Publisher Description

Fictional military superpowers have captured our imaginations since
Plato invented Atlantis, and superpowers are all too real in today's
technological world. How would our stories evolve if they took place
on other worlds?

"Hyperpowers" from Third Flatiron Anthologies, guest-edited by Bascomb
James, takes on the challenge of telling short speculative fiction
stories that explore space opera and military fiction themes. These
tales raise potent issues such as:

o Empires may grow and dominate, but civilizations can also lose
momentum and dissipate into lawlessness

o Great distances may put an end to warfare and environmental
degradation, but expansionist tendencies could cause it to spread
instead

o Our silicon-based creations or other life forms may compete with us
for galactic domination, ultimately outshining us

The international group of contributors includes William Huggins,
Jonathan Shipley, Dan Koboldt, John M. Campbell, Mark Rookyard, Sam
Bellotto Jr., Erik B. Scott, E. J. Shumak, Brandon L. Summers, Neil
James Hudson, Robert Walton, K. S. Dearsley, Noel Ayers, Elliotte
Rusty Harold, Martin Clark, and Art Lasky. And as usual, our "Grins
and Gurgles" humor section allows a light-hearted take on the subject.
