Chasing Shadows

51lrmahsf1lThe story list for the new Chasing Shadows anthology from Tor Books reads like a Who’s Who of award-winning, bestselling science fiction authors… and somehow I’ve got a story in there, too.  It’s a bit of a rush to share a table of contents with David Brin, Neal Stephenson, Vernor Vinge, William Gibson, Robert J. Sawyer, Gregory Benford, Damon Knight, Robert Silverberg, Bruce Sterling, and quite a few more.  There must be dozens of Hugo and Nebula awards represented by this list, and tens of millions of books sold.  It should be an incredible read.  The hardback goes on sale on January 10, but of course you can preorder the book any time!

The theme of the anthology is our increasingly transparent society, where cameras are smaller, surveillance cheaper, and our lives are more and more public on social media.  Where is it leading?  The dawn of Big Brother?  Or a billion little brothers, all spying on each other?  How will our society change?  This collection of stories and essays is the answer to this question, as envisioned by some of the best science fiction authors in the field.  Check it out!

David is a science fiction and fantasy author, which gives him the freedom to explore far beyond the limits of real life and the everyday. His books explores themes that skirt the edges of science and religion, such as human origins, the nature of truth, the certainty of death, and the nature of the soul. He does all his writing at home, where he lives with his wife and seven children. It’s a lively and clamorous place, full of fun, love, and chaos. His latest novel is SUPERPOSITION, a quantum physics murder mystery with the same mind-bending, breathless action as films like INCEPTION and MINORITY REPORT. His other works include the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel TERMINAL MIND, the historical fantasy QUINTESSENCE (Tor, 2013) and its sequel, QUINTESSENCE SKY.
