The new science fiction, fantasy, and horror short story collection, "Universe Horribilis," from Third Flatiron Anthologies, takes you on a whirlwind tour of cosmic irony.  Hope for the best, plan for the worst, and. . . prepare to be crushed by the semi full of cows skidding your way.


Why is everything and everyone out to get you? Paranoid? Or just realistic?

Third Flatiron Publishing presents "Universe Horribilis," a new anthology of science fiction short stories by an international group of award-winning and emerging writers, who offer their speculative takes on the theme of a hostile or uncaring universe. Contributors include Clare L. Deming, Sarina Dorie, James S. Dorr, Robin Wyatt Dunn, Siobhan Gallagher, Jack M. Horne, Rich Larson, David Luntz, Marilyn K. Martin, Curtis James McConnell, Sheryl Normandeau, Edward H. Parks, Jennifer Povey, and James H. Zorn.

Follow these talented storytellers as they each offer their unique takes on the twists and turns the universe puts us through: monsters and mayhem, Cthulhu, evil sorcerers, sadistic diners, twisted princesses, plagues, alien enemies, cosmic menace, sinister robots, genetically modified food, and, of course, your mother-in-law.

Universe Horribilis is available for online reading in multiple ebook formats, including Epub (for iPad/iBooks, Nook, Kobo), .mobi (Kindle), HTML, PDF, plain text, RTF, and Palm.

Full book price: $2.99 USD. (2016 - Available free for a limited time.)
