Fiction River: Unnatural Worlds
Dean Wesley Smith & Kristine Kathryn Rusch
From a funeral procession in Asia to an ancestral estate deep in the heart of a vaguely Victorian forest to a carriage accident in the vast universe of The Runelords, Unnatural Worlds takes readers on a journey to the far side of the imagination. Funny, heartbreaking, frightening, but most importantly, memorable, the original stories in this anthology go places few writers dare reach. Unnatural Worlds marks the perfect start to this brand-new anthology series.
Original stories by Devon Monk, Ray Vukcevich, Esther M. Friesner, Irette Y. Patterson, Kellen Knolan, Annie Reed, Dean Wesley Smith, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Leah Cutter, Richard Bowes, Jane Yolen, and David Farland.
“Fiction River is off to an auspicious start. It’s a worthy heir to the original anthology series of the 60s and 70s. … It’s certainly the top anthology of the year to date.”
