Sceince Fiction for the (Electronic) Throne

In July of this year, Fantastic Books was thrilled to publish Science Fiction for the Throne: One-Sitting Reads, an anthology edited by Tom Easton and Judith K. Dial. The anthology was borne of what I can only assume was a joke, which turned into an idea, and then a project, and finally a book. It is filled with fantastic science fiction stories, from some of the biggest names in the field, as well as from some of the newest rising stars.

Since the book's release this summer, Andrew Andrews at True Review said "I thoroughly enjoyed this premise: supershort stories you can enjoy while taking care of very personal business." Ira Nayman at Amazing Stories said "The stories are expertly crafted, highly entertaining and perfect for the stated purpose…. Science Fiction for the Throne: One-Sitting Reads is not a book to try and read in one sitting (as I largely did). It is what I sometimes refer to as 'a dipping book:' for maximum effect, you should read a story or two here, a story or two there, a story or two somewhere else."

Now Fantastic Books is excited to announce that Science Fiction for the Throne is available in a variety of electronic formats from your favorite ebook retailers. Same great content, different format, still (as Tom Easton said) "Just remember—one sitting, one read! Others are waiting!"
