I’ve been really wanting to share the news, but had to wait a few weeks before I could make this announcement (the editors didn’t want authors to say anything until they had the T.O.C. down) – but now I can and there’s even a cover to go with it.
Introducing Futuredaze: An Anthology of YA Science Fiction, edited by Hannah Strom-Martin and Erin Underwood. The book (print and ebook) will be available from Underwords in February 2013. The authors are all listed below.
The fabulous cover is by Deena Warner of Deena Warner Designs
Underwords is a popular fiction literary blog that focuses on books, writing, publishers, authors, and readers. They say all genres are potential food for thought, but that Underwords has a preference for science fiction, fantasy, horror, young adult, and interstitial literature.
I am thrilled and honoured that my short story String Theory will be among the chosen works in this anthology!
I haven’t had many short stories published (might have something to do with not submitting many short stories for publication). Weird Year published another quirky sci fi (of sorts) story of mine called Al’s Hat a few years back.
I’m drawn more and more to the short story format — first because of the discipline of it, but also because I can write, edit, germinate, and review on a smaller scale. It’s refreshing.

For those of you interested in publishing short fiction, I highly recommend signing up for Duotrope’s enewsletter and cruising their website. Duotrope is how I found out about the call for this anthology.
The site offers an extensive, searchable database of current fiction, poetry, and non-fiction markets (genre and mainstream). There’s also a calendar of upcoming deadlines, submissions trackers (for registered users), and other nifty stuff.
And while it’s a FREE service, if you like it and use it, there is a way to donate to keep them running.
Congrats to all the authors in this anthology! I’m very excited to see the final product.
