Now for sale: LIGHTS IN THE DEEP

I am very proud to announce the official public release of my short story compilation, Lights in the Deep. Containing ten of my award-nominated, award-winning short science fiction pieces which have appeared in the pages of Analog Science Fiction and Fact magazine, as well as Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show. Also included are introductions by Stanley Schmidt, Mike Resnick, and Allan Cole. With my additional commentary on the genesis of each story, plus non-fictional interludes devoted to friends, mentors, and the state of the genre.

This compilation is being released through WordFire Press, courtesy of Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta. WordFire did a brilliant job producing the book—both hardcopy, and print versions. I’m grateful to all the hard work that WordFire et al put into this book, and I am especially pleased to have secured award-winning science fiction and fantasy artist Bob Eggleton’s permission to use his artwork for the cover. It’s the same painting Bob did for one of the book’s keystone stories, “Ray of Light”, when that story first appeared as the cover story for the December 2011 issue of Analog magazine.

Anderson, William C. Dietz, Aaron Allston, and R.M. Meluch. Reardon’s Law takes you on an adventure beyond the boundaries of the civilized galaxy, to a place where one military cop—Kal Reardon—is all that stands between the forces of the anarchic Ambit League, and the bleeding-edge military hardware the Ambit League desperately needs to re-start a war that everyone else in the Conflux of worlds believes is permanently finished.
