My story “Amazons and Predators” was recently accepted for publication in the anthology Bad-Ass Faeries 3: In All Their Glory published by Mundania Press. My story asks the questions: What if the Amazons were a fae race, living in the mountains of Afghansistan? What if a missile from an unmanned Predator drone accidentally struck their home? You’ll be able to find the answers when the anthology comes out on May 30, 2010. I expect to have copies available at conventions later this year.
The Back Cover Text:
Think all faeries spend their days picking flowers and dancing in circles? Think again!
We bring you tales of urban conflict, of lurking assassins, of defenders of the homefront. Eternal battles…between good and evil, right and wrong, Seelie and Unseelie…fought by timeless warriors whose battle cries echo throughout both history and legend.
Discover fae fighting the good fight with every turned page. A WAC pilot and her leprechaun guardian get a bit of their own back in L. Jagi Lamplighter’s A Not-So-Silent Night. Refugee recruits from Daemor defend the base camp from gators and mongers in Patrick Thomas’s The Size of the Fight in the Solider. Elaine Corvidae treats us to a new glimpse of the realm of the Shadow Fae as an assassin stalks Pook, the Unseelie king on the Seelie throne, in Field of Honor. And in David Sherman’s The Price of Friendship a simple Nix gives Viking warriors a lesson in unconventional warfare. Each story in this collection follows a fine warrior—and fae—tradition. Protect your own, avenge your fallen, and put the bullies in their place. So get ready to declare your allegiance, because…
By Land, Air, or Sea, the battle lines are drawn…Which side are you on?
Table of Contents
I have to say, this looks like a great set of contributors. I’ve worked with a few of these folks in Tales of the Talisman Magazine, the Space Pirates anthology, and the forthcoming Space Horrors anthology. Without further ado, here’s a listing of the stories and authors you’ll find in the anthology:
Balticon Release Party
There will be a release party for Bad-Ass Faeries 3: In All Their Glory at Balticon in Baltimore, Maryland on May 30, 2010 from 7pm until 9pm in the Garden Room. There will be readings, refreshments and prizes. Unfortunately, because I got tagged for jury duty, which in turn made my observatory schedule complicated, I won’t be there in person. However, I did send along some fun prizes that you can win if you will be there. Also, a number of other contributors will be there. If you’re attending Balticon, hope you’ll go check it out!
