My Book Release



I guess people who are connected to me on social media are aware one of my short stories has recently been published in a multi author, multi genre anthology. The best part is it happens to be in my favorite genre - Science Fiction. It is nothing close to what my idols write or the dream story I plan to write one day. But still I feel I made a decent beginning in my favorite genre.

As part of the promotion for this book, I have written an article on the science fiction genre on the website that organized the contest to select stories for the book. Please find the article here I hope it give some insight on the genre to those not initiated into this genre.

The above article is more an impersonal essay. Soon I will be writing a post on my personal experiences with the genre - how I got introduced to the genre, how my interest developed, why I love the genre and all that stuff.

Anyone interested in buying the book can buy at one of these sites. It is a 240 page book titled 'Ten Shades of Life' having 10 stories by 10 different authors and costs Rs. 139.

I will soon post a review of the book focusing on the other stories on the book as well once I am done reading them. I have interacted with the other authors and they seem like great people. I hope their stories are great too. You can check out the preview of the stories written by fellow author Dr. Roshan Radhakrishnan here.
