About scottsigler

#1 New York Times bestselling author Scott Sigler is probably stalking you right now, looking for a way to steal your soul and sell it at the local Five-And-Dime.

I’m doing a Marie Curie horror story

Marie Curie, Two-Time WWE champ

Sheesh, with Facebook, Insta, Twitter, LinkedIn and more, is there any point of blogging anymore? I dunno, but here’s some news.

Blackstone Publishing will be doing an anthology of stories about a young Marie Curie, titled THE HITHERTO SECRET EXPERIMENTS OF MARIE CURIE. No big deal, just a passel of fictional tales about the two-time Nobel Prize winner (two-time science champeeen, whoooo!). The anthology will be edited by Henry Herz and Bryan Thomas Schmidt. From the posting on Herz’s site:

The anthology will comprise 18 dark stories of science fiction, fantasy, and/or horror set during Marie Curie’s high school years in Poland. What might she have done had she applied her genius in darker directions? The rockstar cast of award-winning and bestselling authors is: Scott Westerfeld, Jane Yolen, Mylo Carbia, Alethea Kontis, Jonathan Maberry, Scott Sigler, Stacia Deutsch, Seanan McGuire, Sarah Beth Durst, Lissa Price, Christine Taylor-Butler, Jo Whittemore, Dee Leone, Susanne Lambdin, Emily McCosh, Steve Pantazis, myself, and Bryan Thomas Schmidt & GP Charles.

The book/audiobook should be out in 2022.

I expect my story to be darker, gorier, and more just plain wrong than all the others combined. Looking at that list of authors, that will be one high bar of “wrong,” so I’ve got my work cut out for me.

Ma Sigler’s Revenge…

#1 NYT Bestsellers Scott Sigler and James Patterson combine to write a tale of a girl's love for her favorite unicorn.A few years back, I did an April Fool’s joke where I said I was writing a YA novel with James Patterson. I thought no one would believe this. I thought this was a very transparent gag, but you know what? People did believe it – including my mom, who loves Patterson books. She was very excited. When I finally told her it was just a joke, she was not happy with her youngest child.

She swore she would get revenge…
