Anthology Pre-Order – Raven Oak

Anthology Pre-Order

It’s Anthology Pre-Order time! I’ve got stories in two anthologies coming out in October, and both are available for pre-order on Amazon in eBook format. Print pre-orders will come soon, and I’ll post about that then. In the meantime, here is some information about both anthologies and my stories in them!

My story “Q-Be” will appear in Untethered: A Magic iPhone Anthology. Take the horrific freemium model apps and games use these days and toss in college students’ dependence on their phone and you have Q-Be. It’s where you be!

My story “Mirror Me” will appear in Magic Unveiled: An Anthology. This story is set in Seattle in present day, featuring a main character who sees more than a face when he looks at people. Makes it difficult for him as a detective in the Seattle Police Department, especially when the most recent murder victim is someone he knows.

Almost everyone carries a smartphone these days. They sit in pockets and on tables. They sleep on headboards and are the first things their owners check in the morning. They’ve edged out more mundane equipment like calendars and MP3 players.

They aren’t magical, of course. Or are they?

In Untethered: A Magic iPhone Anthology, 21 authors twist reality and call into question the mundanity we hold in our hands. They ask the question, “Is that smartphone completely explainable by science?” and they decide the answer is a resounding “No!”

From award-winners and bold new voices, from experienced fantasists and professional technologists, these stories are fun, clever, and often positive about the power of technology.

Enjoy new stories from:
Rhiannon Held / Manny Frishberg / Edd Vick / H.M. Jones / Kris Millering / Raven Oak / Jon Lasser / Sarina Dorie / Jonathon Burgess / Jeremiah Reinmiller / C.S. O’Cinneide / Stevehen Warren / Aaron Giddings, Sr. / Amanda Hackwith / Dale Cameron Lowry / Dawn Vogel / Kyle Yadlosky / J.S. Rogers / Angela Dell’Isola / Stephanie Djock / A. Moritz

At the intersection of fantasy and technology, iPhones could go either way.
Magic knows your number, and it’s calling you.
