Cover Reveal for Bizarre Bazaar
Updated: Aug 27, 2022
Bizarre Bazaar is a collection of seventeen stories that invite and beguile the reader to look at new and old tales in a fresh light. Fairy tales are reborn as science fiction romps. Silly folklore matures with the weight of tradition to approach truth. And ghost stories teach us all we need to know about love. Moving through tale to reimagined tale, the deft transformations are mirrored in the reader – and we become the change we read.
My story in this anthology is titled "Racing the Marineris." It is a retelling of "The Tortoise and the Hare" in the form of an overland match race set on Mars. Will the brother-and-sister team in a racecar nicknamed "The Tortoise" somehow overcome the billionaire and his AI-piloted racecar nicknamed "The Hare?" And how far will they push the limits of the rules and their safety to win the $200 million prize?
The book is published by the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and goes on sale September 1, 2022.
