January isn’t even over yet, and here’s another publication for you. Available online through Amazon or Createspace, this Year One anthology reprints one story hand picked by the editors to represent each month of their first year. My Urban/Sci-Fi story “Deacon Carter’s Last Dime,” inspired in equal parts by the music of Gil Scott-Heron and the short fiction of Ray Bradbury, even got the back cover blurb.
I’ve been reading my way through my contributor’s copy, and am greatly enjoying it. Of particular note, fellow Seattle writers and friends Jeremy Zimmerman’s “Crazy Kind of Love” and Jennifer D. Munroe’s “The Strangler’s Fig” are a delight. The three of us will be celebrating the anthology’s February 1st release with absinthe next week.
