The new anthology My Battery is Low and it is Getting Dark, published by Zombies Need Brains, LLC, is now available, and includes my story, “Beneath the Pall,” which is about…um…a lonely submarine? More or less?
Zombies Need Brains, run by my fellow DAW Books author Joshua Palmatier, has Kickstarted several anthologies over the past few years. His success was part of the inspiration for my successful Kickstarting of the anthology Shapers of Worlds, featuring authors who were guests of the first year of my podcast, The Worldshapers, which is now in the works.
Here’s the Amazon preview, with a handy Buy button!
Here’s the blurb:
A military attack drone turned shepherd. A train on the London Underground evolving into something new and wondrous. A troupe of robotic actors struggling to find meaning when the audience has disappeared. Explore the myriad ideas of what happens when out-of-date and abandoned technologies are given a second life—one that takes them in a new direction, far outside their intended programming and beyond their original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.
MY BATTERY IS LOW AND IT IS GETTING DARK features fourteen stories of quiet hope, heartbreak, creation, and death from fantasy and science fiction authors Dana Berube, Merc Fenn Wolfmoor, Jacey Bedford, Anthony Lowe, Chris Kocher, Brian Hugenbruch, William Leisner, José Pablo Iriarte, Alethea Kontis, Kari Sperring, Edward Willett, John G. Hartness, Alexander Gideon, and Stephen Leigh. You may never look at your smart speaker the same way again.
