OBSOLESCENCE, a new anthology from Shortwave Publishing, is now available to read!
I am delighted to announce that OBSOLESCENCE, the dark sci-fi, fantasy, and horror anthology created by Shortwave Publishing and edited by Alan Lastufka and Kristina Horner, is now available for everyone to purchase and/or read!
If you backed the anthology on Kickstarter, you already know how good it is.
I got an advance copy, and I already know how good it is – especially the story about the news startup that decides to allow readers to vote on how truthful its articles are (and the readers who immediately use this power to upvote the articles they want to be true).
I didn't write that one, but I wish I had – and yet the story I did write, a linguistic horror story called "Planned Obsolescence," is so different from anything I've ever written that you'll want to read it just to see what I did.
(And then you'll want to read it again. Trust me.)
OBSOLESCENCE: A Dark Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Anthology
OBSOLESCENCE is a collection of new short stories about horrifying or fantastical interactions with technology.
All leaps in technology are scary. Mysterious. Misunderstood. Until they slowly creep into our daily lives and become impossible to get rid of. Like an evolving parasite.
The broken cell phone that can only text with your dead husband. The backyard tire swing that becomes a portal to another world. The Radio Shack Walkie-Talkies that pick up an alien GPS…
In OBSOLESCENCE, technology gets repurposed, subverted, and redefined.
