Terra Nullius

Good news! (Because there’s not much of that around these days, so let’s take what we can!)

Terra Nullius, a forthcoming anthology from Kristell Ink Books, edited by Kate Coe and Ellen Croshain, will include a brand new story by yours truly.

Terra Nullius: land belonging to no-one. An anthology of speculative fiction that explores the colonisation of our Solar System and far beyond, where pioneers carve out a new existence under other stars. New worlds and new challenges, with alien races and strange technology, but also the many facets of human emotion during the struggle to make a new home…

My story, Escape, looks at a team of far-future explorers discovering a long-lost colony world from the first, pre-hyperspace diaspora. Of course, not everything is as straightforward as the exploitative explorers expect…

Other stories in the anthology will include:

Regolith – Nina Johnson
A Salt Moon – Jessica Reisman
Reaper – Matthew Pederson
Terra Incognita – Jessica Rydill
The Chlorophyll Run – Erica Eastick
Countdown to Deliverance – Thomas Spargo
My Sister’s Grave – Jonathan Oliver
Tap – Shaun Brassfield-Thorpe
Wind and Stars and All Creation – Gregor Hartmann
No-Name – John Bayliss
The Brides of Rack and Ruin – Jill Hand
First Contact – Will McMillan-Jones

Now that’s a fantastic line-up of new and established names, and I’m looking forward to reading them all! Oh, and there’s already artwork for the anthology – check out this fantastic Nele Diel cover art, and look out for Terra Nullius later on this year!
