Table of Contents: MASTER MINDS Edited by Juliana Rew

Check out the the table of contents for Juliana Rew’s new anthology Master Minds:

Here’s the book description:

It’s Question Time: What is intelligence, anyway? Who has it? Who wants it? Can humans recognize it in other species? Come the Singularity, will humans survive? Is survival only for the fittest? What will newly sentient creations want to do first? Can we love machines, and can they love us back? Could the ‘Mozart effect’ of music transform us? Are the super-intelligent more likely to be tormented by issues like happiness and the meaning of life?

Third Flatiron Anthologies presents “Master Minds,” a new collection of science fiction/fantasy/horror short stories that consider the different meanings of intelligence.

New and established speculative fiction writers offer a mind-boosting exploration of sentience and sapience. Contributors include Cherith Baldry, Lela E. Buis, Martin Clark, Ellen Denton, Robin Wyatt Dunn, William Huggins, Elliotte Rusty Harold, Jason Lairamore, Vince Liberato, Patrick McCarty, Russell Nichols, Konstantine Paradias, and NM Whitley.

Mars! Dreaming of exploring the Red Planet?

You know you want to go, and Mars has rarely been closer. Patch up that old spacesuit, stick out your thumb, and hitch a ride with thirteen talented speculative fiction writers, collected here in “Redshifted: Martian Stories,” from Third Flatiron Publishing.

Third Flatiron Anthologies presents “Redshifted: Martian Stories,” a collection of new speculative fiction by rising and established authors. Contributors include Maureen Bowden, Lela E. Buis, Martin Clark, Jaimie M. Engle, Jeff Hewitt, Neil James Hudson, Jason Lairamore, Vince Liberato, Michael McGlade, Kara Race-Moore, Ian Rose, Chuck Rothman, and Robina Williams.

Look for your sign as an astrologer casts a Martian colony’s horoscope, the Roman god decides war’s not in his stars, and a tycoon finds his way back to Barsoom. Cheer as a clockwork man takes his girl on the trip of a lifetime, a Martian bride refuses to miss her wedding, and Man’s Best Friend turns out to be a giant roach. Shadow a being who’s “just here to help,” and another who’s just here to hurt. Shiver as murderous antibodies attack an expedition, and a workfare crew struggles to dispose of hazardous junk from space. And of course, get a good laugh as you peruse the Want Ads and check your MarsMail.
