Now, I love all the anthologies John has done so far, from the small SEEDS OF CHANGE one, which I still recommend you read, to the much larger WASTELANDS and THE LIVING DEAD. But what's coming out in May is even more interesting...
It is an incredible anthology composed of reprints and original stories from some wonderful authors. It takes the concept of interstellar societies and "federations", and explores it in new and unique ways. It's a mix of fine writing, even better storytelling, and the classic space stuff that we have loved since Star Trek and Star Wars first came about.
And Wil Wheaton likes it. How much more geek cred can a book get, if it's liked by Wil Wheaton? =)
You can pre-order your copy from Amazon NOW. I highly recommend it. It's good. It's worth it. You'll want to read it.
Coming April 2009.
