CAPRICORN – Zodiac Series #1

CAPRICORN – the first of Aussie Speculative FIction’s ‘Zodiac Series’ – is launching this weekend.

The Zodiac Series is a series of twelve anthologies, each focusing on a particular sign of the Zodiac. We have asked for speculative fiction short stories and poems inspired by the Zodiac signs, and received some wonderful submissions.

These anthologies feature an introductory poem by Zoey Xolton, a foreword by Sasha Hanton, and some wonderful stories and poems by some incredibly talented authors from Australia and New Zealand.

The stories are diverse and compelling; ‘Capricorn’s Return’ by Austin P. Sheehan tells the tale of a colony mission to the Gamma Capricorni system, Marcus Turner’s ‘Lord of the Deep’ deals with the ancient myths behind the Zodiac sign, and Alanah Andrews’ ‘The Capricorn Trial’ is set in a futuristic dystopia, where everyone must make it through the Zodiac Trials to live past twenty.

“A gruesome goat-fish carcass washes up on a beach. A colony mission to the Gamma Capricorni system goes horribly wrong. Friends compete in a race to survive the first Zodiac trial.

CAPRICORN is a collection of twisted poems and dark stories inspired by this enigmatic Zodiac sign, as well as retellings of the myths behind the sign. The tales span multiple genres, including science fiction, horror, fantasy, dystopian and urban fantasy, and are told by some of the exciting new stars of the Australian and New Zealand speculative fiction scene.”

It’s a wonderful collection of dark and twisted tales, so make sure you have a look at it here. It could be the perfect gift for a hard-to-buy-for Capricorn.

Every month we plan on releasing another anthology in the Zodiac series, with the next collection focusing on Aquarius. We are currently accepting submissions for several upcoming Zodiac anthologies, so if you’re interested in being part of this series, check out our submissions page.

Thank you for supporting local authors, and for taking the time to read this post.
