Looking for a good set of stories to while you’re sitting on the beach? You can’t really go wrong with Beneath the Waves, a short story bundle you can get a BundleRabbit and a whole bunch of other places I’ll link to below. Even better, the whole thing is on sale at $0.99 for the next week (then it will jump to $2.99, so move quick…he says donning his evil marketing hat!).
I can’t tell you how excited I am for this one. It’s got a bunch of my favorite writers in it, and it contains a completely original story “The Black Marker at the End of Time” I put together just for it. I love this story. It’s one that just kind of flowed as it flowed and when it was done I went “yes, that’s exactly it.” These things just don’t happen to me that often. Is it fantasy? Yes. Is it science fiction? Maybe. I don’t know. All I can say for sure is that I find it a wonderfully odd piece. I hope you’ll love it, too.
The bundle debuted in Amazon’s Top 100 short story collections, and was running at #33 last I checked.
