A few months back I was invited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling to submit an original short story for an upcoming anthology of YA dystopian fiction, to be called After and to be published by Hyperion.
I am pleased to be able to officially announce that my story, "Reunion" will be included in the anthology along with original stories by (among others):
N. K. Jemisin
Caitlín R. Kiernan
Susan Beth Pfeffer
I will tell you more (like publication date) when I learn more. I can tell you that the above list is not all inclusive.
And it certainly reveals no spoilers to say when I started thinking of the idea for "Reunion" I imagined a happy friendly heartwarming story and I ended up instead with an unusually dark (even by my unusually dark standards) kind of nasty story instead.
Well, you all know me well enough not to be surprised by that!
