I’ve always enjoyed reading noir fiction and cyberpunk – so I was excited to find out Switchblade magazine wanted stories for a new anthology called Switchblade: Tech Noir. I was even more excited when my story Bad Score was among the ten tales selected by the editor, Scotch Rutherford.
Bad Score is a mix of hard-boiled crime story and dystopian SF, set in an America where cybernetic advancements have not created a perfect future.
The other contributors to the anthology are Callum McSorley, James Edward O’Brien, Mandi Jourdan, Hugh Lessig, Rob D. Smith, Matt Gomez, Nick Kolakowski, Eric Beetner and Alec Cizak.
Hi. It’s been a while since I updated my blog. I’ve been busy working on two new SF short story collections, which I’m happy to say have just been released as ebooks: Strange Blue World and Future Imperfect.
Future Imperfect is a collection of eight science-fiction short stories set in the far future. It includes five tales previously published in anthologies and three new ones exclusive to this SF book.
We all live on one strange blue world called Earth. This collection of SF is set on Earth – but not necessarily our Earth. This book contains a wide range of speculative fiction, including short stories about parallel universes, artificial intelligence, steampunk societies, alternate histories and many other science-fiction topics. Strange Blue World explores our planet in nineteen short stories for fans of quirky collections of science fiction.
I’m happy to announce one of my short stories will be in a new steampunk anthology called Clockwork Cairo, released on May 28th. Clockwork Cairo is a collection of Egyptian-themed steampunk that includes twenty stories.
Here’s a list of the contributors:
Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine
John Moralee (me!)
E. Catherine Tobler
K. Tempest Bradford
