I just received notice of the line-up for the first issue of the pulp-style magazine called Dark Worlds, which is a new publishing project put from Mike Jackson and G.W. Thomas (the editor responsible for shepherding Dire Planet to publication at both CyberPulp and Rage Machine Press).
My Novella length story, The Investment, will be one of the two featured novellas. I'm familiar with some of the work of the other authors, and I'm eager to find out what they've put together for this first issue of Dark Worlds magazine.The Investment follows the employees of Barclay Salvaging as they make a run for a trove of ancient alien technology. With rival salvaging companies trailing them, and a team of intergalactic assassins gunning for them they've trouble enough when they find that the supposedly uninhabited planet on which they've crash-landed is occupied by something far more sinister than all the other forces aligned against them.
The Dark Worlds line-up is listed below. I'll keep you updated and be sure to let you know when Dark Worlds comes off the presses.
