When I was a younger man, my brother and I spent a not inconsiderable amount of time in the basement of one of my best friends, listening to rock, playing pool, and drinking the occasional beer. Among the bands in our routine was a little group from Canada. You might have heard of them. They were called Rush.
I am terribly stoked thise evening to be able to report that a story of mine is going to be included in an anthology titled 2113: Stories Inspired by the Music of Rush, an anthology edited by John McFetridge and Kevin J. Anderson.
This project will include some remarkable authors (the list of which you can find behind the link there). We’ve each selected a song to focus on, and as one of the other authors suggested, I think the whole thing would make a helluva playlist. My selection is “Natural Science,” which is a massive beast in three movements that I just couldn’t pass up. The story is about half-done, and I know where I want it to go. Now we just get to see if I can finish it off.
The anthology’s release date is still in work, so I’ll post that whenever I hear of it. In the meantime, here’s something to help you get into the mood.
