Bio:  Not long ago, independent scifi author Derek J. Canyon floated an idea on his blog, seeking collaboration with other self publishing authors on a project to gain exposure for them all. That idea quickly evolved into this project.

Product description:  The Twelve Worlds Anthology is now available as an e-book on for the list price of $2.99. It will also be available on Smashwords. The anthology contains fourteen short stories from emerging independent authors in the genres of science fiction, horror, and fantasy. At almost 80,000 words total, this is an unbeatable value for fans of speculative fiction who want to help out a good cause.  All author royalties will be donated to Reading is Fundamental.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

The variety!  We have 14 authors contributing to this anthology so there is sure to be something for everyone.

Q: Why did you go indie?

Indie is fantastic in the way you can quickly communicate, collaborate, and publish an idea.  This project was done totally on-line for a good cause - literacy!  I don't know how else this kind of project would have been completed if we hadn't gone Indie.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

In Science Fiction:  I'm kinda ole school with Piers Anthony, Terri Pratchet, Douglas Adams...
