Human settlement in the harshest of places. The Avenir: once a generational ship, now a crowded residential station and dominating force over a hard, broken world. Its people have nearly forgotten distant Earth, its wizards ponder the mysteries of the universe, its orphans suffer and beg, while the aristocrats live the high life. Eclectia: the highly unstable planet far below, pulled by its heavy moons into a fast wobble, its crust fractured and tormented with frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Miners and bug hunters eke out an existence through the grit and extreme seasons. The lucky ones live in undersea colonies, where submarines connect cities in the depths. The oceans teem with telepathic life everyone calls "angels." Sheba and Quatermain, the fractured and molten moons of Eclectia, are settled by miners and spacers, while merchants and smugglers ply their trades. For most, survival is an everyday question. Multi-author microfiction gives a many-faceted view of the future. New stories continue to be posted online at the Avenir Eclectia site.
Intrigued yet? Click Here to order Avenir Eclectia Volume I from Amazon, and be sure to spread the word around the web! (Word of mouth is great, too!) And of course, once you've read it, be sure to post your reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and wherever else you'd like! I'm so excited about this. I've published several times before, but always online, never in print, and never in an anthology. So I'm very, very happy to be a part of this project!
We'll be talking more about it here at the Lair later on this month (maybe even holding a giveaway?), discussing it with a few of the other authors, and of course I'll be sharing my thoughts about it too.
But all of that will mean very little if you haven't actually read the book, so get thee over to Amazon with all haste and order yourself a copy!
