An anthology of alien archaeology, hidden mysteries, and things that are better off left buried.
I am so ridiculously excited about this. When Dagan Books put out the call for submissions last year, I had one of those crushing moments of, “But I’ve tried to write sci fi and I can’t!” But I read so much of it, how can that be? And–archaeology! I totally did that in school, come onnnn I can’t say no.
I talked to Balaji about my idea for a future story in which all the colonists were descended from his home state in India, Tamil Nadu. He named my characters–in particular Kannagi, who is a total badass. We discussed the artifact. We discussed cultural relevance. We discussed totally destroying shit, sci-fi style. And yeah, I totally couldn’t say no, as suspected. (Lucky for me, though I’m sure Carrie could’ve said no, she did not.)
And now here it is, in this collection full of amazing authors, with a shiny cover by Oliver Wetter. It’s out today in all kinds of formats, so check it out if you like this alien idea. It’s gorgeous! Click to buy – or if you’re low on cash, enter the GR giveaway to win one of two copies. Happy birthday, In Situ.
