Apotheosis Anthology Kickstarter

Last week, Simian Publishing kicked off the Kickstarter for our next anthology Apotheosis – Stories of human survival and defiance in a world subjugated by the Elder Gods.  We’re current at 60% towards being funded.  If you appreciate Lovecraft Mythos themed short fiction, please consider contributing to the cause and help us push across the line..

Apotheosis – Stories of human survival and defiance in a world subjugated by the Elder Gods.

For tens of thousands of years, humanity struggled to grow and evolve, but forever in the shadow of a dread threat known only to a devoted few. When the stars are right, it is said, the Old Ones will return to claim utter dominion of the world…and now this terrible prediction is reality. This anthology features stories about humanity’s new struggle for survival under the reign of the Elder Gods and ancient terrors. It is inspired by the Lovecraft Mythos stories that often climax at the moment of the fateful return of the Elder Gods, but that the audience to ponder at what might happen next. Those questions are answered here, in Apotheosis! This anthology will be available in e-book and print-on-demand (POD) formats.

The Future Embodied – An anthology of speculative stories exploring how science and technology might change our bodies and what it means to be human. Imagine what our ancestors a mere hundred years ago would have thought of the modern world. Think of the medical marvels we experience on a daily basis that would have seemed impossible. Recent medical advances have dramatically extended the human life-span to unthinkable lengths. Science has changed how we live in this world. Technology has allowed humanity to dramatically alter our environment, how we communicate, and how we experience life. Imagine now what our descendants might experience. What new trials or tribulations will the future of humanity suffer, or overcome? The final frontier won’t be out in space but inside our own bodies.

Experience the future as imagined via nineteen powerful voices envisioning what we might become. Including stories from: William F. Nolan, David Gerrold, Ree Soesbee, Jennifer Brozek, Katrina Nicholson, Nghi Vo, Jennifer R. Povey, Sarah Pinsker, Thomas Brennan, Miles Britton, Megan Lee Beals, Lauren C. Teffeau, Shane Robinson, John Skylar, Preston Dennett, Alexandra Grunberg, Wayne Helge, and Holly Schofield.
