Editor extraordinaire John Joseph Adams has just released his latest anthology, OTHER WORLDS THAN THESE, a collection of “parellel world and portal fantasy” stories. My story “The Thirteen Texts of Arthyria” is being reprinted in the collection.
“Arthyria” was first published in another Adams anthology, WAY OF THE WIZARD, and there is definitely a strong “wizard” element to the tale. But there are also really cool stories in OTHER WORLDS by George R. R. Martin, Stephen King, Robert Silverberg, Ursula K. LeGuin, and many, many more.
Adams says of the book on his website: “We can all imagine such ‘other worlds’—be they worlds just slightly different than our own or worlds full of magic and wonder—but it is only in fiction that we can travel to them. From The Wizard of Oz to The Dark Tower, from Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass to C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia, there is a rich tradition of this kind of fiction, but never before have the best parallel world stories and portal fantasies been collected in a single volume—until now.”
The book hits stores on June 3rd. More info at Adam’s page: http://www.johnjosephadams.com
