Third Flatiron Anthologies presents "Redshifted: Martian Stories," a collection of new speculative fiction by rising and established authors. Contributors include Maureen Bowden, Lela E. Buis, Martin Clark, Jaimie M. Engle, Jeff Hewitt, Neil James Hudson, Jason Lairamore, Vince Liberato, Michael McGlade, Kara Race-Moore, Ian Rose, Chuck Rothman, and Robina Williams.
Look for your sign as an astrologer casts a Martian colony's horoscope, the Roman god decides war's not in his stars, and a tycoon finds his way back to Barsoom. Cheer as a clockwork man takes his girl on the trip of a lifetime, a Martian bride refuses to miss her wedding, and Man's Best Friend turns out to be a giant roach. Shadow a being who's "just here to help," and another who's just here to hurt. Shiver as murderous antibodies attack an expedition, and a workfare crew struggles to dispose of hazardous junk from space. And of course, get a good laugh as you peruse the Want Ads and check your MarsMail.
