New Anthology Release: Flight

front-cover

Blurb:

A 300-word story should be easy, right? Many of our entrants say it’s the hardest thing they’ve ever written.

Queer Sci Fi’s Annual Flash Fiction Contest challenges authors to write a complete LGBTQ speculative fiction micro-story on a specific theme. “Flight” leaves much for the authors to interpret—winged creatures, flight and space vehicles, or fleeing from dire circumstances.

Some astonishing stories were submitted—from horrific, bloodcurdling pieces to sweet, contemplative ones—and all LGBTQ speculative fiction. The stories in this anthology include AI’s and angels, winged lions and wayward aliens. Smart, snappy slice of life pieces written for entertainment or for social commentary. Join us for brief and often surprising trips into 110 speculative fiction authors’ minds.

Excerpt:

To Have and To Harm by Avery Dawes

I wouldn’t cry. No tears. No matter what. “You know it’s going to happen… I’m going to die and… ” I couldn’t finish the thought. My future: one of the living dead. “

Look, you never know… maybe the bite wasn’t that deep? Maybe those tough Italian genes can beat this.”

Top Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read

It’s Tuesday and time for another book list. Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for the topics and for hosting. I’ve really come to enjoy these posts. It sure is fun checking out what the other bloggers read and think (book-wise).

toptentuesday

The topic for this week’s post is “Ten Books I Will Probably Never Read.” I have to say that this is a tough one. I read a fair amount of books, and I go in phases about what I like (with respect to genre). I put some thought into this one, and only came up with six books.

What do you think? Did any of these books make your list?

Oh, I should mention that my list is more genre-based, and is not an attack against a particular author.

1. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. I don’t mind light BDSM, but my author friends who writeThe_Shining BDSM had nothing good to say about this one. I’m trusting their judgment!
2. The Shining by Stephen King (or really any Stephen King book because I’m not a horror fan at all). I’m not sure I’d be able to sleep after reading this book or watching the movie.
3. A Wicked Pursuit by Isabella Bradford. I’m not a fan of historical romance, especially those set in London. For some reason, I’ve never had an interest in these, and yes, I have tried.
4. Sword of Darkness by Kinley MacGregor. While I like Arthurian legend, I’m not a fan of fiction books revolving around King Arthur and his knights.
5. The Last Goodbye by Sarah Mayberry. Not usually into reading Harlequin serial romances. This is #30 in a series. Wow! Not so much my thing.
6. Console Wars by Blake J. Harris. I don’t typically read nonfiction unless I’m intrigued by a specific book (usually something history-related).

I’m sure there are others out there, but I couldn’t come up with any additional ones for my list. Maybe I’ll be able to make 10 on next week’s topics!!

If you’re interested in taking part in these posts, here’s a link to the topics and directions. Give it a shot–it sure is fun!
