The Razor’s Edge

As mentioned elsewhere, I’ve agreed to write a story for a military science fiction and fantasy anthology entitled The Razor’s Edge, which is one of three anthologies to be published by the small press Zombies Need Brains and being funded by a kickstarter.

The Razor’s Edge explores the thin line between being a rebel and an insurgent in military SF&F, while Guilds & Glaives features slashing blades and dark magic. The third anthology – Second Round — allows readers to travel through time with Gilgamesh in a time-traveling bar.

If you’d like to help bring these themes to life, you can back the Kickstarter at and find out more about the small press at!

    On rebel vs insurgent, in the now non-newsworthy Syria conflict, the BBC used the word “activist” to infer a good rebel and “terrorist” for a bad one (such as IS).

    It all depends on where you stand. Fine line indeed.

    How should the Confederate states now be viewed I wonder. I read an article on the Gettysburg cemetary where their solders lay in neglected and unmaintained graves which says a lot.

    When Charles II was restored to the English and Scottish crowns, his supporters dug up Oliver Cromwell, symbolically beheaded him and put his skull on a pike. Those who signed the death warrant of Charles I (and VI) were hunted down if they were still alive and most were killed. Yet these same people had been earlier heralded as great men who rebelled against a bad regime.

  2. I was happy to discover that “The Razor’s Edge” will also have a story by Sharon Lee + Steve Miller 🙂

      Mary, your comment led me to go and pledge immediately, as I love the Liaden books!
