Description

Sorry Hugo This Is Not The Future...you wrote about. This is your fucking nightmare The Future is here and the future is now, the series this time around features a host of newcomers and each one has something awe inspiring to bring to the table along with some returning small press veterans including Ken Goldman, S. G. Cardin and featuring extremely gifted newcomers T. Blake Braddy, Angela Gray, J. Fraim, Sarah Whitaker, and Casey Fiesier. This is the annual anthology that LAKE FOSSIL PRESS publishes, but this time around showing the roots and inspirations ranging from Jules Verne, Phillip K. Dick, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and H.G. Wells. The only theme with this anthology is near future dystopia and that is tricky concept to get going but each author gives their dark take on this genre. Nickolaus A. Pacione performs all the photography on the cover of this one. This is noted for the dark cyberpunk opus by the editor which is a coded swipe at the Chicago Democratic Machine politics and the 21 plus years represents the previous mayor in office and the winter darkness in September symbolizes the coldness of the impending socialism on this county. The years when had passed when this was published and one of the machine practitioners had been locked up and the key thrown away for a decade plus four years. 7 years ago when this first arrived and this didn't get it's proper due back then -- S. G. Cardin predicted the demise of Osama Bin Laden as the editor's story is set on his sister's 34th birthday. Recommended if you like the book Pacione's friend Ray R. Wise wrote called Hunter A. One of his friends is featured in the TOC of this one and Pacione wanted to keep the roster of record. The opus Pacione and two breakouts show they have a lot to prove. This was since the ensemble and the magazine been a long while Pacione had an anthology of all modern era authors. So with little wait let's hope this approves kids -- welcome back guys; everyone is the roster of record on this project with new cover art based on the original photographs the editor took in 2007-2008. Where is that ultimate world that Hugo Gernsback wrote about -- sorry asshole we've been jipped and the man who coined the term "television." I guess he's scared shitless of those future world leaders are writing about very fucked up ideas set in the near future. Welcome to a future hell where Chicago is under a permafrost as some think God is a fly -- the world of Nanos gathers within these pages as you will see a dark superhero emerge in a then 2009 Chicago. That story inspired Pacione to toy around a 2009 reality of his own with "Media Darling." Pacione's story plays with an idea he brought into play with The Storms Of Armageddon as this story will be coming back to the second collection -- Pacione's mother yelled at him for even coming up with the idea. He was laughing very hard because he left San Fran for dead in Cyber: Terror: Machine.show more

About Et Al

Nickolaus Pacione managed to get this one up rather quickly. He thought of this one should had got more recognition than it did. So here it is. He has written six books and edited nine anthologies his sixth anthology and fourth sequel to Tabloid Purposes. He calls this one Gary Starta's installment but Tabloid Purposes IV is always going to be his -- he's working on anthology number ten and eleven but they will be released out of order. This is noted for "Cyber: Terror: Machine" set in the same years as Robocop and Terminator. It's not a sequel to any of them and he saw a kinship to Metropolis within the colorized version of the film. This anthology Pacione had a hard time getting everyone to match the vision he had in mind for this but the results turned out interesting enough. Born August 3, 1976, his 2014 release, "Legend Keeper" is similar in nature to Cyber: Terror: Machine -- that Dystopian element creeped into that monster. Cyber: Terror: Machine is the largest tale of his science fiction output and also one of the darkest; it takes ideas he explored with The Storms Of Armegeddon and brought them to Chicago. Dystopian Cli-Fi with his Storm Menace elements. The novella was quite menacing for him but predicted how print on demand tech will bring the print book back to the landscape.show more
