Astounding Frontiers Issue #4 Out Now

 

Astounding Frontiers Issue 4 is now available for purchase on Amazon, featuring stories by Brian Niemeier, Julie Frost, David Hallquist, Ben Wheeler and Corey McCleery and an article from the Professor of Pulp himself, Jeffro Johnson! Suit up and enjoy!

A mixup at Amazon has linked hardback copies of the old pulp sci fi magazine Astounding to the Kindle version of this issue. That error is being dealt with, so paperback copies will soon become available.

Songs Now Available for Purchase

Both versions of the song ‘A Tale of the Once and Future King’ are now available for purchase at my cdbaby.com artist page for only 99 cents each. They can both be found by clicking the image below:

In time they should also become available from other online music stores. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did creating them, and they help to prepare the audience for Anthony Marchetta’s upcoming masterpiece.

Astounding Frontiers Coming Soon!

As if the new version of Sci Phi Journal wasn’t enough, in just three days Superversive Press is going to launch the new Space Opera/Space Romance/Pulp magazine Astounding Frontiers, featuring serialized stories by not one but two Dragon Award winners:

Nowhither, the long-awaited sequel to John C. Wright’s Dragon Award-winning Somewhither,

and

Galactic Outlaws by Nick Cole and Jason Anspach, Book Two in the Galaxy’s Edge series (Book One being Amazon bestseller Legionnaire)

besides many more fun and imaginative stories by a variety of talented authors, both established and new talent.

Watch out for it, and spread the word!

Do You See the Crystal Spire?

With the imminent release on Thursday 15th June by Superversive Press of Jon del Arroz’ second novel For Steam and Country, I have dared to produce a promotional video to capture its epicness, with some capable help from Sean McCleery and Shawn King.

Do You See the Crystal Spire?

Do you see the Crystal Spire
That adorns Rislandia?
You’ll want to join the Crystal Knights
To guard her land, her sea, her air.

When the beating of your heart
Echoes the thundering of the guns,
Then you’ll be sure to play your part
When the battle comes.

The invading Wyranth soldiers’ eyes
Emit an eerie glow;
The ground is shaken by a force
Whose source you’d like to know;
So now climb up this rope,
Renew your old hope as we go!

Do you hear the turbines roar
As we soar into the sky?
This great airship offers more
Than just a simple earthbound life.

When the fire within your heart
Mirrors the glorious setting sun,
Then you’ll be sure to play your part
When adventure comes.

The book is currently available for preorder at the bitly shortlink given in the video, but Jon would prefer people to buy on the release date itself so as to maximise the Amazon ranking on day 1, meaning the book becomes more visible within Amazon’s maze of recommendation algorithms.

Doctor to Dragons is Launched

A new hilarious collection of short stories by G.Scott Huggins (which I edited) has been released today by Superversive Press:

The Dark Lord’s favorite dragon is constipated. Dr. James DeGrande, veterinarian and orc-slayer, is going to have to deal with it.

This one could get messy.

“Everyone says it was better in the Good Old Days. Before the Dark Lord covered the land in His Second Darkness.

As far as I can tell, it wasn’t that much better. Even then, everyone cheered the heroes who rode unicorns into combat against dragons, but no one ever remembered who treated the unicorns’ phosphine burns afterward. Of course, that was when dragons were something to be killed. Today I have to save one. Know what fewmets are? No? Then make a sacrifice of thanks right now to whatever gods you worship, because today I have to figure a way to get them flowing back out of the Dark Lord’s favorite dragon. Yeah, from the other end. And that’s just my most illustrious client. I’ve got orcs and trolls who might eat me and dark elf barons who might sue me if their bloodhawks and chimeras don’t pull through. And that doesn’t even consider the possibility that the old bag with the basilisk might show up.

The only thing that’s gone right this evening is finding Harriet to be my veterinary assistant. She’s almost a witch, which just might save us both. If we don’t get each other killed first.”

If that wasn’t enough, here is a promotional video (thought up during a sleep-deprived creative frenzy) that inflicts my vocal stylings upon your ears, and I must warn you it shall not be the last such torture to accompany a book launch, so be afraid!
