ruth really Venus? How have the gods and goddesses managed to survive alongside cell phones and computers and social media influencers? We invite authors to explore how the immortals have changed with the times.

Edited by Patricia Bray & Joshua Palmatier, THE MODERN DEITY'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING HUMANITY will contain approximately fourteen stories with an average length of 6,000 words each. Anchor authors (and the gods they may use) include: Alma Alexander (Freyja), David Farland (Woden/Odin: German), Tanya Huff (Hera: Greek), Juliet E. McKenna (Nemesis/Themis: Greek), Phyllis Irene Radford (Anshar/Tiamet: Babylonian), Laura Resnick (assorted), Kari Sperring (Cigfa, Goewin, Gwydion: Welsh), Jean Marie Ward (Dionysus: Greek), and Edward Willett (Ninkasi: Sumerian)

 

DERELICT

No one can resist the mystery of the abandoned ship--whether it's the ghost ship found afloat at sea in the Bermuda Triangle or the spaceship drifting in the depths of space a la the movie Alien. What happened to the crew? What horror forced them to abandon their vessel and flee…or are they still on board, trapped or even all dead? In this anthology, we want authors to explore all of the possibilities when one runs across…a DERELICT.

Edited by David B. Coe & Joshua Palmatier, DERELICT will contain approximately fourteen stories with an average length of 6,000 words each. Anchor authors include: Jacey Bedford, Alex Bledsoe, Gerald Brandt, Julie E. Czerneda, Kate Elliott, John G. Hemry/Jack Campbell, D.B. Jackson, Gini Koch, Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, and Kristine Smith

 

WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE

Throughout history, different cultures have collided in different ways, whether it be the peaceful contact between Rome and Han China in the second century that established the Silk Road, or the more violent interactions between Europe and the Americas thirteen hundred years later. Such first contact stories have long been a staple of speculative fiction. The stories featured in WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE will continue this long tradition as the authors explore the myriad ways in which two cultures—alien or fae, machine or human—can clash. Will the colliding societies manage to peacefully coexist after they finally meet? Or will they embark instead on a path of mutual self-destruction? Find out—WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE.

Edited by S.C. Butler & Joshua Palmatier, WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE will contain approximately fourteen stories with an average length of 6,000 words each. Anchor authors include: S.C. Butler, Esther Friesner, Auston Habershaw, Steven Harper, Nancy Holzner, Howard Andrew Jones, Stephen Leigh, Violette Malan, and Alan Smale
