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.
