51xkzlmpkjlLooking for something to hold you over while you wait for the third book in The Tyrant Strategy? Look no further, my friends–I’ve got something perfect to help you through the winter months.

I’m pleased to announce The Newcomer is now available for purchase. Edited by Alasdair Shaw, author of the everything from physics primers to sci-fi novels, The Newcomer is an anthology of twelve science fiction short stories all centered around a common theme: the arrival of someone or something new. Where do I come in? I’ll tell you in a moment, but first, check out the teaser for the antho itself:

From a young couple struggling to look after their baby to a new captain’s reluctance to take command of her ship, and from a sun-addled stranger’s appearance in town to the emergence of a sentient AI, the twelve tales presented here explore the central theme of an arrival by someone or something new.

There’s even an alien puppy.
