Today I'm highlighting Zombies Need Brains' second anthology project, TEMPORALLY OUT OF ORDER. This was a fun project, mostly just because of the topic: gadgets acting "temporally" out of order, rather than "temporarily" out of order. Patricia Bray and I had a blast reading the stories and putting this one together, and since I'd already run a Kickstarter, I wasn't pulling my hair out in frustration (as much) while trying to get the funding. The Kickstarter ran smoother and funded much quicker than the first, which is always nice. It was obvious that ZNB had gained a little ground in the "awareness" area; people were beginning to notice us.

Here's the run-down of the theme and the Table of Contents. This anthology is available in many ebook formats and also as a trade paperback. And remember you can always get it through the ZNB online store (www.zombiesneedbrains.com and click "store").

It’s frustrating when a gadget stops working. But what if the gadget is working fine, it’s just “temporally” out of order? What would you do if you discovered your cell phone linked you to a different time? Or that your camera took pictures of the past?

In this collection, seventeen leading science fiction authors share their take on what happens when gadgets run temporally amok. From past to future, humor to horror, there’s something for everyone.

Join Seanan McGuire, Elektra Hammond, David B. Coe, Chuck Rothman, Faith Hunter, Edmund R. Schubert, Steve Ruskin, Sofie Bird, Laura Resnick, Amy Griswold, Laura Anne Gilman, Susan Jett, Gini Koch, Christopher Barili, Stephen Leigh, Juliet E. McKenna, and Jeremy Sim as they investigate how ordinary objects behaving temporally out of order can change our everyday lives.

Hmm, I've gotten my Hugo nomination ballot for this year. Just FYI, Patricia Bray and I are eligible for a Hugo as Best Editor, Short Fiction, since we had 2 anthologies released last year (ALIEN ARTIFACTS and WERE-) and we've had more than four anthologies released so far overall. If you're eligible to nominate for the Hugo's, consider adding us to your Editor Short Form nomination list.

Also, all of the stories in ALIEN ARTIFACTS and WERE- are eligible in either the short story or novella categories. I'll get a better write-up for these (indicating which are short stories and which are novellas) later, but you can start thinking about whether any of those stories are worthy of nomination now.
