Every year for the past three years, alumni from the Superstars Writing Seminar submit short stories for an anthology published by Wordfire Press. The anthologies began as one of Kevin J. Anderson’s lessons to up-and-coming writers: no matter how silly a writing assignment may seem, if you accept it, you must do the best job of it you can. If your task is to write a story about purple unicorns, make it the best damned purple unicorn story ever written.
Thus One Horn to Rule Them All: A Purple Unicorn Anthology was born, followed a year later by A Game of Horns: A Red Unicorn Anthology. And guess what? From a seemingly silly concept, a lot of great stories emerged.
A third anthology called for a change of themed creature, and we are now pleased to present to you Dragon Writers: An Anthology. It’s available now in both Kindle and print formats. Regular readers of this blog will see a lot of names they recognize in the table of contents, and not just Fictorians, but such luminaries as Brandon Sanderson, David Farland, Jody Lynn Nye, and others. As always, James A. Owen provided the cover art (as well as the forward this time around, because who better to write a forward about dragons?) and Lisa Mangum provided her expert editorial services.
As with the previous years’ anthologies, all proceeds from the sales of this book will go to the Don Hodge Memorial Scholarship Fund, which helps aspiring writers further their education on the business side of the publishing industry. Please check it out, and we hope you enjoy!
