“The Writers of the Future contest looks for people with the best imaginations who can see through the possibilities of the strangest and best ideas and tell stories that intrigue us and involve us.” —Orson Scott Card
Classic authors include: Clark Ashton Smith, John Buchan, Snorri Sturluson, Homer, A. Merritt, Geoffrey Chaucer, Andrew Lang, Howard Pyle, William Morris, Eric Rücker Eddison, with the text of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and extracts from Beowulf, The Nibelungenlied and The Song of Roland.
This anthology contains new time travel short stories, mixed with some of the best stories published this century, including New York Times best sellers, Nebula and Hugo nominated writers and winners, as well as some new talented authors (though, in our timeline they’re already best sellers).
Edited by Zach Chapman. Stories by Brian Trent, Catherine Wells, Sean Williams, Stewart C Baker, Robert Silverberg, HL Fullerton, Auston Habershaw, Brenda Anderson, SL Huang, Tony Pi, Steve Simpson, K Kazul Wolf, Rasheedah Phillips, Martin L Shoemaker, Alter Reiss, David Steffen, John A Frochio, Alisa Alering, Desmond Warzel, and Rosemary Claire Smith.
This anthology of twenty diverse stories from authors around the world shows us a future full of adventure, intrigue, fun, heart-ache, and wonder. Contestants go head-to-head in the supershark-infested waters of the Extreme Chess Olympiad! A wheelchair-bound girl is being stalked in the physical world by the victims of her online supremacy. A young Kurd has the cure for all the world’s ills, but only if she can convince a prominent politician to take her new prosocial regimen. Knowing next to nothing about our biology, a young alien ambassador hilariously attempts to provide care for a panda grown from raw genetic samples. A new implant allows an autistic girl to communicate with those around her through music, but this huge leap forward in medicine is not without consequences. And many more.
The future is as infinite as the stars. Let’s go explore it!
Speculative fiction - including steampunk - has always been a metaphorical mirror to our own society, allowing us to see ourselves and our behaviors from the outside in ways that we otherwise couldn't.
It's not magic.
It's the interworking of dozens of finely machined gears. It's the craftswoman adjusting the tension on a spring so it doesn't break. It's the stoker making sure the furnace fires stay burning. It's the conductor collecting tickets, the passengers watching the landscape roll by, the excited child standing next to the engineer who gets to pull the cord and hear the train's steam whistle.
It might not be magic, but it's still amazing.
Especially with a project like Steampunk Universe, making an anthology of steampunk stories that feature diverse characters who are disabled or aneurotypical.
