Stayin' Alive: New OSS Stories?
Blessings are falling from me onto your wonderful personage, OSS readers!
(That greeting, if you are wondering, originated in Phillip K. Dick's Martian Time Slip).
So, the one and only drawback of this particular subgenre of Science Fiction is the dearth of new stories. Or is it?
Certainly, and much to my chagrin, new stories are not published at the rate they once were. But they do occasionally come out. For example, I was introduced to the OSS by Ray Bradbury, but I didn't REALLY get into it until I found a book called Old Mars at my local Barnes and Noble.
Now, the fact that an OSS book was on sale at a Barnes and Noble was surprising, although I did not realize it at the time. Such books just don't get published that often. But the important discovery I made was that they do get published.
And so, I come to you, fellow readers, asking if you know of any recently published OSS literature. My list so far includes:
The Martian War
War of the Worlds: Global Dispatches
The Sky People (Lords of Creation Series)
The Courts of the Crimson Kings (Lords of Creation Series).
Does anyone know of anything to expand that list? Any Barsoom Pastiche or full-fledged independent stories?
