THE STREET IS UNLIKE ANY OTHER

- Darvolock is the potential Panama Canal of space, if only its inhabitants would share. But how do you negotiate a treaty with plants?
- Human females do not die in childbirth. How strange. How troubling. Ribolee's friend Siluone is about to die birthing many young oelene, a time of great celebration. And alone among her people, Ribolee feels a sense of loss.
- In the post-apocalyptic New West, Corporations enforce their control of the food supply with war machines; and a veteran priest, his western heroine dirigible AI, and their mechanical bees seek crops to pollinate and villagers to serve.

Third & Starlight is just that—a familiar yet sumptuous melting pot of unique speculative fiction flavors to entice all the literary senses.
In one of my favorite stories—and there are many—Jennifer Campbell-Hicks and Nick Tchan’s collaboration (Another blend!) fuses religion with artificial intelligence in a post-American future in “The Temptation of Father Francis.” The wild west-slanted personal assistant AI and the young ex-military priest in search of faith make a unique pair (yet another blend!) in this uncertain future, where food is scarce and oppression is rampant.
Magic and mayhem flavor other stories in this anthology, and another pleasing yarn, “Shattered Vessels,” by Kary English and Robert Finegold, deliver in a big way. Their tale is steeped in Jewish mysticism, combining elements of the Kabbalah and fantasy in a rich tapestry fraught with love and loss.
So stop salivating! Pick up a copy of Third & Starlight and commence on a journey that combines the familiar with the new into a most wondrous prism of spec fiction on the market today, written by a host of award-winning authors.
