Sojourn: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction

( 12 )

Overview

The moon's rings illuminate the desert path before you. Up ahead a ridge rises, obscuring the horizon. You cannot go back. There is nothing to go back to. A hundred worlds lie behind you and a thousand more lie ahead. You smell smoke in the air and hear a hint of music somewhere far away. One foot after another, you head toward the horizon, beckoned by the mystery of what lies beyond.

The fifteen stories in this collection portray remarkable worlds for you to visit. These are ...

Overview

The moon's rings illuminate the desert path before you. Up ahead a ridge rises, obscuring the horizon. You cannot go back. There is nothing to go back to. A hundred worlds lie behind you and a thousand more lie ahead. You smell smoke in the air and hear a hint of music somewhere far away. One foot after another, you head toward the horizon, beckoned by the mystery of what lies beyond.

The fifteen stories in this collection portray remarkable worlds for you to visit. These are worlds unlike our own - worlds where a pastor attends the 68th Periodic Interspecies Theologians' Conference; worlds where a boy goes on a spiritual journey in the mists of prehistory; worlds where humans are enslaved and one freed woman will do whatever it takes to save her species; worlds where humans, zombies, and vampires rub elbows in the office. We invite you on your own journey in the pages of Sojourn: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction, penned by the talented storytellers of the Fear the Boot podcast community. Some of these worlds will feel familiar, some will feel alien, and a few may entice you to sojourn just a bit longer. Within these pages, you will find stories by new and established writers alike. Authors include:

• Laura K. Anderson
• Thomas Childress
• Wayne Cole
• Hans Cummings
• Shannon Dickson
• Matt Forbeck
• Robert Freund
• Chris Hussey
• James Lowder
• Johann Luebbering
• Peter Martin
• Ryan J. McDaniel
• Tom McNeil
• Dan Repperger
• Elizabeth Roper

    I am generally not a great lover of anthologies. I made an exception for this title and did not regret it. Each story follows a theme so perfectly and in a completely different way. I was particularly impressed with the tale told by Elizabeth Roper and how it perfectly bridges the gap between fantasy, history, and science fiction. Thank you all for your efforts and I hope to see more soon!

    A wonderful anthology by a group of new authors. This book runs the gamut of science fiction. If your looking for a books to try out different scifi themes this is the book for you. There are a few names you'll recognize here. Matt Forbeck has a good story. I can't wait for Sojourn 2. Short stories are becoming more popular and this book is a good example of why.

    Sojourn is a special anthology, inasmuch as each short story offers something so vastly different and incredibly entertaining. I will continue coming back to these stories again and again, and I'll thoroughly enjoy my sojourn each and every time.

    The depth of this collection is matched only by the talent of its authors.

    An anthology by a group of both new and established authors. The stories range from the sublime to the ridiculous, and all are well written.

    I was really intrigued by the mix of social, political and spiritual investigation into urban fantasy and science fiction settings. I really loved almost every story in this anthology and wanted more than where it left off. There were one or two stories that didn't really hit it for me but honestly that's true in any anthology I read. I will definitely be giving this a second or third read through.

    There is a wide spectrum of stories in this collection, both in subject matter and quality. For an amateur collection it's pretty good. A couple of the stories could have been dropped, but for the most part I enjoyed the book. I'll probably pick up the next one they put out.

    This is a wonderful collection of shorts stories detailing worlds that are not too far off from our own, albeit at varying times in the history of our universe. If you love reading about new worlds and ideas and settings, this is a must read. Each story is crafted with a love that can only come from someone who loves the art of writing. I cannot express in words how wonderful it was to traipse though the imaginings of such creative people. I cannot wait for the next installment!
