COMING SOON:
Residential Aliens Anthology, Volume 1: Speculative Fiction from the Seven Stars. Available November 1, 2007, this volume will be published by Residential Aliens, in association with The Writer's Cafe Press and The Lost Genre Guild.

The compilation of speculative stories with a faith-based twist comes from the on-line Zine, Residential Aliens, and will offer additional never-before-read stories, including those by:

+ George Duncan, author of the upcoming murder mystery, A Wine Red Silence (Capstone Fiction)

+ Patrick G Cox, author of high seas, deep space adventure, Out of Time (AuthorHouse)

+ Andy Bowers, contributor to the revived pulp classic, Superlative Tales.

+ Merrie Destefano, editor of Victorian Homes magazine, contributing editor of Romantic Homes, Cottages & Bungalows, Lodges, and Lofts magazines.

+ Plus many more!

Here's some "Advance Praise" for ResAliens Anthology:

“Residential Aliens Anthology offers well-written stories with plausible plots, interesting characters, and vivid descriptions spiked with conflict and tension as the pages carry you to other dimensions, times and worlds. Some stories make for fun light reading while others carry an underlying message of hope and truth. It’s a great collection.”
—Donna Sundblad, author of Windwalker (TheInkSlinger.net)

“Exciting speculative fiction that leaves you wanting more. Quality work!”
—Brandon Barr, co-author of When the Sky Fell (Silver Leaf Books)

“Thoughtful and thought-provoking. Residential Aliens has put together a collection of speculative fiction stories that grabs the reader from page one of their anthology, and never lets go.”
- Mike Lynch, co-author of When the Sky Fell (Silver Leaf Books)

“Intriguing stories that will stretch your imagination and make you think about Truth. I quite enjoyed them!”
- Jack Stinson, author of High Street and Hard Pursuit (Infinity Publishing)

Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming launch on November 1, 2007

Hey, Merrie, the cover is very cool. Looking forward to hearing about the launch. How great that you can add the story to your (already impressive) bio!

Becky,
Yes, it's all way cool. Lyn Perry over at Residential Aliens is cooking up a literary storm, both with his Zine and now with this anthology.

Between this and Marcher Lord Press, and some other things going on in CBA in general, there is much to be excited about for those of us who love speculative fiction.

It will be interesting to see what happens within the next year...

Thanks for stopping by-
:)

Great promo. Thanks for the encouragement and support. This is getting rather exciting, isn't it? :-) Have a great week, Lyn from Res Aliens

Lyn,
Absolutely! Sometimes the word "exciting" seems tame!

Can't wait to see the finished book. Thanks again for including my story, and for supporting speculative fiction!

Blessings,
Merrie
