The Texans are at it again!
A man sent to stop the world’s first zero-G birth. A deep space pilot who runs headlong into Einstein’s theory of relativity. A synthetic human fighting for survival in a world that sees her as disposable. All these stories and more can be found in A Lone Star in the Sky, the second anthology from the Future Classics speculative fiction writers’ group of North Dallas. Featuring eighteen stunning stories of science fiction and fantasy, including works by Nebula winner William Ledbetter (“The Long Fall Up”), and Nebula nominees Jake Kerr (“Biographical Fragments of the Life of Julian Prince”) and Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam (“The Orangery”), A Lone Star in the Sky covers the gamut of speculative fiction and proves once again that everything is bigger in Texas.
