I started reading early, very early. My parents have told me I started when I was three. All I can confirm is that before I hit the fourth grade I had discovered the works of Poe, Doyle and Wells.
They started me on my way to discovering many other authors and their great works of mysteries, thrillers, science fiction and fantasy. Herbert, Clarke, Rice, Crispin, Duane, McDevitt, Ludlum and Clancy. It also laid the groundwork for me writing my own books and short stories in these genres. But Wells will always have a special place of honor, being the first sci-fi author I read while Doyle holds that distinction in mysteries.
So when Belanger Books announced they were putting together an anthology of Sherlock Holmes stories set within the stories of H.G. Wells, I got right to work. My story was accepted and the anthology was released in 2017.
Not too long ago, Belanger Books put out a call for a tribute to H.G. Wells anthology and I submitted a story, The Fall of Denver. It was accepted and now the Kickstarter for this two-volume anthology is live. If you are a fan of H.G. Wells like I am, here’s your chance to enjoy 20 stories set within the many worlds Wells created.
Here’s the link to the Kickstarter: Tribute to H.G. Wells
There are plenty of options and rewards, as there always is with a Belanger Kickstarter. Check it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
