Now that the holiday season is over, its time to start planning ahead for the New Year. But first, I have some new releases I wanted to be sure didnt get lost in the festivities.
Associate Publisher Gwyneth Gibby briefly mentioned our latest volume of Fiction River in her fantastic end-of-year recap last week, but its time to shine a spotlight on that incredible volume.
Heres the synopsis:
In this latest volume of Fiction River, editor Dean Wesley Smith pulls together an eclectic but cohesive group of stories filled with difficult decisions. From a man who must question the line between justice and vengeance to a teenage fixer fighting hypocrisy to a post-apocalyptic survivors mission to deliver one last message, each of these stories demonstrates extremely hard choicesand some very real consequences.
