My short story Zen and the Art of Starship Maintenance to appear in Cosmic Powers, a new John Joseph Adams anthology

I’m super psyched to be a part of this anthology that comes out early next year. The anthology was just announced at the B&N blog:

From the Golden Age to the modern day, from Lensmen, to Star Wars, to Guardians of the Galaxy, nothing has served as a more ready signifier of what science fiction can do as a genre than the space opera. Futuristic weapons and instellar warfare in fantastical, pan-galactic settings: it’s truly the stuff dreams are made of. Next April, Saga Press and accomplished editor John Joseph Adams will celebrate all the subgenre has to offer modern readers with Cosmic Powers: A Saga Anthology of Far-Away Galaxies, an collection of 17 brand-new space opera stories from a fascinating assortment of familiar and up-and-coming writers.

My story in this, Zen and the Art of Starship Maintenance, is a story I’ve wanted to write for almost six years. I’m so excited I had a chance to write it.

  1. Hi Toby!

    I am excited for you for this upcoming release. Wait! I am excited for me too. Can’t wait to read it!

    Love all your stories but there will always be a fondness in my heart for Pepper (I’m a Pepper, your a Pepper … I knew there was a song in there somewhere. 😉

    Looking forward, as always, to more projects and novels. Hope to see Pepper appear again soon. Health and happiness to you and your family!

    • Hi AMD! Thanks so much, I’m glad you’re excited.

      Yeah, I love Pepper as well, very fun to write.

      Thank you for the well wishes!
