Today I write a happy blog post about a story I sold that will soon be published. That story is titled “God Needs Not the Future.” This one has the end of the world, a detective with an emerging superpower, a crazy preacher, Nephilim, and androids. And a flood.

The Streets of Shadows anthology edited by Maurice Broaddus and Jerry Gordon is now up for preorder.

Says Jerry Gordon:

We’ll be launching Streets of Shadows near the end of this month at Context in Columbus, Ohio.  Ten of the books contributors will be at the launch, including both editors and:  Gary Kloster, Jonathan Maberry, Daniel R. Robichaud, Jason Sizemore, Lucy Snyder, Lucien Soulban, Tim Waggoner, and Michael West.

Here’s the cool cover art:

A preacher on the radio predicted end times, but then, didn’t they always?
