Goal #41 Compile a yearly anthology from the SF/F contest

Done!

The first anthology, highlighting 12 of the great entries from the high school contest is now available in print and for kindle on Amazon. I'll be posting it on other online stores like Smashwords soon.

This book was a lot of fun to compile. Many of the students exchanged emails with me as we worked on some edits. In the end I had to do a few on my own, but I only edited "lightly". The goal was to retain the author's voice and style. This means there are some verb tense issues, but it is what it is--a highlight of raw talent.

A glimpse into the future of speculative fiction.

Get your copy today and help spread the word. All royalties earned from the sale of this book will be saved for the 2015 contest prizes. Last year we gave away $200 of cash prizes to the students. Remember it was free for them to enter. I'd love to keep it this way and selling the anthology is a great way to raise the prize money.
