  Absolutely Brilliant in Chrome: The Phobos Galaxy 1

The latest in Phobos Books’ series of breakthrough science fiction anthologies, ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT IN CHROME features stories by science fiction’s best new authors, tales that warp time and space, twist religion and reality, distort morality and reason and challenge the very boundaries of science fiction.

Edited by Keith Olexa (Hitting the Skids in Pixeltown, Empire of Dreams and Miracles, Nobody Gets the Girl), CHROME’s next wave of great SF writers spread their wings in stories that soar, from Rebecca Carmi's 800-year-long interstellar epistle, "Letters to A Sister," to Daniel Conover’s politically skewed first contact yarn “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” to “Ascension”, Matt Rotundo’s pilgrimage up a hellish alien mountain. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT IN CHROME breaks new ground for the science fiction genre that will capture the hearts and minds of SF's next generation.

CHROME’s seven authors, including Analog writer Carl Frederick, Year's Best Fantasy & Horror, 16 contributor Justin Stanchfield, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds writer Gordon Gross,  and Nobody Gets the Girl novelist James Maxey, each bowed in the Phobos Contest Anthologies Hitting the Skids in Pixeltown and Empire of Dreams and Miracles, and continue to demonstrate their consistent, and absolutely brilliant, talents in CHROME. Phobos Contest judges—most notably novelists Orson Scott Card, Larry Niven and Catherine Asaro, and editors Jim Shooter and Dave McDonnell—recognized in each a spark of creative genius. 

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT IN CHROME, in bookstores now, features provocative cover art by Janet "JayJay" Jackson.
