Publishers Weekly Reviews Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and Beyond

PW reviewed the Mothership anthology with a shout out to yours truly, which just about made my month. They had kind words for “The Taken” one of the stories in the mosaic novel, R/evolution.

Beyond all that though I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the stories in this anthology: 40 multicultural tales of sci fi, horror, and fantasy compiled by editors Edward Austin Hall and Bill Campbell. I’m a big fan of spec fic tomes with something for everyone, and this particular one looks to be just that. It’s out now.

“Only Then Can I Sleep” Available in Love and Darker Passions

Double Dragon has just released the Love and Darker Passions anthology.

Love and Darker Passions is a collection of provocative short stories by today’s up-and-coming authors of dark, urban and Gothic fantasy. One man falls in love with an ancient monster, another becomes enchanted by a voice that drives him to a frenzy of self-punishment, and another can’t understand three very odd days he’s spending with his girlfriend. Award-winning author Karen Duvall sends a Millennial Alice through a very different looking glass, and acclaimed author Lee Barwood sends the Sighted bard of her upcoming series into the passionate world of faerie to find a child and a special destiny. Bestseller C.E. Murphy makes her twisted fairytale tell what drives a lover into the arms of her questionable beloved, and Tenea D. Johnson works a soul-stealing spell of magic. In Love and Darker Passions, edgy and cult fantasy authors combine their talents to make us question what inspires love, why we crave revenge against those who’ve stolen love from us, and why we despair when love’s pain is lost.
