Short SF Stories…

I was in Waterstones while in Bristol today, checking out science fiction books… as you do… when I noticed that there was something missing from their shelves – anthologies of short stories.

Admittedly I put it down to just one of those things. That was until I also checked out Foyles. Exactly the same. No science fiction anthologies.

You can still get anthologies on Amazon or if done by a local writing group, from that writing group. So have science fiction anthologies stopped being brought into book shops? Only time will tell, but I suspect the answer is yes. This is in part due to the cost in time, money and resources to producing an anthology. Which means novels are more profitable. So it’s not surprising anthologies could be disappearing from book stores.

I’m also pleased to say that Jupiter Issue 47 with my short story, Air of Freedom, is now available on Amazon as an e-publication. The link is here. Enjoy.

    1. Hello Mike, My bad – I gave you the link to the US site. I’ve now changed it it to the UK site, which should read –
      If you still have problems, please let me know.

      Apologies, grovel grovel… not one of my better weeks all round.

      The delay in e-publishing this magazine is I suspect due to the VAT mess this current government has forced e-publishing to go through. It seems to be an absolute nightmare.

  1. Problem solved. Unavailable on iPad, only Android. However when purchased on an android phone can be sync’ed across onto the kindle account on the iPad. You do however have to have two devices with your account to be able to do this.
