New Charity Steampunk Anthology, Some Time Later

We are excited to announce our next charity steampunk anthology, Some Time Later: Fantastic Voyages in Alternate Worlds, available soon through booksellers in print and ebook editions and at Clockwork Alchemy 2017.

Created by returning anthology editors AJ Sikes, BJ Sikes, and Dover Whitecliff, Some Time Later includes two new stories each from fifteen authors including Harry Turtledove, Kirsten Weiss, Anthony Francis, David L. Drake and Katherine L. Morse, Sharon E. Cathcart, T.E. MacArthur, and more.  Fifty percent of the proceeds will be donated to public libraries.

Join us on a journey through time and genre:

  • Take a tour of Jolly Olde London, where madness may (or may not) prevail and things can get hairy after dark!
  • Take an airship to the ancient city of Atlantis!
  • Battle demons! Match wits with mystics! Try to resist the seductive power of chocolate or the magic of tiny mushrooms!
  • Maybe even steal a treasure from a dragon!

So put the kettle on, pour a strong cuppa, and curl up on the couch for a rollicking good read with Some Time Later.

To order a copy of Some Time Later that you can pick up at Clockwork Alchemy, contact anthony@ThinkingInkPress.com.

Praise for Beyond the Fence
“The stories in Marilyn Horn’s Beyond the Fence are strange. But the strangeness is just one of their charms, for by the time we’re exiting the stories, the strange has come to seem familiar—even ordinary. This is a testament to Horn’s powers as a storyteller. She creates worlds in which talking dolphins and soul DNA and attic monsters are both astonishing and commonplace.
This book is a pleasure all the way through.”
—Charles Rafferty, Director of MFA Program, Albertus Magnus College

About Sibling Rivalry
Written by a PhD in artificial intelligence, “Sibling Rivalry” tells the story of the Nicole AI system, the most advanced artificial intelligence ever created … until today. Confronted with a newer, better sibling designed to replace her, Nicole decides that instead of becoming an obsolete brain in a box, she’d rather become an unstoppable killer. With his team, and perhaps the entire building, dead, Nicole’s designer is trapped in a battle of wits with his own creation. Attempt after attempt fails, and with his oxygen running out, Nicole’s designer finds himself running a deadly race with Nicole … to see who can stop whose weak heart first.

“Sibling Rivalry” was Epic award-winning author Anthony Francis’s first publication, appearing in The Leading Edge magazine in 1995. Thinking Ink Press is proud to bring this classic science fiction story back into print in Snapbook and e-book form.
