Fall and Rise

Phyllis Gotlieb, Jay Lake, and I have stories in the anthology Fall and Rise edited by Ahmed A. Khan. My contribution, "The Shoulders of Giants," is a reprint -- but also, I think, one of my very best stories.

The anthology's theme is instriguing:
There have been anthologies of post-apocalyptic fiction ,but none such as this one. When it comes to post-apocalyptic survival, the paradigm is the usual "survival of the fittest." "Fittest" is taken to mean the meanest, the most unethical, the most selfish. Is it possible to survive apocalypse without giving up one's ethics?
You can get the book from the publisher, Whortleberry Press.

"Instriguing" being my new word for things that are simultaneously both interesting and intriguing.

Thanks for the plug, Rob. It was yours and Phyllis's contributions in the early days of the anthology that really gave me courage to push this project.

Instrigueing?...oops...let me try that again...instriguing? Might that have something to do with the fact that the post was made at 12:02 am, Rob?... :D
