Pre Pub Book Buzz: Clockwork Universe: Steampunk vs Aliens

This is the current cover mockup
So this one is a bit far out there - it's due out end of May 2014 - but it's such a cool project that I wanted to highlight it today.

This is to be the first anthology from the newly created Zombies Need Brains, LLC. Their initial focus for now are sci fi and fantasy anthologies (which I love) that will be funded by Kickstarters. This first has already met its goal but is still open until August 16 (so if you take part now you're basically pre ordering the anthology but also funding cool extra stuff for the new publishing company. Here's the link to their Kickstarter if you're interested.

And here's a bit about this super cool anthology:

...a science fiction and fantasy anthology titled CLOCKWORK UNIVERSE: STEAMPUNK vs. ALIENS, containing approximately 14 all-original (no reprint) short stories from established SF&F authors in the field—including Bradley Beaulieu, Caitlin Kittredge, Gini Koch, Scott Lynch, Gail Z. Martin, Seanan McGuire, and Ian Tregillis, plus others. The book will be edited by Patricia Bray and Joshua Palmatier, both editors of the DAW Books anthologies After Hours: Tales from the Ur-bar and The Modern Fae’s Guide to Surviving Humanity.

If you're a fan of sci fi and fantasy, if you love the authors listed above, if you're interested in helping out a new publisher with a super cool idea, or if you love anthologies and discovering new writers, check out the Kickstarter and go ahead and pre order the book! As I said, it's already met it's goal (and I'm definitely looking forward to my copy and whatever else Zombies Need Brains does in the future).
