InterGalactic Medicine Show has just put out a new anthology entitled IGMS: Big Book of SF Novelettes containing reprints of stories that have appeared in the magazine. The anthology includes my very first published story, “When I Kissed the Learned Astronomer,” among other great stories. Here is the official book description:
Welcome to the surprisingly potent world of the novelette. Too long to be a short story, too short to be a novel: the award-winning magazine Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show (IGMS) has been an online haven for this powerful form of storytelling since 2005. Now the magazine’s editors have selected their all-time favorite science fiction novelettes and gathered them together in one Big Book of reading pleasure: IGMS: Big Book of SF Novelettes.
Anything that is remotely possible: Futures near and far, artificial intelligence and alien encounters, alternate time-lines and alternate theories about creating universes, planet-eating black holes and lunar race-tracks. It’s all here, under the big tent of Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show…
Featuring stories by award-winning authors including Orson Scott Card, Wayne Wightman, Aliette de Bodard, Eric James Stone, Mary Robinette Kowal, Stephen Kotowych, Jackie Gamber, Greg Siewert, Jamie Todd Rubin, Brad Torgersen, and Marina J. Lostetter.
It is very cool to see my story reprinted, but even better is the company with whom the story appears. The book’s cover is based on a fantastic piece of cover art by Howard Lyon for Mary Robinette Kowal’s story.
The e-book version of the book is available on Amazon today. A print edition of the book will be available through Amazon and other outlets beginning in January. If you are looking for some terrific science fiction novelettes, consider checking out this book.
