In this instalment of Short Fiction Watch, we wanted to draw your attention to DANGEROUS GAMES, an anthology published by Solaris Books, edited by Jonathan Oliver, which includes a story by Zeno’s very own award-winning author Lavie Tidhar.
Lavie’s story is succinctly-entitled DIE. Here’s the anthology’s synopsis…
In a world ruled by chance, one rash decision could bring down the house, one roll of the dice could bring untold wealth, or the end of everything.
The players have gathered around the table, each to tell their story – often dark, always compelling. Within you will find tales of the players and the played, lives governed by games deadly, weird, or downright bizarre.
Bringing together tales of the weird and the macabre, Dangerous Games is a diverse collection of voices, featuring incredible new fiction by Chuck Wendig, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Lavie Tidhar, Benjanun Sriduangkaew, Paul Kearney, Libby McGugan, Yoon Ha Lee, Gary Northfield, Melanie Tem, Hillary Monahan, Tade Thompson, Rebecca Levene, Ivo Stourton, Gary McMahon, Robert Shearman, Nik Vincent, Helen Marshall, and Pat Cadigan.
DANGEROUS GAMES is due to be published on December 4th, 2014.
Lavie is the author of The Bookman Histories (Angry Robot), OSAMA (Solaris), THE VIOLENT CENTURY and A MAN LIES DREAMING (Hodder), and a clutch of critically-acclaimed novellas and short stories.
