Like all good authors and editors, I want to get the word out for my upcoming anthology GRANTS PASS. As such, I am having a contest to help this. If you spread the word about the GRANTS PASS anthology and its pre-order link between the dates of May 29, 2009 and June 6, 2009 and then link your post to THIS contest journal entry (http://jennifer-brozek.livejournal.com/50584.html
), your name will be tossed into the hat for a prize. This prize includes stuff from Grants Pass city, a letter from Kayley Allard and other neat stuff. Please note that if you win this prize you will need to email me your postal address.
The GRANTS PASS anthology is available for pre-order from Morrigan Books at http://www.morriganbooks.com/?page_id=172The apocalypse has arrived. Humanity was decimated by bio-terrorism; three engineered plagues were let loose on the world. Barely anyone has survived. Just a year before the collapse, Grants Pass, Oregon, USA, was publicly labeled as a place of sanctuary in a whimsical online, “what if” post. Now, it has become one of the last known refuges, and the hope, of mankind. Would you go to Grants Pass based on the words of someone you’ve never met?
“Each story from Grants Pass draws from the same well of emotions and horror as Stephen King’s THE STAND and Robert McCammon’s SWAN SONG. It’ll take you to the darker sides of humanity and yet, at the end of the road, Grants Pass will show you the hope and possibilities of the human spirit.”– Jason Sizemore, Stoker-nominated editor-in-chief of Apex Book Company and author of Irredeemable.
“This is a unique anthology that deserves attention. You’ll hear echoes of Stephen King’s The Stand
, David Brin’s The Postman
and even Cormac McCarthy’s The Road
as you read this series of stories about the survivors of a great plague. The stories are varied and lively, and their talented authors lead you (sometimes kicking and screaming) toward sanctuary. If you’re reading these words now, dive into these pages, and meet the survivors at Grants Pass.”— Patrick Swenson, editor of Talebones Magazine.
“Grants Pass is a remarkable, disturbing, and worthwhile read, and one that is likely to stay with the reader for some time to come. I’m predicting that this anthology will be up for a swag of awards come the next round of Aurealis, Ditmar and Australian Shadows nominations.”– Chuck McKenzie, HorrorScope
