I have a new story out today in Tales From the Canyons of the Damned, No. 25. Brethren is prologue of sorts to my Starship Gilead series, and features the very first public appearance of the starship in a tale about the trouble with utopias, religious fanaticism, and duty. The story also contains some hints about the supernatural enemy that will be the main villain of the Starship Gilead series.
This twenty-fifth issue of Tales from the Canyons of the Damned consists of four sharp, suspenseful, thought provoking short stories-each from a different featured master of speculative fiction.
Exodus Sol–P.K. Tyler
Deep Throw 1–Terry R. Hill
Brethren–Kevin G. Summers
Off-World Kick Murder Squad V–Daniel Arthur Smith
Tales from the Canyons of the Damned (canyonsofthedamned.com) is a dark science fiction, horror, & slipstream magazine we’ve been working on since 2015. What is Dark Science Fiction and Horror? Think of it as a literary Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, or Outer Limits, it’s Netflix’s Black Mirror and Amazon’s Electric Dreams in the short story format. And it’s a bargain. Each monthly issue has three-to-five sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales from today’s top speculative fiction writers.
These are Dark Sci Fi Slipstream Tales like you’ve never read before.
