LATE-BREAKING NEWS

As part of a somewhat expensive Amazon ad campaign, we've dropped the price on The Fugitive Heir to $0.99. If this leads to better follow-on sales of The Fugitive Pair and The Fugitive Snare, we'll leave it at this price. C'mon, buy the complete set!

• All current issues of Stupefying Stories are now available free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. See the right column for links. For non-US customers, these should automatically redirect to your local manifestation of Amazon. If they don't, let me know.

BOOK RELEASE: FIVE STARS


Title: FIVE STARS: Five Outstanding Tales from the early days of STUPEFYING STORIES
Contributors: Aaron Bradford Starr, Rebecca Roland, Guy Stewart, David W. Landrum, Ryan M. Jones
Editor: Bruce Bethke
ISBN: 978-1-938834-35-6 (print edition)
ISBN: 978-1-938834-34-9 (ebook edition)  

FIVE STARS is the new STUPEFYING STORIES sampler package.* These five carefully selected tales from our earliest issues are all outstanding examples of the kinds of stories we're looking for, because these are the kinds of stories we love to publish. Sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, sometimes brimming over with adventure and excitement and other times simply dripping with terror, these are the sorts of stories that made us fall in love with fiction in the first place, back when we were reading just for the fun of it, and long before we ever dreamed of becoming professional writers or editors.

Whether you're a new friend who's wondering whether to start following STUPEFYING STORIES, an aspiring contributor who's wondering what sort of stories we'd like to see, or an old friend who just happened to miss these tales the first time around, check out FIVE STARS.

Featuring:
  • "First Impressions" by Aaron Bradford Starr
  • "Sennacherib" by David W. Landrum
  • "Teaching Women to Fly" by Guy Stewart
  • "The King of Ash and Bones" by Rebecca Roland
  • "Return to Earth" by Ryan M. Jones

* Personally, I think of FIVE STARS as our Greatest Hits EP, but whenever I say that, I end up having to explain what EPs were, which always segues into a discussion of my theory that short stories are the Top 40 hit singles of the literary world, and pretty soon we've gone so far off-topic that we've completely lost the trail of breadcrumbs and that dicey-looking gingerbread cottage is beginning to look like an attractive place to bed down for the night. It's a sampler, okay?
