Abaculus – 2007 Anthology Update

Abaculus is a yearly collection of the best and most unique science fiction, fantasy, and horror short stories of 2007. The book will include authors from all levels of writing, and from all corners of the earth. We will also be featuring several pieces from comic artists Joe Navarro and Marlo Ting, as well as debuting the cover artwork by the newest Leucrota Pack member, Elizabeth John.

We are currently in the editing process, and finalizing the last few open slots by choosing through the few hundred entries we received during the last week of submissions. We were amazed and delighted by the number of international entries, and by the quality of the many amateur submissions. We even received several by a few very talented and promising teens, who stood out among others even before noting the age difference.

Judging was based primarily on plot, characterization, originality, author’s voice and tone, and overall reading enjoyment.

Abaculus will be relased on December 7, 2007. Preorders will be available after November 1, 2007.

  1. When will you know the last additions to the book? What’s the latest date that you will notify the authors whether their story will be included? Thanks

  2. All included authors will be notified no later than September 15, 2007. We received too many entries to respond to each personally, so if we don’t get back to you by then, you can assume that your story did not make it. Thanks for stopping by!

    abaculus is a good name for any collection of items that fit good to each other…

  4. Heh, yes that’s the idea we were going for. As short stories usually can not stand alone, neither can a single tile. I’m glad that you like it as well.
