What do these three writers have in common? | LeDrew’s Blog

They are, collectively, the only people who will ever be able to say they’ve been featured in every From the Rock collection: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Chillers, Dystopia, and now Flights from the Rock.

Over the last five years, the From the Rock series has become one that is routinely among the bestselling anthologies in Canada. It has become a series that makes authors bestsellers. With that success has come increased competition: the first volume, Sci-Fi from the Rock, featured many reprints from previous defunct Engen volumes, as we only received a dozen or so submissions. Now we routinely receive over a hundred, typically 300,000 words worth of submissions.

To put it bluntly, the competition has gotten fierce.

Which makes it all the more impressive that there are three authors who have made it into every, single, collection: Ali House, Peter J Foote, & Matthew Daniels.

They’ve grown with the collection, their skills improve and expand on their previous work. We are genuinely excited for you to read what they have in the Flights from the Rock collection.

All of the authors that make it into these collections are amazing, but these three have proven themselves the most versatile (so far), able to rise to the challenge of different genres, themes, and styles.

So let’s take a moment to celebrate these three, and also, look forward to the gladiatorial competition that will become Pulp Sci-Fi from the Rock and beyond: which of these will continue? Will there eventually only be one?

We didn’t realize when we created the From the Rock series that we we creating a complex long-form game of Survivor, but we’re down. 🙂

Check out Flights from the Rock July 14, and scope out the competition!
