Ever wonder what became of those fantastic worlds described by
A. Conan Doyle and Edgar Rice Burroughs? Third Flatiron Publishing
presents "Lost Worlds, Retraced," a spate of new speculative fiction
short stories by an international group of award-winning and emerging
writers. Contributors include Maureen Bowden, Ron Collins, Neil
Davies, Judith Field, Bruce Golden, Sarah Hodgetts, DeAnna Knippling,
Andrew Kozma, Marilyn K. Martin, Will Morton, Konstantine Paradias,
Soham Saha, and Jonathan Shipley.
These storytellers retrace the lost paths of an ancient
sun-worshipping civilization, a doomed planet, a tribe of persecuted
witches and robots, a cartoon world stalked by death, and an abrupt
end to fossil fuel use. Meet a spy at the end of the universe, a Sons
of Chaos motorcycle chick, a TV survival show host, and, of course,
that icy rock we once knew as the planet Pluto.
