 Visions IV: Between the Stars

visions IV space beyond starsThis new SF anthology includes my story – Paradise Saved – as well as many others. Visions IV: Between the Stars is a diverse selection of science fiction edited by Carrol Fix, each exploring the space between the stars. It contains short stories by J. Richard Jacobs, S. M. Kraftchak, Tom Olbert, Timothy Paul, Mark P. Steele , Emma TonkinJohn Moralee (Me!), Sidney Blaylock Jr. , Sarah Buhrman , Preston Dennett , Jeremy M. Gottwig , Margaret Karmazin , Jeremy Lichtman , Mary Madigan , and Jonathan Shipley .

Visions IV: Space Between Stars is the fourth volume of science fiction short stories from Lillicat Publishing. Like the previous collections, volume IV explores an aspect of space exploration. It includes fifteen stories.

I particularly enjoyed reading Sari Sari by Mary Madigan for its rebellious cyberpunky feel, which reminded me of William Gibson’s early work. It’s an excellent story with a strong plot and characters.

The collection includes stories set on space stations, asteroids, colony ships and even inside a black hole. Many stories made me think of the great stories from the Golden Age of Science Fiction, when writers like Asimov and Clarke wrote upbeat hard SF stories about space exploration, telling realistic stories about the men and women (and aliens) living in space.

Each story has been carefully edited by Carrol Fix, making it an easy read.

If you like space opera, I hope you’ll check out Visions IV.

This anthology is now available from the publisher and Amazon.

kuiper belt coverI’m pleased to also have a story in the previous anthology, Visions III: Beyond the Kuiper Belt. It contains stories by seventeen authors, imagining life on the edge of our solar system. Hard lives, hard radiation and hard SF, it’s a 305-page collection about space exploration and the future of humanity.
