I’m very excited to report that I’ve sold a new short story “Conquistadors” to the upcoming Rocket Science anthology!
Rocket Science is an anthology of realistic and authentic hard science fiction stories and non-fiction articles which depict space travel and its hazards. The book is edited by Ian Sales and due to be published in April 2012 by Mutation Press.
My story “Conquistadors” is about the exploration and commercial exploitation of a near-Earth asteroid. I really enjoyed researching the realities of space travel, and I’m sure it will help me with other stories in future.
Many thanks to Ian Sales for letting my story in through the Rocket Science airlock! There’s a constellation of talented and interesting writers confirmed in the anthology table of contents, and it promises to be a great book. I’m looking forward to getting a freshly-printed copy and meeting other contributors at the launch event at Eastercon, Olympus 2012.
Ian is maintaining a Rocket Science News blog about the development of the anthology, which is fascinating reading for anyone interested in sf writing and publishing.
