The latest anthology in The Future Chronicles line is now up for pre-order at Amazon, and you might even note my name gracing the cover (and alongside Hugo award winner Ken Liu, and Alfie Award-winner Annie Bellet)!
The Cyborg Chronicles is, for a limited time, only $1.99 so be sure to act fast. And if you're in the mood for more be sure to check out the rest of The Future Chronicles titles. A few of them are still on sale for only $1.99 as well, but there's no telling how long that will last.
My short-story, Preservation, is set in the DRMR world established in my two cyberpunk novels, Convergence and Emergence. Neither are required reading, as Preservation is meant to be read as a complete stand-alone story with all-new characters in an all-new setting. If you've not read either of my novels, this short story will be a good starting place. If you're looking to get a jump-start on the DRMR books, though, feel free to grab those books now (or check back next week for a special Black Friday deal on Convergence).
Here's the synopsis of Preservation:
Kari Akagi is ex-British Special Forces, augmented by her government to be the prime soldier. In the wake of a devastating attack that cost her her legs, she has a new mission – protecting South Africa’s endangered species as a ranger for the Kruger National Park game reserve.
And here's a look at the not final cover (stay tuned for the final one!):
About The Cyborg Chronicles
"The best place to discover new SF authors, I think, is any of the anthologies coming from Samuel Peralta"-- Hugh Howey, NY Times bestselling author of Wool
Cyborgs. Part-robot, part-human. Even now, with our pacemakers, our holographic eyewear, our cybernetic limbs, it is difficult to deny that we are approaching an age when the line between humankind and machine is beginning to blur.
In the age of the cybernetic organism, the post-human being, in a world when your humanity can be measured by the number of electro-mechanical components that have replaced your biological limbs, what will be the measure of a man?
The Cyborg Chronicles features stories by Hugo Award-winner Ken Liu (The Grace of Kings) USA Today bestselling author and Alfie Award-winner Annie Bellet (Twenty-Sided Sorceress) and ten more of today's top speculative fiction writers.
