Released! Strange Horizons Ebook - Get Your Free Sample!

Some years ago, back around the dot-com and Y2K days, I wrote a nationally syndicated column called Strange Horizons. The tone and topics of Strange Horizons should seem familiar if you've been reading this blog. In fact, without me consciously realizing it, Behind the Lines quickly became a shorter, resurrected form of Strange Horizons.

The score of topics covered in Strange Horizons Retrospective, Volume 1 sat at the intersection of cutting edge science and speculative fiction when I wrote about them over a decade ago. Today, it's fascinating to see which of those ideas came to pass, which did not, and which are still in progress. Thus I've written a new "Update" section for each chapter, detailing the latest news and thoughts within that field.

The 21-chapter ebook is now on sale for only 99 cents at Smashwords. That's well over 40,000 words and many hours of thought provocation for about the price of a candy bar. If you'd like to take the text for a no-strings-attached spin, try the free sample version. Either way, your feedback would be greatly appreciated, so please don't hesitate to comment!
