Zombies Need Brains announces their Year Ten anthologies! If you’ve ever backed one of their projects, you know they consistently produce mind-expanding fantasy and science fiction stories from some of the most widely-read names in speculative fiction, and the new books will keep that tradition going. In the past they’ve published Submerged (stories on and in the ocean), My Battery Is Low and It Is Getting Dark (what happens when out-of-date and abandoned technologies are given a second life—one that takes them in a new direction, far outside their intended programming and beyond their original purpose), Temporally Deactivated (defying time and warping space) and The Modern Deity’s Guide to Surviving Humanity (gods and goddesses adapting to the surge in technology and the mercurial beliefs of humanity) and so many others.
But let me tempt you a little…if you join the fun and back the project today, ZNB will offer these four exciting titles to their lineup:
Dragonesque, stories from the dragon’s point of view, featuring Barbara Ashford, David B. Coe, Esther M. Friesner and more
Game On!, unique science fiction and fantasy takes on games, game playing, and games in culture, by Aliette de Bodard, Cat Rambo, Ed Greenwood, and others
Solar Flare, envisioning a future where humanity has embraced the Earth and learned to co-exist with it, not simply on it, with authors Nicole Givens Kurtz, Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, Gail Z. Martin & Larry N. Martin among others
Artifice and Craft, tales of works of art that have been enchanted, hexed, charmed, or cursed featuring Alex Bledsoe, C.E. Murphy, Catherynne M. Valente and more.
And if you’re a writer yourself, even if you’ve never sold a story anywhere before, ZNB always hosts an open call to their successfully funded anthologies, so you could very well find yourself among the illustrious company listed above.
There are extra-special pledge levels and backer rewards included, too many to list here. So check out the project on Kickstarter by clicking here. But the stories, the extras, the open call…none of it will happen if the project doesn’t meet its goal. Join the fun today – the clock is counting down!
