Short stories have a great history in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and other speculative fiction, with some of the greatest writers of all time like Ray Bradbury and Edgar Allen Poe mainly writing short stories! We've been fans of great short stories ever since we first read them and we publish the best around in our anthologies.
Some anthos are set in common story worlds such as the Terraformed Interplanetary Series, some follow themes (Beatitudes and Woes), and some we publish are based solely on the excellence of the stories submitted (Mythic Orbits series).
Weinbaum's worlds are eight tales of action, adventure, and alien discovery that revolve around the planets and moons of New Sol, a system redder and more compact than our own, but much like how our Solar System was imagined in the 1930s. We've updated Stanley G. Weinbaum's original science fiction short stories into a new setting, a system where his dreams really could take place, not too different from how he first wrote them, in the not-so-distant future.
Courage in the face of suffering, persecution, unexpected loss, self-sacrifice, joy in spite of circumstances, tears suppressed and expressed, love from the heart, kindness shown to friends and strangers, a monster slain, an alien plague, high adventure, a comedic hero finally taking a stand, a lost love found, and much more are featured in these tales.
