Third Round of M&M Admits

.

Today on A Motley Vision, William Morris has announced the next seven admits for Monsters and Mormons. Here’s the lowdown:

  • Novella Fangs of a Dragon by David J. West, author of the killer Heroes of the Fallen. He’s taken good old Porter Rockwell and combined him with a lot of facts and a sprinkling of fiction. As someone who’s read all the facts on the monster in question, let me just say that this is much more plausible than you might guess. Editorial aside though, when you get your own copy of M&M, look for West’s name and not the title. I’m gearing up for a possible battle of that. Great title? Yes. For this story? Arguable. (I love editor/writer fights. It’ll be fun to be the editor for a change.)
  • Short story “I Had Killed A Zombie” by Adam Greenwood a delightful (!)  post-apocalyptic zombie story that sounds like someone you know.
  • Comic “Mormon Golem” by Steve Morrison which places a golem in Far West, Missouri. A forgotten part of the Restoration of All Things, donchano.
  • Short story “That Leviathan, Whom Thou Hast Made” by Eric James Stone originally published in slightly different form in Analog. I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to write a story about Mormon aliens since high school, so I love seeing it done well.
  • Short story “The Living Wife” by Emily Milner is, arguably, monster-free, but I’m sure you’ll agree that without this supernatural domestic drama, M&M would be much poorer indeed.
  • Novella Brothers In Arms by Graham Bradley was dizzyingly fun — probably the best action scenes we’ve read yet, and there’s serious competition for that honor. This story swiftly became the standard by which we compared other submissions that aimed to thrill.
  • Comic “Traitors and Tyrants: A Wives of Erasmus Adventure” written by John Nakamura Remy with art by Galen Dara is the most fun I’ve had in alt-history for some time. I don’t want to give away too much, but know that sister wives have more time to study up on the deadly arts than wives that don’t share their husbands. Also, a certain seven-letter adjective that begins with K and ends with a double-S comes to mind.

You can have no idea how awesome this book is shaping up to be. High-minded publisher phrasing fails me, I’m so excited.

  1. I just saw this for the first time, after reading the AMV post on round three. I’m really excited to work with you guys–thanks for what you said about my entry. When I heard about this anthology last year I got so stoked, I had to hammer out this story for you. I’m really glad you liked it.
