The Visions of the Future Bundle, curated by Dean Wesley Smith:

I grew up reading science fiction way back in the 1950s. And from those early years, I loved it, how it showed me possible futures, places to escape to, wonderful visions, and dark possibilities.

To say I loved science fiction would be a gigantic understatement.

So when chosen for the wonderful task of putting together a bundle of stories with the title Visions of the Future, I got excited. I wanted to find writers who could take me into their visions of what they saw the future to be.

A Fleet Action Spread Across an Endless Blue Sky by Steven Mohan Jr.

"Political intrigue—check! Insightful characters—check! Real-world weapons and tactics—check! Buy this book. You won't be disappointed."

– Jason Schmetzer, BattleTech Author, Amazon Review of Winter Dragon, as by Henry Martin

Wakers by Ron Collins

"Ron Collins is one of our best hard science fiction writers—a novel from him is a major event. Enjoy!"

– Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-Winning Author of Quantum Night

In the Empire of Underpants and Other Stories by Robert Jeschonek

"Robert Jeschonek is the literary love child of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman. His fiction is cutting edge, original, and pulsing with dark and fantastical life. His stories suck me in and refuse to let me go until the last page, even as his characters are busy stealing my heart."

– Adrian Phoenix, critically acclaimed author of the Maker's Song and Hoodoo series.

The Pericles Conspiracy by Michael Kingswood

•"...this book grabs you at the first, deceptively leads you along for a bit, then, just when you think you have a good feel for the pacing, you hear an evil chuckle and then the afterburners kick in."

– Amazon Review

Consequences by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

"Rusch mounts hard-boiled noir on an expansive sf background with great panache."

– Booklist

Fiction River: Visions of the Apocalypse by Fiction River

"These enjoyable twisting short stories seem more like a stop in the Twilight Zone than pulp fiction."

– Midwest Book Review on Fiction River: Recycled Pulp

The Forever Soldier and Other Future Tales by Annie Reed

"One of the best writers I've come across in years. Annie excels at whatever genre of fiction she chooses to write."

– Kristine Kathryn Rusch, award-winning editor and writer of The Retrieval
