Description

Peep through the keyhole that is A Consortium of Worlds for a glimpse of Consortium Books’s outstanding stable of speculative fiction authors. A Consortium of Worlds is a showcase of new and innovative voices in all types of fiction from a publisher dedicated to allowing every writer his or her own voice.

There are no slaves to trends or what’s-hot lists here, only writers imagining newer and brighter vistas of unseen tomorrows, untold yesterdays, unknown todays, and untouched worlds of pure imagination.

We welcome newcomer Heather Sutherlin as she spins a barroom tale that is equal parts chilling and thrilling. Courtney Cantrell pulls back the curtain of madness to show that an insane woman may see more of the multiverse than her jailers. Joshua Unruh introduces a pulp hero for the modern world who battles one of the greatest villains of the 20th century. Jessie Sanders gives us the first of a two-part tale of a war torn nation and its refugees. Thomas Beard once again takes us into humanity’s history to show that superheroics existed even before a certain someone burst on the scene with an S on his chest.

This issue is Volume 3 of the quarterly magazine. Approximately 25,000 words. Edited by Courtney Cantrell and Joshua Unruh.
