RAYGUNS OVER TEXAS to Premiere at WorldCon/LoneStarCon 3

Editor Rick Klaw sends word that his anthology of Texas authors, Rayguns Over Texas (see the table of contents for impressive lineup), will be making its premiere on August 29 at LoneStarCon 3 (aka the 71st Annual World Science Fiction Convention) in San Antonio on August 29th.
Press release follows…and until then, over at his blog, editor Rick Klaw is previewing Rayguns Over Texas in multiple sneak-peak posts…

Since the end of the Civil War, Texans have played an essential role in the history of science fiction. Acclaimed and influential writers such as Bruce Sterling, Michael Moorcock, Howard Waldrop, Walter M. Miller, Jr., Marion Zimmer Bradley, Gene Wolfe, Neal Barrett, Jr., L. Sprague DeCamp, Chad Oliver, John Steakley, and Elizabeth Moon all called The Lone Star State home.

Continuing this proud tradition, Rayguns Over Texas features 17 original and two classic tales that reflect the current creative state of Texas sci-fi, alongside historical essays and an introduction by Hugo award-winning, Texas ex-pat Bruce Sterling.

The prize-winning Richard Klaw, editor of The Apes of Wrath and co-founder of the groundbreaking Mojo Press, compiled a collection of stories by masters of the realm and fresh new writers featuring the talents of Joe R. Lansdale, Michael Moorcock, Bradley Denton, Neal Barret Jr., Stina Leicht, Aaron Allston, Don Webb, Aurelia Hadley Mohl, Chris N. Brown, Mark Finn, Josh Rountree, Marshall Ryan Maresca, Matthew Bey, Lawrence Person, Nicky Drayden, Rhonda Eudaly, Sanford Allen, Derek Austin Johnson, Jessica Reisman, and Scott A. Cupp.

Premiering on August 29 at LoneStarCon 3 (aka the 71st Annual World Science Fiction Convention) in San Antonio, Rayguns Over Texas will be available shortly after at finer outlets in both trade paperback and ebook formats.

    I really wants to get my hands on this one. But I am just that big of a Bradley Denton fan. With luck after the con there will be some signed ones up on eBay.

    • I was a co-guest-of-honor with Bradley at Apollocon. I got to tell him face-to-face how much I enjoyed his “Sergeant Chip” novella. If you haven’t already read it, I highly recommend it. 🙂

  2. Kind of jazzed to see my name among such luminaries…
