The premise is that in a faraway star system, most of the last dregs of humanity live in a city encrusting an asteroid, The Island. Each of the authors tell a story set within, or sometimes just off, this setting. Clearly a lot of care and attention went into ensuring the authors had the freedom to explore, while putting it within a shared-world framework.
Some of my favourite authors have taken part in this anthology, and it’s great that they provide the recognisable anchor and association which helps readers discover others.
As a long-term fan of Robert M. Campbell, I was especially pleasantly surprised by his mischievous entry. He shows a talent for satire I haven’t seen in his work before. I love his Trajectory series, but it was great to read him having some fun with the anthology's premise.
Seasoned author Scott Moon’s story is both hear-warming and frantic. He excels at realistic and sympathetic characters, even within the tight word count of a short story.
Nathan Hystad of the Explorations Anthology series, covers a lot of ground in his thrilling work - with a mystery which rapidly grows into the seeds of rebellion.
There are many other great entries which have prompted me to look up the writer’s other works. Of special note, Jane Jago’s Sam Nero – PI is a perfectly nailed noir story. Chris Guillory’s Emissary, a story about a washed-up cop is awesome and extremely well-written.
Overall, a fantastic collection from a new publishing house with some great authors.
