You might recognize Dave Strachan as the guy who helps you with your Arctic Cat snowmobile needs at Listers Motorsports (that is not him on the cover of the book there). I know Dave more as a science fiction writer and friend. I’m THRILLED to say that Dave made it into the Inhuman anthology put out by Absolute XPress, a Direct-to-Reader press owned by Hades Publications, which specializes in scifi, fantasy, horror e-books and paper-books.
The anthology is made up of flash fiction–stories under 1000 words–part of the Flash Fiction #4 Challenge that Absolute XPress issued earlier this year. The stories discuss what it means to be human from an inhuman POV. Some stories are all from that POV, and some have characters that are inhuman chatting about humanity. I was the guest editor who helped choose the stories, but I’m proud to say that the judging was blind and that his story was chosen by all three judges. I had no idea if we were going to end up with Dave’s story in the bunch. There were a lot of great entries and we couldn’t put everyone in–but collectively we ended up choosing great stories.
And, Dave…. way to go.
