On April 1st, 2018 we announced the "Demon Investors" project. It was an opportunity to pitch an anthology concept to the Demon Investors team. If you were able to sell us on your idea, we were willing to fund your project, and you get to be the editor for the anthology. For many, it sounded to good to be true and more like an April Fool's prank than legitimate, yet several authors took the chance anyway.
The opportunity was no joke and we accepted three pitches: Crash Code from Kevin Holton, Burnt Fur from Ken MacGregor, and Chew on This from Robert Essig. While there is still time to submit to Chew on This, we are happy to announce the TOC for Crash Code.
The future is now. At least, that's what we're told, but the more advanced technology gets, the more ways people find to hurt each other. Many say that technology changes the way we define 'human.' In this anthology, we'll erase the definition entirely. Crash Code examines the pinnacle of our technology and what happens when it meets the depths of our depravity.
We are excited to see the return of several Blood Bound Books authors for this project as well as a great mix of new writers.
Kristopher Triana - "The Deepest Fake"
Dean H. Wild - "God Finger"
K. Trap Jones - Respawn Inc
Aaron Thomas Milstead - A Silent Auction
Daniel I. Russell – "Mechanism"
T. Fox Dunham - "The Children’s Crusade"
KJ Moore - The Blue Schnooklybob
Luciano Marano - The Fate You Are
Alex Franco - Mr. Companion
Nathan Batchelor - Recursion by Nashville Moonlight
Eric Lewis - Cold Calculations
Odin Oxthorn - The Weight of the Lotus
David Shultz - Nervana
Christopher Wilson - Grinder
John Pedersen - Control Vipectus
Matt Thompson - Purity
Damascus Mincemeyer - Time Share
Patrick Meegan - A Leg Up
Melanie Rees - Attrition of the Soul
Rachel Nussbaum - Bleed Over
Addison Smith - Hard Memory
Hannah Trusty - Auto
Morgan Chalfant - Little Neon
Sebastian Hetman - First to Fight
Neil Hudson - "One Survivor"
We may have a few more additions to add at the zero hour, but for now, please help us welcome these amazing authors! On another note, we have been announcing Kevin Holton as the editor of the Crash Code, however, our editor has their own announcement. Kevin Holton will now be Quinn Parker. Same person, just a new name that suits her a lot better. We hope you enjoy working with her as much as we do and we anticipate the system to fail in December 2019!
