ANTHOLOGY ANNOUNCEMENT: My Battery Is Low and It Is Getting Dark (July 1, 2020)

I'm finally able to announce that I'll be contributing a short story to another ZNB anthology this year on July 1st! The story is called "Ain't Done Haunting" and it'll be published in MY BATTERY IS LOW AND IT IS GETTING DARK, a sci-fi anthology about various forms of technology finding renewed purpose in obsolescence.

Here's the synopsis for the collection:
A military attack drone turned shepherd. A train on the London Underground evolving into something new and wondrous. A troupe of robotic actors struggling to find meaning when the audience has disappeared. Explore the myriad ideas of what happens when out-of-date and abandoned technologies are given a second life—one that takes them in a new direction, far outside their intended programming and beyond their original purpose.  
MY BATTERY IS LOW AND IT IS GETTING DARK features fourteen stories of quiet hope, heartbreak, creation, and death from fantasy and science fiction authors Dana Berube, Merc Fenn Wolfmoor, Jacey Bedford, Anthony Lowe, Chris Kocher, Brian Hugenbruch, William Leisner, José Pablo Iriarte, Alethea Kontis, Kari Sperring, Edward Willett, John G. Hartness, Alexander Gideon, and Stephen Leigh. You may never look at your smart speaker the same way again.
I was very excited to be able to work with Zombies Need Brains again. They are just a well-oiled machine at this point after so many successful projects and they put out quality products by unique voices.

And "Ain't Done Haunting" is a story I'm particularly proud of, so I'm glad it was able to find a home here.

You can preorder the anthology right now, either directly through the publisher or through Amazon. It'll also be available through the usual suspects (Nook, Scribd, Kobo, Baen, etc.) on the release date. If you're all about physical copies (like me), those will be available, as well.

Hope you'll consider giving the anthology a look when it's released on July 1st!
