The theme of this anthology is to imagine what may occur to someone AFTER they have died.
As of my final selection earlier this week, there totaled 364 submissions. There were so many brilliant and well-written ideas that it was agonizing to only be able to select a handful. I wish I could include many more authors, but space was limited. As it is, I grew the project larger than originally planned. Of the afore-mentioned stories, six were by invitation and the remaining selected through open call. The book comes out to about 115,000 words of all new and original fiction!

Every story will be custom illustrated by Audra Phillips,

Publication is on schedule for Spring (March/ April) 2013 through Dark Moon Books.

Thank you, again, to all who submitted — I truly enjoyed reading every story.

Keep writing!
