Tuscany Bay Books’ co-Publisher Jim Christina is today’s blogger as we continue our series of blog posts regarding Tuscany Bay Books’ Planetary Anthology Series.
I don’t pretend to understand Science Fiction. Truth be known, most of the time I think Science Fiction is a contest to see who can come up with the weirdest scenarios and most assuredly weirdest names.
So, agreeing to publish a Science Fiction Anthology complete with weird names and strange scenarios, I took a, not so gentle, leap to the dark side. But once there, not only was I pleasantly surprised, but quite pleased at some of the stories offered for this Anthology. Well written, well crafted, and well thought out stories of distant planets, times far into the future, places nonexistent or yet to be discovered. And, rest assured, we have left the stories true to the author’s visions.
Working with my partner and friend, Richard Paolinelli, I learned he can like westerns, and I can like Sci-Fi. I have yet to write a Sci-Fi novel, but Richard and I have collaborated on a western book, The Last Lonely Trail and he liked it!
So, hopefully, those that have ignored Sci-Fi in the past may want to pull their heads out of the sand and those that have always liked and appreciated Sci-Fi, sit back and buckle up because you are in for a hell of a ride!
