Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Years Best Military SFDavid Afsharirad is the editor of The Year’s Best Military SF & Space Opera, published by Baen Books. This is the first of an annual edition, and I’m very pleased and proud to report that two of my 2014 stories will be included:

* “Codename: Delphi” originally published at Lightspeed Magazine

and

* “Light and Shadow” originally published in the War Stories anthology.

Both stories are set in the story world of The Red, and “Codename: Delphi” features some of the same characters.

Publication date for the ebook is May 16, 2015, with the print book following on June 2, 2015.

War Stories Ebook Now Available

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

War Stories AnthologyWar Stories is an anthology of military science fiction. It began as a Kickstarter project, with the ebook released to project supporters earlier this summer. That ebook is now available for purchase from Apex Publications at a cost of $4.99USD.

My story, “Light and Shadow,” is part of War Stories. If you’d like to read the last of my short fiction that will see general publication this year, please go grab a copy. “Light and Shadow” is set in the story world of The Red: First Light although it’s a completely different story, with different characters.

There will be a print version of War Stories (trade paperback). Preorders are being taken now. If you preorder the paper edition, you’ll get the ebook as well, available for immediate download.

War Stories: preliminary coverI’ve just received the good news that my story “Light and Shadow” will be included in the anthology War Stories, edited by Jaym Gates and Andrew Liptak. Here’s the official announcement.

“Light and Shadow” is set in the story world of The Red, though it’s otherwise independent, with its own characters and a different writing style.

War Stories will soon be starting a Kickstarter campaign to fund the initial publication. I hope you’ll participate!
