NeaDNAthals return!

NeaDNAthal – From Fringeworks

Fringework’s latest publication, NeaDNAthal, has now been published, and I’m in it!

Neanderthals. The lost race, vanished into the mists of history. But what if they came back? What if science was able to bring them into the present day? Would they be gods, or warriors, or slaves, or something else? Fringeworks presents NeaDNAthal – sixteen stories by writers at the top of their game about the possible lives of the Neanderthals in the present day or the future. In space, in the borderlands of America, in the mountains of the Caucasus. In many places. Let these stories guide you through a world where the long-extinct has been made living once more.

My story, Abomination, is set in what I’ve called the Bunkerverse. The first of those stories was Death’s Messengers, in Grimm and Grimmer: Volume Two: Volume 2. The second was The Enlightened Soldier, in Andromeda’s Children.

Abomination is the third in the series, all of which are consecutive, and which I will have to group together once rights revert back to me.

Right now, you might spot that the price is somewhat high, that’s because the book hasn’t been officially released yet. I couldn’t contain my excitement however, as I wrote this story back in 2013! It will be very interesting to see how people compare my writing in this, to my writing in other publications such as Blaise Maximillian: Bitter Defeat.
