Michael Z. Williamson, friend, author, and scourge of the politically correct, has released the line-up of stories and writers for his forthcoming anthology, to be published next year. Therefore, I can now confirm that I'm one of them.
In a Facebook post, Mike said:
The Freehold anthology will look like this:
The Tachi, Zachary Hill
Musings of a Hermit, Larry Correia
Stronger than Steel, Mike Massa
He Who Lives Wins, John F. Holmes
Souvenirs, Rob Reed
Broken Spirit, Michael Z. Williamson and Dale Flowers
Okoyukki, Tom Kratman
The Day The Tide Rolled In, Michael Z. Williamson and Leo Champion
Ripper, Peter Grant
Case Hardened, Chris Smith
Magnum Opus, Jason Cordova
Virgins, Tony Daniel
The Reluctant Heroine, Michael Z. Williamson
The Thin Green Line, Michael Z. Williamson
Family Over Blood, Kacey Ezell
Choices and Consequences, Michael Z. Williamson
Briefly, the anthology will follow the adventures of multiple owners of Kendra Pacelli's sword, which she used to good effect as the heroine of Mike's well-known debut novel, Freehold.
The stories will begin in the samurai era in Japan, and range forward until several centuries after the events in Freehold, covering a span of a couple of thousand years. Each story will focus on one owner of the sword, and one of their adventures.
I won't give away any spoilers, but my story (set in the future) draws heavily on my African background in terms of a danger not always thought of in the context of science fiction. I had a lot of fun writing it, and I hope you'll have at least as much fun reading it when the anthology is published.
As for being in the same anthology as Larry Correia, and Tom Kratman, and Mike Williamson, and . . . and . . .
SQUEEEEE! Color me excited!
EDITED TO ADD: If you haven't read Freehold, the e-book is free to download from Amazon or the Baen Free Library. It's a good read.
