NEW RELEASE: My Battery Is Low and It Is Getting Dark

It's here! Starting today, you can pick up a brand new sci-fi anthology featuring one of my stories, MY BATTERY IS LOW AND IT IS GETTING DARK. The theme of this one is various forms of technology finding renewed purpose in obsolescence.

The immediate comparison is Wall-E, but for some reason my mind goes right to The Brave Little Toaster.

Anyway, here's the synopsis for the anthology:
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 Explore the myriad ideas of what happens when out-of-date and abandoned technologies are given a second life—one that takes them in a new direction, far outside their intended programming and beyond their original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 able to take a look at some of the stories while doing some edits and there's some good stuff in there. My story is titled, "Ain't Done Haunting," and I'm pretty proud of this one. I'll probably talk about it more at-length once the anthology has been out there a bit, since I don't want to give anything away.

You can pick up MY BATTERY IS LOW AND IT IS GETTING DARK almost anywhere books are sold online. You can also purchase through the publisher if you want to support a small press directly.

I'll make a proper update about some upcoming projects in the near future, but in the meantime I've recently started a Twitter account. Still getting used to how to even, like, Tweet and stuff, but if you want to see me geek out about Star Wars or whatever game I happen to be addicted to recently (LOTRO), then look me up: @AntonymLowe

Thanks -- and be safe!
