I think I mentioned some news on the short fiction front, and here is the first of three that I can announce. I have a story, Digital Salt, in the forthcoming Night, Rain, and Neon anthology published by NewCon Press.
The story has some parallels to Repo Virtual, so if you wanted something new in a similar vein, this might tide you over, or if you wanted a slab of new cyberpunk from a bunch of fantastic writers, you could do much worse than this anthology.
From the preorder page:
Released on July 1st 2022, to coincide with the date William Gibson’s genre-defining novel Neuromancer was originally released in 1984, Night, Rain, and Neon is a collection of all new stories written by some of the sharpest and most insightful authors of cyberpunk and post-cyberpunk fiction around, curated by editor Michael Cobley.“Back in the mid-80s William Gibson remarked that at one point he saw science fiction as a handy tool that he could use to pry open the cranium of the embryonic digital zeitgeist and do a bit of rewiring. Since then, numerous waves of tech, eco-awareness, politics, music, games, and smart gizmos (wearable and driveable) have washed over and through us. Our dwellings have gone from shells veined with broadband wiring to safehouses infused with plumes of wireless connection while our phones speak and ping and offer oblations to the greater networks that enfold us all.” – Michael CobleyCome see what the near future might hold…Contents:Introduction by Michael CobleyHello, Goodbye – Stewart HotstonFour Green Fields – Ian McDonaldAll The Precious Years – Al RobertsonForever in Scotland – Callum McSorleyAssets – Keith Brooke & Eric BrownThe Still Small Voice – Louise CareyMindstrings – Jeremy SzalTabula Rasa – Danie WareCollision Detection – Tim MaughanWe Appreciate Power – Gavin SmithA Game Of Clones – Justina RobsonAccumulated Damage – Simon MordenThe Thirteenth Clone Of Casimir Ivanovitch – Jon Courtenay GrimwoodElijah Of The 1000 Faces – Gary GibsonVR Enclave – DA Xiaolin SpiresDigital Salt – Corey J WhiteTerms And Conditions – Joseph Elliott-ColemanThe Goruden-Mairu Job – T.R.
